The mission of the South Carolina Long Term Care Emergency Preparedness Educational Program (SC LTCEPEP) is to provide caregivers and administrators with critical knowledge, skills, and abilities related to disaster and emergency management decision-making skills by providing preparedness training to CMS certified long term care facility staff members.
This is a three-year program from 2021 – 2024. The first year featured a basic course offered eight times, two per healthcare coalition. The second year features the basic course and advanced course, offered 4 times each. This allows each healthcare coalition to host one basic course and one advanced course. The third year will include the same basic and advanced course offering numbers, 4 each, with locations swapped from year two.
Due to the program’s funding source, these courses are open to professionals representing CMS certified long term care facilities only (i.e. nursing homes), NOT personal care homes, assisted living facilities, hospice, or memory care centers.
