AMDCP Credit Designation: This session has been approved for a total of 1.5 Management credit hours toward certification as a Certified Medical Director in Long Term Care (CMD).
Session Description: Collaborative practice between physicians and advanced practice nurses is acknowledged as supportive of improved resident care, but how this best occurs in long term care is still debated. Confusion over the semantic versus the best practice based concepts of supervision and collaboration only exacerbate this situation. This session will present the concepts derived by AMDA's Workgroup (a collaborative of both physicians and advanced practice nurses) on the Role of the Attending Physician and Advanced Practice Nurse as they relate to best collaborative practices via didactic and case based scenarios.
Define supervision and collaboration as relates to long term care practices, and contrast them to other sites of service.
Discuss the differing needs for success of collaborative practices that occur in different settings.
Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of different styles of collaborative practice with regards to resident care and outcomes.
