Medical Directors oversee physician services in nursing homes. AMDA, the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine advocates for public policy and legislation initiatives in Congress representing interests that will ensure quality of life and quality of care for our elder citizens. Most recently, AMDA successfully spearheaded an initiative to thwart cuts in medicate reimbursement that would have negatively impacted physician and rehabilitation services in long-term care settings. Bardakh helps listeners understand the importance of asking pertinent questions about who will be caring for their loved ones and the importance of training and competency in geriatrics, a specialty focused on the specific health needs, care and disease prevention for all physicians serving in the long term care setting. Explanations are framed against a backdrop of ageism and the importance of advocacy in caring for vulnerable adults to the same degree we do for our children.
