The non-profit National Private Duty Association (NPDA) will host its Annual Leadership Conference in Orlando, Sept. 12-14, 2012. The theme for the event, held at the Hilton in the Walt Disney Resort, is Transitions in Care – The Time is Now. This year’s event will mark the organization’s 10th Anniversary.
The conference, open to all private duty home care companies, will include education programs led by private duty industry experts, peer networking and discussion opportunities, and an industry trade show. Attendees will participate in sessions on topics such as successfully running a competitive private duty business, addressing key clinical issues, taking advantage of advances in technology, hiring and keeping the best employees, increasing profits through quality care and today’s legal and regulatory issues.
Keynote presenters include Dr. Kent Bottles, who will address how private duty home care fits into the transformation of the American clinical delivery system, human resources expert Mel Kleiman who will share his proven process on how to build world-class teams by recruiting, hiring and retaining the best employees, and industry attorney John C. Gilliland, II will provide a legal update.
“There are many changes and advances in our competitive industry,” said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. “NPDA’s intent is to provide a key opportunity for home care agency professionals to learn the latest trends from industry leaders and the best business practices from thought leaders outside our industry. We look forward to sharing with those in the private duty home care business at this major event.”
In addition to the main conference, a pre-conference workshop titled The Essential Tools for Transitions in Care: Operations, Marketing and Technology will take place Sept. 11-12, 2012. Featured speakers for this intensive event will be Elaine Davis, CareMinders; Melanie Stover, Home Care Sales by Powershot Training; Laurie Orlov, Aging in Place Technology Watch; Doug Bush, Care Innovations; and Lisa Ferden, Generations Homecare Systems.
“Our advanced pre-conference event takes the Transitions in Care conference theme to the next level,” said McMackin. “The in-depth sessions will be led by experts in three critical areas of the hospital-to-home transitional care model.”
