Webinar: 7 Part Series - RoP Phase 3

Preparing our Providers for the Final Phase!

Requirements of Participation for Skilled Nursing Facilities

The federal regulations for nursing homes are in full force and there is one last phase of implementation which includes a new survey process. Prepare yourselves and your management team by participating in this series of on-line training sessions that provide guidance for implementing the necessary components of Phase 3.

Join us for this information packed series of webinars to gain the knowledge necessary to implement the final phase of the requirements of participation for skilled nursing facilities that go into effect November 28, 2019.

The State Operations Manual, Appendix PP includes the regulations that long-term care providers must follow to participate in Medicare and Medicaid. While compliance is necessary, our residents will receive the best care and services we have to offer if our care teams are educated and have the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to care for those we serve.

This 7 Part Webinar Series will offer education, resources, tools, checklists, and even audits for successful implementation of the new requirements of participation.

Problems, goals, and approaches that take each individual resident’s preferences and needs into account are necessary to provide care and services that are trauma informed and culturally competent.
