AHCA/NCAL Quality Award virtual workshops for Silver & Gold

Are you an AHCA/NCAL Quality Award recipient? It’s time to start thinking about the next step in your quality journey!

First—Do you know the status of your current quality award? Is your facility an “active” award recipient or a “past” recipient? Take a look at the year you received your current award and compare it to the national quality award program renewal policy. Once you know your renewal status, you will be able to determine if you want to move “up,” renew at the same level, or start the process all over. You can learn more about the national quality award program here

Second—If you will be applying (or reapplying) at the Silver or Gold award level, have we got a deal for you! Care Providers of Minnesota has teamed up with the Health Care Association of Michigan, the Michigan Center for Assisted Living, and other AHCA/NCAL state affiliates to provide virtual quality award workshops to help you better understand the award criteria, scoring, and strategies for a successful 2023 application submission. The Silver award consists of five workshops in August and September, the Gold has six workshops in August and September. All workshops will be held virtually via zoom. 

Third—Find out more. See the Silver program brochure here and the Gold brochure here. All registration and payment will be through the normal Care Providers of Minnesota process. Only Care Providers of Minnesota members are permitted to register at this price through Care Providers of Minnesota.  

Fourth is pricejust $250.00 per connection for the entire series! Only one CE per connection. This program has been submitted for 15 continuing education hours to NAB/NCERS (which if approved, is accepted by BELTSS for both nursing home administrators and licensed assisted living directors). 

Fifth—Register! Register for the Silver workshop series here or the Gold workshop series here. We will be providing a registration confirmation, and then providing the Health Care Association of Michigan (HCAM) with a list of registrations. HCAM will coordinate the zoom links with those registered.
