Carolina Nursing Center for Lifelong Learning: Medications and Older Adults

While older adults often have trouble accessing essential medications, they make up a large proportion of medication consumers in the United States, with most older adults taking as many as 6 medications at any given time. Unfortunately, older adults also experience more harmful side effects from those medications, often leading to increased morbidity, increased dependence, disability, hospitalization and even death. At this day-long program, expert speakers will give participants the tools needed to navigate this problem through the discussion of new medication-centered initiatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); resources available to help with medication access issues; techniques of assessing risks and benefits of specific medications; and interventions that enhance medication safety in older adults, including de-prescribing. 

You will not want to wait to register, as this program is bound to become one of our most popular continuing education offerings! Sign up today and mark your calendar for April 20, 2018, for Medications and Older Adults at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.

Target Audience

RNs, APRNs, Pharmacists, MDs, allied health professionals

North Carolina Council of Community Programs: Emerging Horizons Conference

to Dec 8

North Carolina Council of Community Programs: Emerging Horizons Conference

The NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has set out a plan to implement whole person Medicaid managed care in North Carolina over the next several years. This includes integrating physical and behavioral healthcare for individuals in the MH/IDD/ SUD population with the highest levels of need while ensuring the integrity of specialty services through a defined service management process. At this time it is unclear what the proposed management organizations will look like or how they will operate given the regions outlined in the plan. One thing is clear, however; DHHS intends to move quickly to begin implementation of the program design. This year’s conference will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from both state and national Medicaid leaders and from those already offering statewide managed care plans across the country. Speakers will also address innovations on a number of hot button topics – value based care, social determinants, the opioid crisis, care integration and much more. Register Now →

MHPA201: Navigating Change - The Future of Medicaid

Medicaid Health Plans of America is the leading national trade association representing Medicaid managed care plans. MHPA and its health plan members serve the nation’s poorest, most vulnerable populations across the United States.

MHPA17, the largest Medicaid managed care conference in the U.S., provides a platform for industry leaders to address key issues, healthcare solutions and best practice panels to ensure high quality care for Medicaid enrollees.

As we embark on a new year filled with monumental change, we are sure to see the Medicaid program face its share of challenges. Health care reform, Medicaid in particular, has already emerged as a key issue. MHPA, the only trade association that represents Medicaid managed care plans exclusively, is committed to being a resource to any and all involved in the upcoming health care reform discussions. As health plans adapt, MHPA17 will be the place they turn for the answers they need to navigate this change.

MHPA17 will focus on the future of Medicaid with special attention to POLICY and OPERATIONS within the plans.  MHPA’s annual conference will feature a third INNOVATION track highlighting key business practices and programs that have brought quality care to the members they serve. Register Now →
