F309 & Antipsychotics?! Compliance?! QAPI?!: Your Integrated Pathway to Dementia Care. Part Six: "Quality is Our Business Model"
Recorded On: 09/16/2013
TQM, CQI, QI, QA&A - if you recognize these you know they reflect several decades of quality programs in long term care. In fact if you recognize these, then you know that Quality has been the long term care business model for a very long time. The new guidance at F-309 recognizes the importance of a nursing center's QA&A process and encourages surveyors to examine the systemic approaches used to deliver care and services for a resident with dementia. This session will validate your current QA&A efforts and support your transition to QAPI with practical tips and useful pointers.
1) Relate current QA&A practices to QAPI principles.
2) Consider ways to organize your current QA&A work and committees to transition to a QAPI approach
