OASIS data collection continues to evolve! This workshop provides instruction on the significant changes implemented with OASIS-D January 1, 2019 based on the most current CMS guidance available. This effective, up-to-the-minute education is targeted for field data collectors, their supervisors, OASIS educators and reviewers, quality improvement staff, and those preparing for the COS-C Exam.

Through guided, expert instruction, and participation in problem-solving discussions and application scenarios, achieve mastery of the OASIS items, conventions, and the latest data collection rules.
The workshop educational objectives include:
- Selecting OASIS responses that accurately represent clinical assessment findings
- Providing accurate data for quality measurement and reimbursement
