Dementia care, QAPI the focus of Dec. 1 provider call

Skilled nursing providers will have a rich agenda to soak up Dec. 1 when the MLN Connects National Provider Call features a doctor pointing out how to better manage high-risk medications and a pharmacist discussing drug regimen reviews and medication reconciliation. Experts from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services also will give a progress update on the National Partnership and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI).

The National Partnership is designed to improve dementia care in nursing homes through the use of individualized, comprehensive care approaches to reduce the use of unnecessary antipsychotic medications. QAPI standards promote the expansion of quality activities to correct deficiencies and maintain facilities' performance improvement.

The National Provider Call runs from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Dec. 1. For more on the event or to register, click here.
