Technical Assistance and In-Service Education

Members identified multiple areas of need with a focus on infection control and antibiotic stewardship. I have developed education in the following topics to begin to develop a ‘menu’ of offerings for direct care providers. These can be tailored to be for clinical or non-clinical staff and leadership if needed.

  • Pain Management, Assessment and Measure Interpretation for SNF (1.5 hr./Clinical Staff)
  • VBP/Readmission Reduction Strategies (1 hr./Clinical/Management/Leadership)
  • Resident Centered Approaches to Care and Care Planning (1 hr./Clinical/Non-Clinical
