Overcome common hurdles and improve interdepartmental collaboration

If Collaboration isn’t on the tip of your staff’s tongue, it should be. On Wednesday, April 11, 12-3pm, ET, industry experts and seasoned long-term care providers Liz Barlow, BSN, RN, CRRN, RAC-CT, DNS-CT and Renee Kinder, MS, CCC-SLP, RAC-C invite your nursing and therapy staff to participate in a virtual, interactive training workshop that will review how to overcome common hurdles that can make interdepartmental collaboration challenging.

With the upcoming proposed reform to the prospective payment system (PPS), aligning resident documentation across multiple disciplines will drive reimbursement more than ever. Promoting collaboration between your facility’s nursing and therapy departments is not enough; each facility must have specific policies, procedures, and effective communication strategies in place to avoid an audit and improve resident-centered care.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply communication strategies to achieve collaboration between therapy and nursing teams for resident-centered care
  • Clarify methods for promoting consistent and quality documentation practices across the interdisciplinary team
  • Explain why collaboration between therapy and nursing teams is imperative with the advent of multiple quality reporting measures (i.e., new QMs through the Five-Star Quality Rating System, the Quality Reporting Program, and the Value-Based Purchasing program) and why functional outcomes and measures are vital to the success of a facility
