On September 29, 2006 the National Nursing Home Quality Summit was held in Washington, D.C.
The Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes website describes their work as follows:
Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes is a new coalition based, two-year campaign that launched in September 2006. The campaign is reinvigorating efforts to improve the quality of care and quality of life for those living or recuperating in America's nursing homes.
The campaign's unprecedented coalition includes long-term care providers, caregivers, medical and quality improvement experts, government agencies, consumers and others. Together, we are building on the success of other quality initiatives, including Quality First, the Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI), the culture change movement, and other quality initiatives.Learn more about the campaign and its goals.
