Virginia Long-Term Care Clinician Network
The Virginia Long-Term Care Clinician Network (LTC-CN) brings together medical directors and clinicians practicing in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other congregate care settings, such as Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). It provides a monthly forum for peer discussions and ensures access to the latest clinical COVID-19 care guidelines.
