Dementia and New Staff Orientation

A specialized Positive Approach® to Care orientation curriculum for new nursing home staff will be developed, pilot-tested and disseminated to nursing homes over the course of the three-year funding period.

USI students and selected nursing homes will participate in pilot-testing the curriculum, and then 21 nursing homes are expected to participate in a statewide roll-out.

Anticipated dates for nursing home involvement: Beginning Fall of 2019

If your nursing home is interested in participating or for more information, please complete this short survey.
