Resource TitleAdvancing Excellence
DescriptionA new coalition of groups representing healthcare providers, caregivers, medical and quality improvement experts, government agencies, consumers and others have joined together to launch a new two-year Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes campaign. This national campaign seeks excellence in the quality of life and quality of care for the more than 1.5 million American nursing home residents by enhancing choice, strengthening workforce, and improving clinical outcomes. The campaign supporters believe that quality nursing home care should be an automatic expectation for everyone, nothing less, and are committed to working together to engage nursing homes in the goals of this campaign in order to achieve real progress in quality of care. Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes builds on the work and goals of other initiatives such as the Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI), Quality First, and the culture change movement, bringing these initiatives (and their supporters) together to help foster continued quality improvement in nursing homes.
