While others fret proposed funding cuts and potential healthcare reform, Pioneer followers will be focusing on culture-change oriented solutions
Even as provider advocates intensify their lobbying efforts over threatened government funding levels during Congress's August recess, the Pioneer Network will host its 9th annual conference Wednesday through Friday in Little Rock, AR. More than 1,200 attendees are expected to focus on advancing person-directed care through culture change practices and principles under the "Coming together. Creating community." conference theme. Dozens of intensive courses and concurrent educational sessions will take place, while inspirational plenary session speakers will be Richard Taylor, PhD, a retired psychologist and speaker who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's-type dementia eight years ago, and Bill Thomas, founder of the Green House model of senior care.
