Final Rule:  Integrating Phase 2 New Requirements of Participation into Practice (Part 2)

Course Description: This one and half (1.5) hour webinar will focus on a comprehensive review of the Phase 2 requirements of the new Requirements of Participation (RoP). The content focuses on helping nursing facility staff understand the new Requirements of Participation that will be effective on November 28, 2017 and actions required to achieve and maintain compliance with the new rules and incorporating the new requirements into existing continuous quality improvement (CQI) facility quality programs. Self-assessment for analysis of policies and procedures, current facility practices and leadership’s role in accountability for implementation of the new requirements will be emphasized.

For each requirement discussed, assessment recommendations, intervention strategies and education topics will be examined.
