It was announced this week that the Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) will be, for the first time, opening up their very popular webinar series to other vendors and providers. This unique opportunity will allow senior care visionaries to share their best practices and stories to a new and larger audience.
Open until the end of February, those interested can go online to submit their abstracts. The theme is “The Four R’s: Retention, Recruitment, Referrals and Regulation.” All submitted topics must be related to senior care providers retaining staff, recruiting new staff, obtaining client referrals and/or keeping up with regulations and remaining in compliance. Sessions may cover one or all of the topics. All presentations must include reference to why professional educational development and continuing education are core to be successful in one or all of these topics.
Submissions must include a presentation abstract of 150-200 words, the presenter’s biography and speaking history, and learning outcomes for the session. Presentations are to be no longer than one hour in length. Those interested in presenting a webinar through IPCed’s webinar series are encouraged to contact Marc Reed, Marketing Manager for more information. The abstract submission form is available here http://www.ipced.com/webinars/abstracts.
In 2016, IPCed held an average of three webinars a month, attracting registrations that averaged anywhere from 500 to 1,000 a month. The viewers of these webinars ranged across the eldercare continuum, including Home Care, Home Health, Hospice, Private Duty Home Care, Assisted Living Facilities and Skilled Nursing Facilities.
