14th Annual FOCUS Conference

 On November 18 and 19, 2015, CCDET staff members, Renee’ Rickert and Sharon Rickords, attended the 14th Annual FOCUS Conference as exhibitors. This conference, sponsored by The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Quality Assurance (DQA), was held at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center, Wisconsin Dells, WI. The FOCUS 2015 Conference was developed in collaboration with DQA, health care providers and provider association representatives.

Over 900 individuals attended from various assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and facilities serving individuals with intellectual disabilities. DQA staff members were also in attendance.

This conference provides an excellent opportunity for CCDET to share its many training programs and registry services designed for the conference audience including caregiver and dementia related trainings and CBRF (Community Based Residential Facilities) Registry Services. CCDET looks forward to attending this conference again in 2016!
