The Pioneer Network Initiative: Moving into the Second Decade, Year 1


Over the last decade, the Pioneer Network has grown into a respected leader of the movement to transform nursing homes in the U.S. Its challenge now is to promote culture change among the majority of nursing homes that have yet to adopt the principles of resident-centered care. This project will support Pioneer as it seeks to: 1) define core competencies of resident-centered care—the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that are necessary to provide such care in nursing homes; 2) collaborate with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to explore creative ways by which traditional facilities can be made to look and feel more like a home; and 3) enlist new partners in the effort to spread resident-centered practices. The funding requested here is for the first year of a proposed two-year effort; CMS and Pioneer will provide cofunding.
