The Artifacts of Culture Change is a tool created by CMA to assess and enhance performance of a long-term care facility. Your project will provide you with the opportunity to become familiar with this tool. You will create a fictitious Long-term care (LTC) facility for your project and use this facility as the basis to complete the Artifacts of Culture Change tool. Once you have completed the form, you will create an action plan for your LTC and focus on two areas to improve the facility.
There are two parts to your project.
