Rural LTC is a challenge for medical directors at a number of levels, including: coordinating regulation with practice, systems development and process, and staff mind set. Rural facilities that are community supported and single entities have a unique set of issues as do rural facilities that are part of corporate chains. Clinical outcomes and care delivered should be raised to acceptable levels. This session will discuss the challenges encountered in rural LTC facilities and provide successful strategies to overcome these challenges.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Discuss challenges that Medical Directors and PCPs encounter in rural LTC settings.
(2) Describe strategies successfully used in rural settings to remain current with new regulations and evolving practice principles in Geriatric Medicine.
(3) Explain approaches that have been successful in rural settings to keep staff focused on LTC initiatives and QAPI supervision.
(4) Utilize strategies to reach out to rural families to educate them on the aging process and LTC expectations.
