The One a Month campaign is aimed to build on recent success in lowering the use of off label antipsychotics in the treatment of some Texas nursing home residents.

The Quality Initiative is an effort that builds upon existing work the long term and post-acute care field is doing by setting specific, measurable targets to further improve quality of care in America’s skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities. AHCA/NCAL members are encouraged to reach defined, concrete goals over the next three years, in four core areas.
