AMDA's 2019 Annual Conference

TH14 - Essential Medical Direction

Mar 7, 2019 1:30pm ‐ Mar 7, 2019 5:00pm


Designed for new medical directors or those aspiring to be, this session will provide participants with an interactive, supported learning session on Nursing Home 101. This includes, the Survey, Minimum Data Set (MDS), care plan, policy and procedures and complex state and federal regulations. The emphasis is on practical skill building with mentoring from seasoned medical directors from a variety of care settings. The role of the medical director in quality assurance and performance improvement (QAPI), infection control, risk management, and in facility leadership will be addressed. The session will require hands on activities, allowing application of new skills and will hopefully inspire participants to seek out medical director posts and further certification.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify state and federal long-term care regulations governing clinical care and find regulations on various topics. 
  • Read a survey report and develop a plan of correction to address deficiencies.
  • Develop an interdisciplinary care plan.
  • Review and update a policy/procedure.
