Caregiver burnout

How do we create strategic tools for keeping caregivers from experiencing burnout, experiencing less burnout. And when caregivers do experience burnout, how do we lessen the length of their burnout experience? The co-sponsors social work and nursing teams will weigh in.

Diversity and cultural training 

The Village at Rockville is home to residents and team members from a variety of different races, faiths and cultures. People from different backgrounds communicate differently. Strategies for establishing common ground at The Village at Rockville and at Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center will be presented as case studies for attendees and and their organizations.

Maintaining privacy and quality of care in virtual settings 

Telehealth visits and virtual meetings have become more prevalent when caring for older adults. However, in the age of HIPAA, how can we maintain privacy when caring for older adults in a more public (albeit virtual) forum? How do we maintain that those virtual conversations feel just as professional as a trip to a doctor’s office? Our admissions and nursing teams will share strategies for doing so.
