Sharing in Our Goal: Improving Residents' Lives - April 15-16, 2014

Join staff from the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA) and health care providers as they explore two major issues facing residents in Iowa's long-term care facilities - resident sexuality, and fall prevention.  Nationally-known speakers will address these topics and provide insight into ways to protect residents while remaining in compliance with regulatory requirements.  Download the training session brochure here.
