Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) mandated programs are essential to improving the quality of life, quality of care, and services delivered in skilled nursing facilities (SNF)—but developing and implementing a successful and effective program can be challenging. This program outlines a method that turns theory into practical approaches, demonstrating how the committee can direct and monitor ongoing improvements.
During this 90-minute webcast, our expert speaker Carol Marshall, MA, CCC-SLP, will give a brief overview of QAPI and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) updates; help you identify problem areas that might exist at your facility; and explain how to keep your QAPI program active, productive, and compliant. She’ll also share a case study of how one facility's stagnant performance improvement program was changed by employing the strategies presented here.
At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:
·         Create and run an effective QAPI committee meeting
·         Identify provider issues related to QAPI
·         Resolve QAPI issues that are holding the provider back from being compliant
·         Understand how to use the QAPI program on a day-to-day basis
·         Understand how to link performance improvement to resident care, survey assessment, and corporate compliance
