Success Drives Decision to Continue the Advancing Excellence Campaign
The lead article in the April issue of The Campaign Advance e-newsletter reports that initial successes at measurable improving care for nursing home residents signaled the need to continue the campaign beyond its initial two-year period. The e-newsletter also features: information for consumers; details about how-to videos on the campaign’s Web site; a nursing home success story; and a report from a Local Area Network for Excellence (LANE). The Campaign Advance is available on the campaign’s Web site.
