Second National Conference on Long-Term Care Issues.

The American Nurses Association will be co-sponsoring the Second National Conference on Long-Term Care Issues along with The Hillhaven and Beverly Foundations and 13 other cosponsoring groups. This year's theme is "Environmental Options For The Aged." The conference is scheduled for March 31 -April 2, 1982, at the International Inn Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The purpose of this Conference is not only to impact those participants attending the event, but through the support of those co-sponsoring agencies concerned, sensitization will take place to stimulate further research, development, and educational activities in the entire area of environmental options for the aged.

The overall objectives of the National Conference include: exploring the management philosophy and the therapeutic and physical environments necessary for the aged and examining current legislative, public policy, regulatory, and educational implications of providing positive environmental options, along with the economic restraints.

An up-to-date information data base will be provided to all conference participants on demographics, financial concerns, and current practices in the area of providing positive environmental options for the aged.

Continuing education credit has been applied to most licensing boards for professional disciplines wherever appropriate. For more information regarding the Conference, contact the Second National Conference on Long Term Care, P.O. Box 8471, Emeryville, CA 94662. 415/655-6374.
