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.
