Share This Event

*Registration payment includes Credit Cards and Interfund Transfers ONLY.

Target Audience

Nurses, Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Counselors, Activity Professional, and any other healthcare professionals interested in the impact social isolation can have on long-term care facility residents, families and staff.


REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED. This webinar will be available as a recording later this week with limited credits available.

The technical interventions to managing infection disease and isolation are well defined, including equipment and procedures. Much less defined is the impact to groups of human beings who are suddenly separated from other human beings; their families, their facility neighbors and peers, the staff. This webinar will discuss the impact and practical, everyday strategies staff can use to address isolation for themselves, families and other informal care partners, and residents.
