Reducing Readmissions Through Better Transitions
UC Davis, Betty Irene Moore Hall2570 48th Street, Sacramento, CA 95817
CALTCM is pleased to host our 3rd Fall Conference in Northern CA. This year, we have collaborated with the Northern CA Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association (NCCGAPNA) to bring you a series of "best practices" that are designed to help you acheive better CMS 2019 Phase 3 compliance by improving the quality of dementia care of older adults in your nursing home as well as strategizing patient-centered discharge planning and readmission reduction.
The meeting begins with a Keynote by Dr. Terry Hill who will challenge our thinking about "the dynamics of change" in long-term care by asking - How can we do better? Next, in symposium style, we will focus on identifying and improving current shortfalls in the SNF discharge process by examining a series of best practices designed to enable safer discharges from SNF to home. The morning ends with a discussion of person-centered techniques to help reduce and manage behavioral and psychiatric symptoms of dementia. The afternoon starts with two presentations of successful nursing home quality improvement projects! The first is CALTCM SNF 2.0®, now six years of improvement using INTERACT and other proven processes to reduce readmissions. Second is on the impact of CAHF Music and Memory Project, which involved 300 NHs in California implementing personalized music for residents with dementia using a structured QAPI approach. As always, we have our famous CALTCM practical workshops with CALTCM industry experts which builds on the day's presentations: All six presentations will be highlighted in interactive workshops with participants selecting one of the best practices to create their own improvement process action plan. And, finally, as anticipated, we are right behind you, supporting you through the ever changing world of long-term care rules and regulations with an end-of-day discussion forum focused on getting answers to your policy, regulatory, and legislative questions.
We are excited to provide this full day of innovative and practical educational content with time for individuals and teams to work on a best practice for your nursing home. Experts will provide guidance on "how to" so that participants leave with an improvement plan. Once again, we will be in the new, interactive learning environment at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis.  This event offers up to 7.25 continuing education credits, see accreditation page for full details.
