The current times bring many leadership challenges in home care and hospice.  With the retiring baby boomer generation, opportunities exist for a new generation and the departing leaders have a responsibility to mentor, engage, and provide  vision for the incoming leaders.  This pre-conference will take a closer look at succession-planning, how to provide leadership education to a new generation that might be attracted to different aspects of the industry, and how to bring out the best in business skills for clinicians rising to management levels.  

Regardless of a leader’s background, it can be complicated to prioritize agency initiatives in a world where everything needs to be done today, and session faculty will be providing a toolkit to help navigate these challenges.

Learning Outcomes

This pre-conference will cover how to help educate new executives entering the scene who might not have a background in home health. Common questions such as “Where do I find the CoPs and what do they mean for me as an agency executive,” “What is QAPI,” or “What affects star ratings, home health compare, or PEPPER” can be answered by preparing toolkits of clinical information that managers should still know. Additionally, attendees will learn about the importance of encouraging new leaders (rising from the clinical side of the industry) to learn about business. Issues such as HR faux-pas, melding business and care-specific skills, and prioritizing business tasks against clinical tasks will be discussed, as well as how to foster better relationships between clinical and case managers.
