Improve Your Person-Centered Care for SNF Short-Stay Patients

Webinars; Programs and Resources

AHCA/NCAL offers a four-module webinar to train staff about the delivery of person-centered care under the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM). Person Centered Care in a PDPM World is built to train senior staff about delivering short-stay post-acute person-centered care and position them to then train other facility staff.  

PDPM was implemented to focus payment for rehabilitative episodes of care on individual needs and preferences to implement more person-centered care delivery. Person-centered care is at the core of PDPM and can improve care practices that lead to better patient outcomes.  

The first three modules examine the person-centered care framework, making personal preference determinations and challenges in delivering personalized care to short stay residents. The last module is divided into four separate presentations that can be used to train various staff members including administrators, professional staff, CNAs and other essential staff with content specifically designed to promote team application of the concepts into clinical practice and elevate person-centered care throughout an organization. 

The cost of this program is $150 AHCA members and $300 for non-members. Individuals can register for this course with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords. The course is approved for 4.50 contact hours through the Iowa Board of Nursing. Discounts are available for group/team registrations when registering five or more individuals by following these group registration instructions.
