Many of you have been patiently waiting, and it’s finally ready—the CDI Week poster is available for download on the ACDIS site.

Our designer’s interpretation of the theme—“ICD-10: Preparing for tomorrow today”—is right on the money. The image is one of a stop watch with the months between now and October 2014 set around the circle, as the numbers would be on a clock. You can almost hear it ticking. Visit the CDI Week toolkit to download the poster.

You’ll also find a CDI Week case study by Sherri A. Clark, BSN, RN-BC, CCDS, CDI specialist at The University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, which describes how her facility went "back to school" to prepare for ICD-10.

After you download the poster and case study, check out the Week’s Activities page for ideas about things to do to engage your clinical staff in CDI education. There’s a great activity called “Two Truths and a Lie.” It takes a little advance planning but it’s a fun way to learn some interesting facts about your CDI teammates and clinical partners. Or download the sample CDI-Physician Engagement wedding skit and get some volunteers to perform it for the team.

Don’t forget to send in photos and success stories to ACDIS Associate Director Melissa Varnavas. She’ll share them on the blog and choose a few for the CDI Week special section. Who knows, your great idea might expand horizons and opportunities for a program across town or thousands of miles away and it might even earn you a prize like a book or complimentary audio conference.
