National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care and QAPI Call: September 15

National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care and QAPI Call: September 15

Register now for an upcoming CMS call on effective care transitions between long term and post-acute care settings, highlighting transitions that involve residents with dementia.  This is critical for residents with dementia, as care transitions can cause heightened anxiety and aggression.

The CMS-hosted call will take place on September 15 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm.  CMS experts will share updates on the progress of the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
