Compliance with recent SOM regulations related to staff competency require nurse leaders to tailor a training and education plan for staff specific to their facility’s resident population. The recent updates require not only sufficient nursing staff, but also that staff have the appropriate competencies and skills sets to provide nursing and related services to assure resident safety and attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident, as determined by resident assessments and individual plans of care. In addition, as of November 28, 2017, facilities must link staffing with the required facility assessment, which considers the number, acuity, and diagnoses of the facility’s resident population. While the task of ensuring competency-based staffing might seem burdensome there is a bright side. Training and education are often associated with increased staff retention, decreased staff turnover, improved patient and resident outcomes, and a more effective and engaged workforce.
This webinar will discuss with key considerations when applying competency-based staffing using the facility assessment. In addition, participants will be given an example of a training and education evaluation plan that will assist in identifying site specific training needs.
Participants will be able to:
- Compare and contrast competency-based educational offerings with knowledge-based in-service offerings
- List three benefits of providing competency-based staff education
- Develop a facility-specific training and education evaluation plan that will help identify educational needs and the resources needed to offer the education
