2018 Annual Program Directors Meeting
Published on November 6, 2018
Paragon Rehabilitation recently celebrated our 12th annual Program Directors Meeting in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Over the course of three days, guest speakers discussed topics pertinent to Paragon’s goals and mission. Among these speakers were Cynthia Morton, Executive Vice President of NASL, who provided a Washington Policy update, and Jane Moffett, Chief Product Officer of Casamba, who discussed PDPM Strategies.
Leaders gathered to participate in a wide variety of team-building exercises in the form of Breakout Sessions and Wellness Events. Attendees also received awards for outstanding service for the campus they were representing, such as “Clinical Program of The Year”, “Passionate Provider” and “Falls Prevention Awareness Day”.
Breakout Sessions included covered a variety of topics such as management techniques for therapy program directors, a home office trade show, therapy and the five-star rating system, falls assessment and intervention, and therapy in relation to wound care.
In addition to these sessions, attendees got to stretch their legs with a few wellness events. One event included walking and running teams who got to explore everything from downtown Fort Wayne to monuments, historic landmarks, historic restaurants, and pubs for a 2.5 mile stretch.
