Assessment, documentation and interventions for prevention and management of chronic wounds in the PAC/LTC environment is challenging for many reasons including, but not limited to; the population (older and/or more fragile), the regulations, reimbursement changes and clinical knowledge challenges by direct care staff. These reasons and more can make wound management in PAC/LTC demanding for building management, leadership, and clinical and support staff. This program will integrate clinical best practices with regulatory (survey) mandates for wound prevention and care, including coding the MDS, Section-M, which will drive reimbursement under the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) and pressure ulcer prevention from a system’s perspective for compliance with the mandated Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). This information-packed program provides attendees with up-to-date information to assist clinical teams, building management and leadership with tools and direction for creating functional wound prevention and care programs that meets today’s highly regulated environment for PAC/LTC. The program is appropriate for DON/ADON, administrators, treatment nurses, PT/OTs, MDS coordinators and others responsible for leading, supervising, or providing care related to wound prevention and management in the PAC/LTC
Registration for the Wound Workshop is now open.
