Clinical Practice

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​AHC​A/NCAL strives to provide important resources, guides, and information specifically geared for clinical staff in long term and post-acute care centers. With so many centers around the country working to improve, no center is alone in its endeavors, regardless of if it is focused on improving center safety, building a new specific condition ward, or reevaluating the nutrition plan for residents.
