   Join our own culture change pundit Carmen Bowman, MHS, on her monthly web talk show. Actually, it's better than a talk show because you too can join the conversation by asking questions of Carmen and her guests. Carmen's smart look at culture change focuses on a wide variety of topics. She brings an insider's view of regulations, and reports on little changes happening in government, in attitude, in practice. Each month she will share culture change news and updates, amusing and heartwarming stories, and interview a guest on a relevant and timely topic.

TOPIC FOR OCTOBER 12, 2018:
 KNOW BETTER, DO BETTER: Part 3

 

GUEST: SARAH BROWN, Executive Director, Empira

HOST: Carmen Bowman


The status quo had to change. Consider these facts:
  • Restorative sleep is vital to the overall wellbeing of humans
  • Sleep fragmentation is a primary contributor to some of the most challenging issues facing long term care(e.g. falls, behavioral expression, pain, incontinence, skin breakdown, unnecessary use of antipsychotics, function decline and the list goes on)
Empira recognized the challenge and is now making a "night and day" difference for the residents they serve through a culture of restorative sleep. For this, the 3rd show in our series, Sarah Brown will share what Empira has learned, how they transformed their culture and the impact of this on residents.
