Pioneer Network: Hot Topics – Culture Change in Action

February 18, 2021: The Artifacts of Culture Change 2.0 – It’s Here
Guides: Karen Schoeneman, Karen Schoeneman Consulting: Quality of Life and Culture Change, and Carmen Bowman, Regulator turned Educator, Edu-Catering: Catering Education for Compliance and Culture Change

The Artifacts of Culture Change (ACC), originally developed in 2006 by Karen Schoeneman and Carmen Bowman as a CMS funded project, has recently been updated and expanded into the ACC 2.0, reflecting the many culture change and person-directed practices that are part of turning an institution into a home/community. The ACC 2.0 is integral to the culture change movement and a great way for communities to assess and measure where they are on the culture change journey, celebrate accomplishments, and generate goals and action plans for the journey. There are now two ACC 2.0 tools: one for nursing homes and the other for assisted living communities ACC-AL). Life plan communities have their choice of the two.

This webinar will provide an overview of the ACC 2.0 for nursing homes and the new ACC-AL for assisted living. Karen and Carmen will explain why and how the 2.0 versions were developed, introduce the subsections with examples, and describe best practices for completing the tool as a team.

And there’s more. Pioneer Network will soon be hosting web-based versions of both tools for download and/or online completion, along with videos to assist in completion of the tools. New web pages will soon be available with helpful resources to support teams in learning how to implement the practices reflected in the tool.
