Care Area Assessment Review (CAA) Webinars

New and veteran nursing home staff have indicated they need more opportunity to examine best practices for improving assessments and developing comprehensive care planning that ensures the health and well-being of their residents. This day-long virtual workshop, designed for the entire interdisciplinary team, will provide a comprehensive review for each of the 20 Care Area Assessments (CAAs), which establish the framework for developing, reviewing and revising residents’ comprehensive plans of care.

Participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • The necessary components of a comprehensive assessment
  • What procedures to follow in conducting the assessment
  • The decision making process for when or when not to proceed to care planning
  • Specific protocols to follow in documenting the assessment comprehensively
  • Steps to resident-centered care planning

Examples will be provided for each of the CAAs and attendees will participate in a number of documentation exercises. If you are looking for ways to simplify and individualize the care planning process and develop a functional resident-centered plan that ensures the best possible care for residents in your community, don’t miss this opportunity!

This class will be offered twice in 2024: May 2, 2024 & November 7, 2024, 11:00 - 3:00 pm CT (10-2 MT). Note that the class is offered by LeadingAge Oregon and some communication may be in Pacific Time. Please adjust for your time zone accordingly.
