Maintaining a high standard of care quality remains a challenge in long term care settings across the nation. Evidence from multiple sources continues to document unsatisfactory resident outcomes, underscoring the need for more effective quality initiatives. The papers included in this symposium describe quality initiatives designed to improve care quality for older adults, either within long term care or as a strategy to decrease the need for long term care. Collectively, the papers offer important insights into quality initiatives at the direct care, organizational and public policy levels. The first paper describes an adapted grief management model to assist family caregivers of people admitted to long term care. The second paper describes an intervention designed to improve staff knowledge and patient self management following hospitalization for heart failure, including the impact on need for post-hospital nursing home care. The third paper describes a well established partnership between one state Department of Health and a school of nursing to improve care practices and resident outcomes in nursing homes throughout the state, including an analysis of program cost. The last paper presents a recent quality initiative sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) that is designed to improve overall long term care quality and provide consumers with quality related information on individual nursing homes.
