The looming November 28 deadline is fast approaching and with all of the regulation changes, there is one that impacts staff logistics more than any other, from preadmission to comprehensive care planning – Baseline care planning. Baseline care planning seems simple, but simple mistakes can easily become low hanging fruit for surveyors to pick for citations. To help you avoid those mistakes, AADNS is offering this 60-minute webinar, where you will gain valuable strategies and planning tips needed to be ready for compliance with the entire 483.21 comprehensive person-centered care planning regulation. We will also explain how care planning overlaps with residents’ rights, professional standards, and resident safety. Get the need-to-know information on baseline care planning, learn how it can fit into your workflow, and how it can bump up your resident satisfaction in person-centered care planning.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn the five “must haves” that are required in baseline care planning
  • Find out how to implement three strategies to enhance current care plan development and workflow to meet the baseline care plan requirements
  • Discover the elements that link resident rights and facility responsibilities to planning and implementing care and services

The Key to Competency-Based Approach to Staffing


Recorded webinars are complimentary for AADNS members. The cost for non-members is $59. (Learn more about membership)

Continuing Education: This webinar is eligible for 1.0 CE hour
Recording Date: March 1, 2017
Speaker: Amy Stewart, RN, RAC-MT, DNS-CT, QCP- MT

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
