ASHNHA CNO/DON & LTC In-person Committee Meetings
Postponement of ASHNHA April Learning Collaboratives - Updated 3/12/20
ASHNHA is postponing our planned learning collaboratives and in person committee meetings scheduled for April 22, 23 & 24. We aim to support facilities during this intense period of ramping up and help ‘flatten the curve’ of the COVID-19 viral threat by limiting potential exposures that could negatively affect staff, patients, facilities, and communities.
ASHNHA is sensitive to the need to conserve staff resources given the current increased workload in facilities state-wide to develop action plans and prepare for potential surge scenarios. We will continue to evaluate this dynamic situation and establish a date in the near future to reschedule these valuable events. Thank you for your hard work, coordinated efforts and swift actions to #flattenthecurve. Working together we can create a safer Alaska.
