We are the Carolinas chapter of The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine (CPALTC), and we heartily welcome your interest in our organization!
As a regional affiliate of the organization formerly known as AMDA, we strive to be a resource for providers and medical directors to strengthen long-term care in The Carolinas. We recognize that you work in one of the most challenging medical environments – post-acute and long-term care. Membership in CPALTC provides you with outstanding assets including, clinical practice guidelines, political advocacy, national networking, and excellent specialized CME.
Over the last 5 years, CPALTC has expanded its membership in number and diversity of members. We welcome Students, Residents, Fellows, Advanced Care Practitioners, and physicians as well as Directors of Nursing and Administrators. We strive to engage anyone who has interest in our industry, but especially those who feel passionate about caring for the vulnerable population we serve.
Our premier event each year is Caring in The Carolinas, an educational event that hosted over 130 registrants in 2019. Offering learning opportunities from pre-eminent thought leaders in our discipline, the conference spurs fellowship among participants in an often-isolating work setting. The immediate past president of the national organization gave the closing address last year. Learn more about our conference in the events section of CPALT’s website.
CPALTC provides several membership categories to encourage participation from providers at all levels of patient care. If you have any questions about a membership category do not hesitate to contact me at taclements@novanthealth.org or our executive director, Kate Brown at Kate Hilchey kate_hilchey@yahoo.com. Join us as we advance our mission and vision the future of post-acute and long-term care in The Carolinas. We need you- and we believe you need us to make a difference in the lives of our patients!
