Institute for Professional Care Education Opens Call for Speakers

Vancouver, WA (January 24, 2017) - The Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) announced today that for the first time, they are opening up their webinars to other vendors, providers and senior care visionaries in the United States, so they can share their best practices and stories.

The 2017 IPCed Webinar Call for Abstracts will be open February 1, 2017 and will close on February 28, 2017.

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.

"We have found tremendous success in our webinars," said Sharon Brothers, President and Founder of IPCed. "For our business, they have allowed us to become thought leaders in the post-acute market. Senior care professionals are attracted to our webinars because we explore important topics that impact and challenge our industry."

IPCed's theme for 2017 is "The Four R's: Retention, Recruitment, Referrals and Regulations." All submitted topics must be related to post-acute 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 areas.

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
