"Addressing Stress and Anxiety in the Coronavirus Crisis"

- Staff Education via Teleconference with Barbara Speedling -

Join Barbara for this series of engaging conversations on the contemporary topics impacting the quality of care and quality of life for residents living in long-term care.  More than a review of the Federal regulations, Barbara brings her unique perspective to these discussions, helping the listener to apply the education in real world circumstances.

The Education Station is designed as an effective, efficient remedy to assist facilities in achieving regulatory compliance in staff education and training.  Appropriate to individual or classroom learning, each 30-60-minute, streaming video presentation includes a downloadable power point presentation. Subscribers also receive a lesson plan, competency evaluation, resource materials, where applicable, and a certificate of completion.

This entire library of videos and corresponding resources is accessible throughout the year with the password you will receive after purchasing your subscription.
