Program Description: Developing a culture of leadership, based in a robust QAPI program, can take your
agency to the next level, inspiring your team, increasing admissions and improving compliance. Participants will develop an understanding of the
regulatory requirements for hospice QAPI programs, discuss the impact that quality has on their organization and teams and understand how to develop a
meaningful and compliant culture of leadership. From interviewing new employees to ensuring that each patient and family receive exceptional care,
identifying, implementing and empowering leaders within your organization, with a shared mission and vision, participants will leave with ideas on
how to develop a culture of leadership in their own agency.
