Long-Term Care Business Fundamentals
Today’s picture of long-term care is growing and changing. Currently, more than 10,000 "boomers" are turning 65 every day. As a result, the definition of long-term care is expanding to include adult day care centers, assisted living facilities, group homes, continuing care retirement communities, and hospice, in addition to the more traditional nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities.
Long-Term Care Business Fundamentals is a new program designed to teach pharmacists how to efficiently and profitably provide long-term care services to residents in a variety of settings. Fundamentals offers proven marketing strategies, analyzes industry competition, and helps participants understand and adapt to ever-changing regulatory and legislative policies that influence this complex industry. Learn how to expand and thrive in this profitable, growing market.
