Welcome to the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative's Learning Session Six. Webinar 2 will focus on the elements of QAPI in nursing homes. Facilities will have an opportunity to learn the steps and processes needed to apply QAPI elements to their facility’s rehospitalization reduction program effectively.
Nursing homes are required to have a QAA committee in place that meets at least quarterly and as needed to coordinate and evaluate activities under the QAPI program. In this session, participants will walk through a QAA/QAPI meeting agenda and guide developed by Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network to demonstrate how effective QAA/QAPI committee meetings guide QAPI implementation.
How do you engage your team actively in Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI)?
During this call, learn how to work with physicians to ensure compliance with the new psychotropic medication prescribing requirements for long-term care facilities. Also, find out how nursing homes are putting the new Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) requirements into practice. Additionally, CMS experts share updates on the progress of the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes and QAPI. A question and answer session follows the presentations.
Stratis Health's nursing home team, as part of Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network, will be leading a breakout session on QAPI during the three-day 69th Annual Care Providers Convention and Exposition.
