CMS recently released new surveyor guidance to assess compliance with F309 and F329 as they relate to residents with dementia and use of antipsychotic drugs. AHCA is pleased to offer a series of six, brief, fast-moving and content-rich webinars to help your nursing center ensure that you are well-prepared for these changes. Webinars will be grounded in a QAPI approach and provide strategies for achieving compliance with the new guidance. Each webinar is 30-minutes and will be available on-demand. The first webinar in the series will be available during the week of July 9. Check Capitol Connections and the Quality Initiative section of the AHCA website for more information about the focus of each webinar in the series to identify those that will be of greatest help for your center.

New this week is:

F309 & Antipsychotics?! Compliance?! QAPI?!: Your Integrated Pathway to Dementia Care.

Part Six: “Quality is Our Business Model” (M.K. Ousley)
Speaker: Stacey Rose, LNHA, MCD, CCC-SLP

Session Description: TQM, CQI, QI, QA&A - if you recognize these you know they reflect several decades of quality programs in long term care.  In fact if you recognize these, then you know that Quality has been the long term care business model for a very long time.  The new guidance at F-309 recognizes the importance of a nursing center's QA&A process and encourages surveyors to examine the systemic approaches used to deliver care and services for a resident with dementia.  This session will validate your current QA&A efforts and support your transition to QAPI with practical tips and useful pointers.

Learning Objectives:
  • Relate current QA&A practices to QAPI principles.  
  • Consider ways to organize your current QA&A work and committees to transition to a QAPI approach
