Person Centered Care: Keys to Assuring This Regulatory Requirement


Course Description

Course Description:

In the latest and most significant update to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Rules of Participation in Long-Term Care (LTC), healthcare team members are required to assure person-centered care at every level.  These new LTC Requirements for Participation were released in 2016 with subsequent phase-in dates of November 2017 and November 2019.

 This session will focus on research-based strategies to assure compliance with each regulation, to include assuring person-centered care and preferences, despite the unique complexities of each resident’s clinical scenario.  Participants will learn how key strategies can be effective for each of the updated codes of federal regulation, with examples provided in multiple areas for different team members in their respective departments.   Evidence-based techniques will be shared to address needs from person-centered care plan goals to assuring resident preferences and wishes in care decisions and quality of life.  Case studies and recommendations will be shared to complete the learning experience.
