hat a year it has been! I’m so looking forward to joining everyone for the 25th Symposium at the Grand Geneva Resort. We’ve all had to step up our game to meet the tide of changes. This year’s theme, Get Your Game On, reflects that together, we’ve got this! We can help each other. We will learn, grow, and inspire each other. Join nursing leaders from around the state. You’ll meet those who have been where you are, asked the questions you ask, and have gotten through the situations you face. You will Get Your Game On together. Mindy Meehean BSN, RN, DNS-CT President, Wisconsin Director of Nursing Council – Education Forum, Inc.
WI Director of Nursing Council 2 Get Your Game On
Listen to Inspirational Keynote Speakers… Keep Calm and Carry On: Learning to THRIVE During Changing Times Dr. Linda Shell Bring calm to the storm. Dr. Shell will encourage you to challenge traditional patterns of thought and see the world from a perspective that reframes stress, change, and failure to hope, optimism and opportunity. “This was by far one of the best talks that I have heard on this topic. Very inspiring and real! This was exactly what I needed to hear and I appreciate the skills and tips given.” Growth through the Gift of GAB: Improving People, Performance, and Productivity with a Smile Conor Cunneen, the Irishman Speaks In a highly informative and interactive program, Chicago-based Irishman Conor Cunneen demonstrates how to create a great patient experience AND a great work environment through the Gift of GAB. “Conor Cunneen was fantastic when he spoke to our 235 nurses. He nailed it on all levels: Learning, laughter, leadership, and always reminding us to keep the patient at the centre of our care.” ~ Association of Registered Nurses
Toxic Behaviors in Healthcare: Team Strategies to Improve Respectful Engagement and the Patient Experience Dr. Mitchell Kusy, Author of “Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore” Dr. Kusy is an international speaker and author. His evidence-based keynote is insightful and valuable. You’ll leave with tools that can be implemented immediately. “I had the pleasure of not only reading Dr. Kusy’s latest book, “Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore”, but hearing him. At some point in time we all work with a toxic person and Dr. Kusy’s knowledge on how to identify these individuals, work with these individuals and their different behaviors, and continue moving forward in your own career have been an exceptional lesson. I think this will be a game changer!”
So who should come to this Symposium? Directors of Nursing, Assistant Directors of Nursing, Administrators, Nursing Execuitives, Assisted Living Nursing Leadership, Hospice, Nurse Managers, Nurse Educators, Wound Care Nurses, & MDS Nurses

Get Your Game On! The Programs… Monday, February 25 KEYNOTE Keep Calm and Carry On: Learning to Thrive During Changing Times Dr. Linda Shell DNP, MA, RN | Achiever, Arranger, Activator, Learner, Connector at LindaShell.com The field of aging services is ever changing and filled with challenges and chaos for all levels of staff. Many are hopeful they can just survive the tumultuous environment from day to day. Research indicates that those with increased levels of resilience not only survive in such environments, but THRIVE when equipped with powerful leadership skills, resulting in increased work performance, job satisfaction and reduced turnover. What is resilience and how does one become resilient? Why has resilience become an essential characteristic for navigating the field of aging services? This session will discuss the concept of resilience and provide essential strategies and tips for building resilience in both self and others… and learning to THRIVE.
BREAKOUT: Legal Implications in LT/PAC for Wound Care Providers Dr. Joyce Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, CPSN, FAAN | Professor, College of Nursing, University of Nebraska Medical Center Wound care is completed by several types of providers, ranging from LPNs to wound care specialists. This talk will address legal exposure for the facility who uses their own employees for wound care, the role of a wound team, the need for policy and procedure and setting appropriate referral mechanisms. Legal exposure when outside wound care providers are used will also be addressed.
BREAKOUT: Mealtime Success: Understanding Common Challenges and Identifying Opportunities to Improving Eating-Related Outcomes in Older Adults Andrea Gilmore-Bykovskyi, PhD, RN | Assistant Professor the UW-Madison School of Nursing and Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center & Nicole Rogus-Pulia, PhD, CCC-SLP | Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Surgery and Affiliate faculty in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison This program will provide an overview of challenges and strategies to improve 8 Get Your Game On
mealtime experiences and eating-related outcomes among older adults, and particularly those living with cognitive impairment. To achieve this, the program will provide a comprehensive overview of the anatomy and physiology of swallowing and how aging influences swallowing physiology, as well as guidance regarding interpretation and implementation of speech-language pathology recommendations in addition to presenting environmental and caregiver-directed strategies to optimize the eating experience for older adults.
BREAKOUT: Seeing the Survey Through the Eyes of a Surveyor Leslie Mahoney, RN, BSN | CEO, SAVVY on the SOM Did you ever wonder how surveyors plan for your survey? Why do the surveyors show up and seem to zero in on your vulnerabilities? How do they know which residents to review? We all wish we could feel totally prepared and avoid the knot in your stomach when someone says, “the state just walked in.” We can help. STOP wishing and find out! Learn how to use the tools you already have in the same way the surveyors use them to prepare for your survey. Be ready for the Entrance Conference even if the survey starts on a weekend. Learn how surveyors determine compliance for regulations like Food and Nutrition Services, Abuse, Competency and Resident Focused Care.
BREAKOUT: Show Me Tissue Distortion and I’ll Show You Shear & Friction Dr. Joyce Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, CPSN, FAAN | Professor, College of Nursing, University of Nebraska Medical Center Several physical forces are known to lead to pressure injury/ulcer. This talk will discuss the changes seen in the tissues from pressure, shear and friction and microclimate. Additional factors that reduce the tolerance of soft tissue for pressure and shear will also be discussed. The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM): What the Nurse Leader Needs to Know Judi Kulus, MSN, MAT, RN, NHA, RAC-MT, DNS-CT | VP of Curriculum Development, American Association of Directors of Nursing Services (AADNS) A big change requires even bigger preparation. The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM), which is proposed to replace the current RUG-IV Medicare payment model, is no small matter. This session will help you gain knowledge of the components of the PDPM system, take a deep dive into the impact it will have on how care is delivered to your residents and how it will impact each of the casemix adjusted components. This session will help equip nurse leaders and executives to successfully lead your nursing teams as you transition to the new system. Get Your Game On 9
BREAKOUT: The New-Age ‘Behaviors’ in LT/PAC: Managing Mental Health and Preparing for Phase 3 Dr. Jennifer Stelter, Psy.D., CDP, CADDCT, CCTP | Operations Director of Clinical Programs, Alden Management Services The long-term care industry is always evolving with changing guidelines, regulations and expectations. However, the industry has also changed with regard to the comorbidities that our adult and senior population are challenged with when presenting for treatment. This lecture will provide a how-to when managing mental health symptomology in long-term care, such as addiction, post-traumatic stress, depression and suicidality, psychosis, etc. Additionally, prepare yourself with the 2019 CMS Mega Rule Change rollout of Phase 3 that includes a large focus on mental and psycho-social well-being.
BREAKOUT: Pressure Mapping Technology – Taking the Guess Work Out of Pressure Redistribution Amanda Bradley BSN, RN | Regional Director of Education & Samantha Hopp, RN, BSN | Dove Healthcare The presentation will offer the attendee the information on Pressure Mapping Technology (PMT) and its use in the long-term care setting to improve the overall quality of life of the residents entrusted to our care. The implementation of a pressure mapping system in a skilled nursing facility is a relatively new and innovative undertaking; however, it is invaluable in the quest to prevent pressure-related skin breakdown. This session will cover the basics of PMT, including a brief overview of current applications in one skilled nursing facility, implementation of a facility-wide PMT policy, and future directions for this new and upcoming pressure injury reduction modality.
Tuesday, February 26 KEYNOTE Growth through the Gift of GAB: Improving People, Performance, and Productivity with a Smile Conor Cunneen, the Irishman Speaks In a highly informative and interactive program, Chicago-based Irishman Conor Cunneen demonstrates how to create a great resident experience AND a great work environment through the Gift of GAB. The Irish are famous for the gift of gab, but in this powerful, funny program, Conor puts a unique perspective on G.A.B as an acronym for Goals, Attitude, Be10 Get Your Game On
havior. He shows how you can create a great patient experience through, G.A.B. But, let’s be realistic. You can only create a great patient experience if you have a great work environment, work well with your colleagues, and have a mutual sense of collaboration and support in your practice. So, we don’t just talk about the patient. We talk about you, your colleagues, your interaction with your patients, your colleagues and how going the extra yard for a colleague can result in your colleague leaving with a smile that is a mile wide! (OK, that would have to be a really wide exit door, but you know what Conor means!) Attendees will leave with a smile on the face, a spring in the step, AND memorable, actionable ideas to help you, and your colleagues, improve the work environment and the patient experience – with a Smile! Dialysis: It’s All About Teamwork Vicky Griffin BSN, RN | Infection Preventionist / Nurse Consultant Wisconsin Department of Quality Assurance How do you ensure care coordination for residents receiving dialysis? During this session we will identify national standards related to residents with chronic kidney disease and kidney failure. There will be a brief overview of chronic kidney disease and the risks associated with dialysis. The main focus will identify the individual and the collective responsibilities of the end stage renal disease. “Is It Pressure or Something Else”? Steven Antokal RN, BSN, CWCN, CCCN | Director of Clinical Education, DermaRite Industries, LLC The program will review some of the most common causes of ulceration in geriatric patients. The etiologies and nursing approach to different ulcer types will be reviewed. Specific risk factors and wound management will be discussed.

Wednesday, February 27 Nursing Staff Under F725 Christine Vause | Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Long Term Care Survey Branch 2 It’s nothing new that the facility must have sufficient nursing staff under F725. We’ll discuss the process used by surveyors to investigate issues related to F725, nursing services and training tags. We’ll review the PBJ reporting and CMS’s role to making the states aware of poor staffing patterns.
CLOSING KEYNOTE WORKSHOP Toxic Behaviors in Healthcare: Team Strategies to Improve Respectful Engagement and the Patient Experience Mitchel Kusy, Author of “Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore”, Corporate Psychologist and Professor There are often referred to as narcissists, bullies, and clever chameleons who knock down to those without perceived power, but kiss up to those with power,” said Dr. Mitch Kusy, author of Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore: A Leader’s Guide to Offset the Financial and Emotional Costs of Toxic Employees. They shame, manipulate, and belittle healthcare professionals in public and private as their modus operandi. We experience the angst they cause but are often unaware of their financial cost and, most importantly, their erosion of patient safety, the patient experience, and team performance. Until now. In this keynote address Dr. Mitch Kusy shares the results of his extensive 3-year national study with over 400 individuals on toxic personalities—with a whopping 39% from healthcare! They are the #1 reason good people quit. In fact, 31% of nurses reported they are likely to quit as a result of their disruptive behaviors. This keynote address extends beyond intuition, which is often proven wrong, in how to handle these Dr. Jekylls and Mr. Hydes who run the gamut from physician to nurse to administrator to direct care staff—from soup to nuts! No one is immune from the toll they take on others. Learn what to do and what not to do to create respectful cultures of everyday civility that means business!
