Alabama Support for Culture Change

The Alabama Department of Public Health Bureau of Licensure and Certification (ADPH) recently joined forces with the Alabama Coalition for Culture Change, the Alabama Nursing Home Association, Alabama Medical Directors Association, Alabama State Long Term Care Ombudsman, AQAF (Alabama's QIO) and the University of Alabama Center for Mental Health and Aging to form the Local Network of Excellence (LANE) to promote the Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes Campaign in Alabama. Rick Harris, Director of the Bureau of Health Provider Standards, sent a personal letter to all Alabama nursing homes encouraging enrollment in this national collaborative effort aligned with person-centered care strategies to improve clinical outcomes, promote consistent assignment, enhance quality of life for residents and build a stronger, more stable workforce. ADPH is also participating in special recognition events for nursing home participants.
