Nursing homes have completed their new federally required QAPI plans. (QAPI is Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement). Now they need to work on turning the plan into an ongoing and comprehensive program that collects data, analyzes it for trends, and develops improvement projects. The regulations specify the program must cover both quality of care and quality of life/choice issues. This presentation will focus on the important concepts in turning the Plan into the Program, working through discovering and fixing a sample of ongoing issues, including culture change innovations to improve quality of life.
Karen Schoeneman is a former deputy director of the CMS Division of Nursing Homes. As part of her role, she led the development of the QAPI principles and QAPI research and demonstration that led to the current new regulations. She was also the CMS agency lead for quality of life and culture change, and the co-author of the CMS Artifacts of Culture Change tool. Since her retirement from CMS, Karen has done over 70 presentations and workshops on CMS regulatory issues and culture change practices. Karen is also one of the founders of the culture change movement and Pioneer Network.
