Phase III of the revised federal regulations for trauma informed care and behavioral health services challenge long-term care communities to ensure they are fully prepared to care for residents with complex psychosocial needs. Beyond differentiating between dementia and psychiatric illness or addictions, the facility staff must have a working knowledge of the interventions and services necessary to achieve quality care for a rapidly changing population. This session offers an overview of the regulatory expectations and insight into staff education and training, assessment and care planning, service development, and therapeutic activity interventions to address a broad range of behavioral health needs. Topics for discussion include a regulatory overview, admission assessments for capacity and PTSD, assessment and care planning, mental health, caring for residents with mental disorders, care and services for substance abuse, and more.
