FMDA Webinar | Communication Strategies for Implementing the COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate in Nursing Homes

On June 7, FMDA – The Florida Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care (PALTC) Medicine launched its vaccination confidence initiative which focused on Florida skilled nursing facilities with the lowest staff vaccination rates. Under the auspices of FMDA’s Quality Advocacy Coalition with support from the United Health Foundation, the program aims to increase vaccination rates at skilled nursing facilities (SNF) by engaging with the staff in-person and virtually to provide knowledge, open discussion, and education through presentations and videos from world-class experts in PALTC.

FMDA is the official state affiliate and one of the largest chapters of AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine. It is also a Specialty Society of the Florida Medical Association and liaises with the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association.

There continues to be significant concern and hesitancy towards the vaccine from staff in Florida’s skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Low staff vaccination rates are putting the health and safety of staff and residents alike at risk of spreading the deadly virus. Working together, we can effect change.   

Increase Staff Vaccination Rates * Prevent Staff Exodus * Keep Staff and Residents Safe, Healthy, and Alive * Maintain Quality and Continuity of Care

This virtual Train the Trainer program is scheduled from 12-1:15 p.m. (ET), Monday, Aug. 30.
