Many facilities run their care process out of fear of the survey system or on regulations alone, without following an evidence based care process. With the implementation of MDS 3.0 and the new Care Area Assessment (CAA), facilities will need to show they are using evidence based and expert endorsed resources.
Appendix C in the new MDS Manual references the AMDA Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) and the CMS State Operations Manual references AMDA CPGs within the tags themselves.
This session will detail the four stages of the geriatric care process; recognition, assessment (root cause analysis), treatment and monitoring, with the AMDA CPGs and discuss how the care process is part of a risk management program that relates to reduction in both survey penalty and litigation and improves patient outcomes.
This session is recommended for anyone who wishes to improve the care process in their facilities, especially medical directors, who by definition of F-Tag 501, are responsible for the clinical processes in their facilities.
