Feeling QAPI? Here's where you need to be
A four-part series of webinars delving into QAPI mandates kicks off at 1 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Wednesday. "New QAPI requirements: designing, implementing and sustaining excellence" is the title of the series, which also will take place April 10, 17 and 23. Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) standards will soon be the gold standard by which nursing homes are judged. These LeadingAge-sponsored webcasts will help you figure out how to design, build and maintain a program that state surveyors will find acceptable. CE credit will be available for the series, which is offered to members, as well as non-members of LeadingAge.
The program is targeted at administrators, directors of nursing and other staff members at nursing facilities. Content also will be suitable for assisted living and residential care providers. The presenter will be Demi Haffenreffer, RN, MBA, a long-term care consultant and the president of Haffenreffer and Associates.
The weekly line-up is as follows:
- April 3: Part I – Design: The CMS Elements
- April 10: Part II – Implementation: The CMS Elements in Depth
- April 17: QAPI in Action: Utilizing QAPI Principles for Fall Prevention
