Building Trust in Long Term Care: A Strategy to Improve Vaccine Uptake, Patient Safety & Staff Wellbeing

AHCA/NCAL has launched a four-part virtual program that equips long term care leaders with trust-building skills and practices to continue to increase vaccine uptake, improve infection prevention and control and staff retention.

“The pace of change and uncertainty that facilities have faced since the beginning of the pandemic, including an unprecedented workforce crisis, has been overwhelming, resulting in a growing distrust with all aspects of health care that has affected our interactions with one another,” said Dr. David Gifford, Chief Medical Officer at AHCA/NCAL, and board-certified gerontologist. “What is exciting about our new course is that it really addresses this issue of trust. Trust building creates this essential foundation for facilities and their teams to adapt and thrive in times of continuous change, which ultimately leads to a stronger operation that allows for further improvements in care and outcomes.”
