Date:
On-demand
Location: Webinar
Time:
Cost: see brochure
Content:: This four-module course is designed to improve person-centered care for post-acute care (short stay) residents under the PDPM payment system.  Since the PDPM model was a wholesale shift in payment and delivery, initial training mechanisms focused on the new system components. Now that those immediate change needs have been adopted, education and training on best practices for implementing person-centered care should be reviewed to fully adopt CMS’s vision for the PDPM model. This course will define person-centered care and show how it is a key feature in PDPM and when implemented can improve care practices that lead to better patient outcomes.
