Program Overview and Objectives

With skill and compassion, these caregivers are an exceptional group of professionals that have the benefit of spending the greatest amount of time with the persons being served. Because they are typically the first to observe changes in status, they have potential to be the source of solutions to a majority of the challenges confronting most care settings.

Upon completion of this program, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify strategies to assist aging patients with mental changes.
  • Define appropriate and adequate infection prevention methods while providing care to patients.
  • Identify strategies to prevent or manage compassion fatigue as a patient care provider


Please let me know if you have any questions about the CNA Conference. We hope to “see” you soon!
