Greetings Long Term Care Providers!

Welcome to ALMDA—The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care, Alabama’s state chapter affiliate of AMDA! As an organization, we aim to be your number one source of information and education in the several areas including clinical medicine, medical direction, regulatory issues and interdisciplinary team care. In the increasingly complex healthcare system, we must continue to provide high quality, high value care in a low-cost environment. Please join us at our two annual meetings when we bring in state, regional, and national leaders to address these topics.

Consider membership in ALMDA. We offer quality education, stellar networking, and advocacy at the state level. We have extended benefits through AMDA including free webinars, clinical practice guidelines, national advocacy and national networking. Please look for a new referral initiative in November for the national organization.

Please note that we welcome membership from all: medical directors, attending physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, administrators, directors of nursing, and facility staff. Please download our Membership and Conference Registration form for membership categories and pricing.

I look forward to seeing you soon! Thanks for joining ALMDA.

Complete the Survey: be a Part of Shaping the Understanding of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine

Practitioners in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC) medicine have an unusual and important opportunity to help shape the body of knowledge for this unique field by responding to a pair of job task surveys, one for medical directors and the other for attending physicians. This project is the most recent step AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and its affiliates, The American Board of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, and the Foundation for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine are taking to define the skills, training and experience needed to practice medicine and medical direction today in the changing world of PA/LTC.

The Alabama Medical Directors Association is in the unique position of having our board serve on an Advisory Board to the Alabama Department of Health Care Facilities, thereby having direct access to discuss issues in regards to inspections.  Additionally, ALMDA offers two educational events each year at our state level to help you learn more about functioning in long term care as medical directors and patient care providers.
