This training program is intended for staff and students from many levels, disciplines, and settings (both facility and community-based), including staff involved in providing long term care (e.g., nursing staff and administrators), as well as behavioral health staff who work with older adults.

Additionally, staff from Adult Protective Services, home health, adult day healthcare, respite care, area agencies on aging, Emergency Department staff of acute care hospitals, hospital discharge planners, and others serving older adults could benefit from the training.

As always, students in any field of aging are encouraged to attend!


Adopting a person-directed culture in health care means a commitment to ongoing learning. We need to challenge traditional learning so that education itself is person-directed. Through 5-8 minute videos that are memorable and practical, microlearning offers a new culture of education that meets people where THEY are in their busy lives of caring. In this session, presenters will share how Virginia nursing homes and primary care providers have been breaking new ground using microlearning, its impact, and lessons learned. Participants will experience microlearning through a variety of relevant, interactive learning resources they can apply right away and will discover in the process, new pathways for person-directed education.


  1. Participants will gain an understanding of what microlearning is, how it has been used in other fields, and how it was innovatively used with nursing home teams and primary care providers.
  2. Participants will be able to explain how the project was conceived and funded and view lessons that were developed using CMS’ Hand in Hand and other sources.
  3. Participants will review the results of the program evaluation and explore its impact on knowledge about person-directed care.

LEVEL: Beginner
