Sibert Lewis, Director of Activities at Carolina SeniorCare PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), has been selected to participate the National PACE 2018-19 Leadership Program. The program is designed to foster the next generation of PACE professionals.
PACE is a complex model of care that is growing faster than the number of trained or experienced PACE leaders. The need for PACE leadership training opportunities is paramount to the future success of each program and for PACE as a whole. To address this issue, the National PACE Association, in partnership with On Lok PACEpartners, developed the PACE Leadership Training Program. The PACE Leadership Training Program is designed for new PACE executives, as well as individuals exploring PACE as an option. The program provides a deeper understanding of PACE leadership requirements covering topics such as: effective leadership, quality care delivery, regulatory compliance and policy, center operations, reliable management systems, financial success, census and growth, and external factors impacting PACE.
“I am excited to be a part of the 2018-19 PACE Leadership class and look forward to engaging other PACE providers across the United States,” shared Lewis. “Being selected for this experience will help me become a better leader at Carolina SeniorCare.”
PACE Leadership participants learn through a combination of in-person meetings, online self-study and PACE site visits over the eight month time period. Lewis began his 20 weeks of deep-dive self-study in November and will conclude in March at the National PACE Association Spring Policy Forum in Washington, DC.Carolina SeniorCare located at 802 East Center Street, Lexington, NC serves seniors in Davidson, Rowan, Davie and Iredell counties.
