Collaborative Materials

National Change Package

The Change Package (version 2.0) for the national version of the NHQCC contains ideas and guidance that will help all of our local NHQCC participants accomplish more during the Collaborative.

The comprehensive document is organized around seven key strategies, with a number of practical change ideas defined for each:

  1. Lead with a sense of purpose
     
  2. Recruit and retain quality staff
     
  3. Connect with residents in a celebration of their lives
     
  4. Nourish teamwork and communication
     
  5. Be a continuous learning organization
     
  6. Provide exceptional compassionate clinical care that treats the whole person
     
  7. Construct solid business practices that support your purpose

Resources developed specifically for participants of Qualis Health's Nursing Home Quality of Care Collaborative (NHQCC) will be posted to this page.

For tools more focused on a particular quality measure, see the topics in the lefthand navigation menu.
