“Best manager training I have ever seen.”

The PACE Manager training is designed for PACE leaders either new or experienced with PACE.  Organizations nationwide have sent PACE Center Managers/Facilitators, Executive Directors, Program Directors, RN Supervisors, QA Coordinators, and other clinical disciplines. Past attendees have found the training very worthwhile – it has enabled them to deepen their PACE knowledge and learn new skills and tools to try at their PACE centers.

Co-led by PACEpartners staff and On Lok direct care managers, the training provides dynamic, interactive sessions to give your PACE staff knowledge and strategies to handle challenging issues faced by those in PACE centers. Click for a PACE Manager Training Agenda. The agenda includes sessions on:

  • IDT Facilitation
  • Maximizing IDT Meetings
  • Regulatory Environment
  • Risk Tolerance in Senior Care
  • Social Styles for Communication

In addition, this training program offers attendees opportunities for discussion and networking with leaders from PACE organizations nationwide.
