The Avila Institute of Gerontology hosts a multitude of webinars to offer a convenient way for long-term care professionals to stay current in their field. Most webinars also include the opportunity for Nursing Home Administrators, Nurses, Social Workers, Dietitians, Catholic Chaplains and Recreation Therapists to earn continuing education. Check the “Continuing Education” tab to see if credit hours are available for your discipline. The Avila Institute also cosponsors four webinars a year with the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO). These quarterly webinars focus on long-term care issues experienced by religious communities, congregations and their community members. The co-hosted webinars do not offer continuing education credit.

    Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is an organizational development process of exploration based on the power of positive inquiry. The focus of AI involves creating a collaborative environment of discovery into what makes an organization most effective. Based on positive psychology principles, AI asks questions that ignite the positive energy within the organization rather than spotlight breakdowns and malfunctions. Join Dr. Battisti as he offers an overview of the principles and process of AI and how they can be used within organizations to create a culture of creativity and reflective thought that enhances quality of care delivery. A Plan of action will be initiated during the presentation to begin the process of incorporating AI practices.
