While federal and state regulations require quality assurance performance improvement (QAPI) meetings, which are often led by the administrator or medical director, the full potential of the meetings is often limited by individuals’ contributions to the meetings, interprofessional relationships, and follow-up of identified issues. Interdisciplinary team (IDT) members may struggle with understanding the value of their roles during QAPI meetings and how to better participate in a productive manner. The collaborative relationship among the medical director, administrator, and director of nursing provides the foundation for leading productive and efficient QAPI meetings. In this session, sponsored by the American Board of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (ABPLM), experienced IDT members build upon the previous years’ session to assist the triad of leadership in nursing facilities in their goals of improving QAPI meetings and subsequent care outcomes, resident experience, and the quadruple aim.
