  • Embracing the New Dining Practice Standards

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 12/03/2013

    This program will provide an overview of new Dining Practice Standards; discuss the newly released CMS surveyor training related to these standards; and introduce the latest concepts in dining services that support this new philosophy.

    New Standards of Practice in Dining have the clinical support and regulatory backing to revolutionize food service in nursing homes.

    How are facilities implementing these new standards successfully?

    New Dining Practice Standards reveal that negative outcomes are often the result when restricting food choices, and instead recommend that older adults not be placed on very restrictive diets even when chronic conditions exist. The new standards reflect evidence based research available to date; current thinking; and consensus of several national professional organizations. Stakeholders include physicians (AMDA), dietitians and dietary mangers (AND/ANFP)), nurses (AALTCN, AANAC, GAPNA, HIGN, NADONA, NGNA), therapists (AOTA, ASHA) and pharmacists (ASCP).

    Administrators, Directors of Nursing, Dietitians and Dietary Mangers are strongly encouraged to attend. This program will provide an overview of new Dining Practice Standards; discuss the newly released CMS surveyor training related to these standards; and introduce the latest concepts in dining services that support this new philosophy. Wherever you are in the culture change / person centered care spectrum, and regardless of payer source and budget constraints, our goal is to provide opportunities to enhance the dining experience through choice, accessibility and individualization. Regulatory guidance will be addressed along with clinical standard recommendations.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify the Standards of Practice for Dining in Elderly Adults
    2. Discuss regulatory support of the Dining Practice Standards
    3. Discuss common barriers to implementation and success stories and resources to overcoming them
