Pioneer Network’s Hot Topics: Culture Change in Action Webinar

February 15, 2018: Eliminating Suffering for Residents with End Stage Dementia (Focus on Death and Hospice/End of Life CEP) 
Guide: Maureen Nash, MD, MS

When it comes to providing the best care at end of life for residents living with dementia, are we doing the best we can? Do we always recognize when someone is in the end stages of dementia so that we can provide interventions such as palliative care and hospice?

Join Dr. Nash, a board-certified physician in both internal medicine and psychiatry, and Medical Director of Providence Elderplace Oregon, a Program of All Inclusive Care of the Elderly, as she shares with you best practices that can help eliminate suffering for residents with end stage dementia. And then, together we will explore how these best practices support the CMS Focus on Death and Hospice/End of Life Critical Element Pathways, providing you with a tool to assess and monitor your practices.

 

March 15, 2018: A Person-Centered Approach to Infection Prevention (Focus on Urinary-Catheter-UTI and Urinary Incontinence CEP) 
Guide: Lynn Meyer, BSN, MPH, CIC (Certified Infection Preventionist)

Infection Prevention, antibiotic stewardship, Infection Preventionist…we see these words in the new CMS Conditions of Participation, but what exactly do they mean for the care partners and residents in our nursing homes? How do I prevent the spread of infection among residents and staff – after all, this is the residents home, it’s not a hospital! And besides…where can I find the time?!

Together with Lynn Meyer, you will explore best practices in infection prevention and see how they are supported by person-centered principles. Lynn will share tools and tips to help you keep it simple AND attain regulatory compliance.

The RAI process in relationship to Medicare is also confusing and errors can be a financial nightmare for facilities. This workshop will help clear up the confusion surrounding the process.

This workshop is geared towards those individuals working in long-term care who have a leadership role such as the ADM, DON, ADON, or MDS Coordinator.
