NCTRC Telehealth Hack – Post-Acute Care and Long Term Care Facility Pandemic Response Best Practices and Lessons Learned

January 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

NCTRC Telehealth Hack Series
Date and Time: January 27, 11 AM - 12 PM PT

Optimal processes for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infections and outbreaks in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC) facilities has proven to be one of the most critical challenges of the COVID-19 era. High risk populations, especially older adults, who are facility-dwelling have accounted for approximately 25-40% of all mortality in the United States since March 2020. Telehealth services and technologies can serve as key tools to address this major challenge. This webinar reviews the principles and practices of the Geriatric Engagement and Resource Integration for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Facilities (GERI-PaL) program, a collaborative and interprofessional telehealth endeavor serving these high-risk populations in central Virginia.
