This MLN Connects® National Provider Call will focus on nursing home providers, as well as transitions of care between acute and long-term settings. A physician will share approaches to effectively manage high-risk medications, and a pharmacist will discuss the importance of drug regimen reviews and medication reconciliation. Additionally, CMS subject matter experts will update you on the progress of the National Partnership and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
The National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes and QAPI are partnering on MLN Connects Calls to broaden discussions related to quality of life, quality of care, and safety issues. The National Partnership was developed to improve dementia care in nursing homes through the use of individualized, comprehensive care approaches to reduce the use of unnecessary antipsychotic medications. QAPI standards expand the level and scope of quality activities to ensure that facilities continuously identify and correct quality deficiencies and sustain performance improvement.
