Great Plains - Mountain GWEP Consortium
Several HRSA funded Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Programs (GWEPs) collaborated to develop and deliver training for long-term care (LTC) facilities on Resiliency for staff and residents. Collectively, the GWEPs bring together national expertise in Geriatrics and Quality Improvement. The consortium uses the ECHO / Zoom format to deliver interactive presentations. All sessions are free and they are archived for new and established LTC staff to access. The program promotes the concept of "All teach, All Learn." The goal of the program is to improve the knowledge and actions of LTC staff towards better care for older adults.
