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 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!
