The MDS is a critical nursing facility assessment tool that can directly impact resident quality of care, reimbursement, survey outcomes and your publicly posted quality measures. During this three-day virtual workshop, attendees will take a tour of all MDS sections, including review of the steps for assessment of each section, common coding errors and review of systems and processes to better provide for MDS completion accuracy. The final day of the workshop will include the care area assessment (CAA) process and its relationship to care planning, and an overview of the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM).

This course is 3 days, July 10-12, 2024, from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm CT (10-2 MT) each day. NOTE: This webinar series is provided by LeadingAge Oregon - please be aware that some information sent from Oregon may be listed in PT. Please adjust to your time zone accordingly.
