1989 Management Seminars for the New York Association of Long Term Care Administrators.
Towne, Violet A.
The collaboration between the continuing education arm of the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome and the New York Association for Long Term Care Administrators in the design, development and delivery of educational programs for nursing home and adult home administrators in New York State is reported. Program content is based on an annual needs assessment conducted among association members. The six 1989 seminars concentrated on timely and important topics that help administrators gain a better understanding of, and improve their effectiveness and efficiency in, day-to-day operation of facilities. Program staff are experts in their fields. A contract is established between the association and the college outlining each organization's role and responsibilities. The seminars are funded jointly by the association and program participants, and evaluation indicates the programs are very successful. This type of contractual agreement could easily be replicated by colleges or universities, and professional associations, organizations, or agencies of any type. (Author/MSE)
