- February 10, 2017: The New CMS Dementia Care-Focused Survey: Create a Proactive, Preventive Culture – Part 2
- Guest Host: Megan Mannan, Action Pact Consultant
This CMS survey ascertains a community’s compliance with Care and Services for a Resident with Dementia, Unnecessary Drugs, Assessment and Care Planning. Become familiar with the survey, surveyor worksheets and how both have been integrated into the survey process. Most importantly, ensure you know best practices both recognized by CMS and the culture change movement. Learn to view “behaviors” as communication; recognize dementia-related communications; be individual-centered, not institution-centered as CMS requires; offer meaningful engagement by all staff all day to reduce antipsychotics. It’s time to create a proactive, preventive, individualized, resident -focused dementia care culture.
Please see the Action Pact event for more information including registration.
