McKnight's Online Expo is back for its 10th year, bigger and better than ever. The profession's virtual trade show will take place March 29-30 with five sessions and an exhibit hall that still cost nothing for participants. Attendees also have the option of collecting up to five free continuing education (CE) credits.

Thousands of long-term care professionals have attended sessions over the years, and a record crowd is expected again. Remember: You cash in on this simply by using your computer or Internet-enabled device, wherever you are.

Payment is power so we kick things off with the inimitable Leah Klusch, RN, BSN, FACHCA, at 10 a.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday March 29. “MDS 3.0 Update: Get ready for more changes” is the title of her session.

Next comes Joyce M. Black, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, the past president of the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and one of the foremost experts on wound care in the world. Black's session, “Deep tissue injuries — recognition, strategies and risk,” is not to be missed.

The first day ends with a fascinating technology track presentation from David Finkelstein, the chief information officer at RiverSpring Health in New York, with “Technology trends and best practices."

 As always, there is an interactive virtual exhibition hall where you can mouse-click in and out of vendor booths specially set up for the event.

“Engaging staff in reducing readmissions to improve quality" will start Day 2 with featured presenter Elaine Healy, M.D., the vice president of medical affairs at United Hebrew of New Rochelle, at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time. 

The closing session, Beth Burnham Mace's “The state of capital availability,” like all others, will start at 1 p.m. Eastern and be geared toward long-term care professionals at all levels.
