The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be hosting a 2-day Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) in-person ‘Train the Trainer’ event for providers on July 31 and August 1, 2018, at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, 200 International Drive, Baltimore, MD 21202. This event will be open to all SNF providers, associations, and organizations.

Topics will include information on new and changed items, including changes associated with Section M (Pressure Ulcer/Injury), the introduction of Section N (the Drug Regimen Review Measure), Section O (including updates to guidance on Chemotherapy and Ventilator Guidance), and Section GG (Functional Mobility).
