As a long-term care professional, you understand the trends, issues, and challenges facing our profession. Now is your chance to share ideas that reflect your best practices, lessons learned and professional insight, as well as programs that enhance the long term and post-acute care service delivery.
UHCA|UCAL holds two large conferences each year.
- Our Spring Leadership Conference will be April 2024 at Utah Tech University in sunny St. George, Utah.
- Our Fall Convention & Expo will be September 2024 at the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy, Utah.
We are particularly interested in proposals that address emerging issues in the long-term care profession, such as infection control, census, staffing and patient satisfaction, and focus areas from the Centers for Disease Prevention Infection and Control (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Congress.
UHCA|UCAL represents long term care facilities, providing care and services to elderly and disabled people. The convention draws hundreds of attendees, most of whom are facility owners, corporate management, administrators, and facility specialists.
The audience is experienced and knowledgeable and expects the most current information and highest quality training available. The audience expects to leave the convention with practical and immediately implementable information and ideas. Use of case studies, stories, and other techniques to help the learner think about the topic in a new way is highly encouraged. If the proposal is being submitted by a person or organization that is not a provider, it is suggested that – when appropriate - you include a provider or the provider perspective in your remarks. Attendees are not interested in sales pitches in any presentation, but are interested in learning from their peers.
As appropriate, speakers should be mindful that their session content be applicable to providers in both skilled nursing and assisted living settings as both will be in attendance.
Individuals submitting proposals will be notified regarding the results of the selection process. Please give UHCA|UCAL time to respond to all proposals.
