Presenter:  Barbara Frank, co-founder of B&F Consulting, Warren, RI and Clare Hays, MD, Medical Director, Birmingham Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Birmingham, AL, and Medical Director of Alabama CMS Innovation Center Project to Reduce Avoidable Hospitalizations among Nursing Home Residents, an AQAF initiative

This webinar provides the how-to for a simple, potent process of moving QI out of the conference room to the staff closest to the residents. During the webinar, speakers apply QI closest to the resident to preventing avoidable hospitalizations and use of antipsychotic medications for residents living with dementia but the practice can be used for any quality improvement effort.
