2017 FALA Annual Conference

Each year the Florida Assisted Living Association holds its annual conference for the assisted living industry. Participants are able to engage in active learning, participate in critical discussions, and hear from outstanding presenters with a broad range of expertise. Attendees expect to walk away with ready-to-use information, ideas, and best practices that both challenge and inspire them.

American Clinical Solutions has been invited by the President of the Florida Assisted Living Association and the The Florida Assisted Living Board of Directors  to present at the annual conference and trade show to be held on August 14 – 17, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.

Clinicians managing the care of residents in assisted living facilities, independent living environments, group homes and continuing care retirement centers may prescribe controlled substances, anti-psychotic and anti-depressant drugs for different reasons – pain management, mental health disorders, or neurological disorders.

Diane Johnson will be presenting “That’s Nice; But That Doesn’t Happen in My Facility”, identifying fact and trends on prescription practices, misuses and abuses within the U.S. The presentation will discuss the risks associated with improper medication management in the elderly, as well as the benefits of using lab-guided medication management solutions to support independence, quality of life, and clinical and operational best practice.
