Workshop Description

This 6-hour workshop will detail the numerous responsibilities of the Activities & Social Services departments as mandated in the new requirements. While not much has been said specifically about these two departments, upon close review of the mandates, it is apparent that Activity and Social Service Departments will experience much focus during upcoming surveys. New requirements and/or changes in Residents' Rights, Abuse/Neglect/Exploitation, Quality of Care/Quality of Life, Person-Centered Care, Resident Assessment/Care Planning, Discharge, Dementia Care, Reduction of Antipsychotics/ Psychotropics, Behavioral Health Services, and most importantly, "staff skills and competencies" place both Activities & Social Services in the spotlight. Come and learn as popular instructor Cat Selman provides guidance on systemic facility process and survey focus, as well as compliance recommendations. Cat has a reputation for explaining difficult topics in an easily understood, "common-sense," manner, so we anticipate that the training will be in heavy demand.
