About the Leadership
The Indiana Healthcare Leadership Conference is an 
on-going initiative of the Indiana State Department of 
Health (ISDH). Each Conference is a one-day event 
focusing primarily on a single issue.
 
The Leadership Conferences, which began in June 
2007, have grown in attendance from 720 participants
to over 1200 participants. Attendees have been treated 
to outstanding presentations on falls management, 
reduction of pressure ulcers, behavior management and 
reduction of restraints, emergency preparedness
planning and managing incontinence care, staffing issues,
and healthcare associated infections. A variety of
educational and practical resources on all these topics
were provided at each conference.
 
The conferences are intended to bring together statewide 
healthcare leaders to promote important quality of care 
issues. This conference will include providers from long 
term care, state surveyors, healthcare organizations, and 
individuals with significant interests in healthcare.
Invited Participants
The ISDH invites each comprehensive care facility 
(nursing home) to send two representatives to the 
conference. Each facility  may select the individuals 
attending the conference on behalf of their facility. The
ISDH recommends individuals such as the facility
administrator, director of nursing, compliance officer,
or other members of your patient safety team. 
Corporate offices of facilities are also invited to send
