  • Functional Outcomes Improvement Training

    Contains 31 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Skilled nursing care providers improve the lives of the residents they care for in a number of ways, including improving their functional outcomes and independence. The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the IMPACT Act, and CMS all called for the development of functional improvement measures based on the self-care and mobility sections of the Continuity Assessment Record and Evaluation (CARE) tool. Maintaining or improving mobility and self-care abilities is important to healthy aging and maximizing independence. This course provides specialized training for those who are interested in improving functional outcomes, improving quality, and improving services. It will advance the knowledge, skills and attitudes by providing a wide array of learning tools and resources to meet the needs of various staff and departments.
