IHCA/INCAL Continuing Education Program Attendance Policy
The Indiana Professional Licensing Board (IPLA) requires that sponsors of Continuing Education programs monitor the attendance of all programs in such a way that verification of attendance throughout the program can be readily assured. To obtain credit for an IHCA/INCAL sponsored Continuing Education program, attendees must successfully participate in and complete the entire program. In-person trainings are monitored by IHCA/INCAL staff or a designated representative and a check-in process.  Webinar trainings are monitored by a minute-by-minute attendance monitoring technology system to ensure compliance with the IPLA requirements. 

The National Association of Long Term Care Administrators / National Continuing Education Review Service (NAB / NCERS) requires the Provider/Sponsor to provide a means of monitoring 
attendance that will ensure that attendees only receive credit for time present at the seminar. At a minimum, this will include monitoring attendance throughout the day for all programs 
exceeding ½ day by recording attendance not only upon initiation and completion of the program but also at least once during the course of the program through a means identified and described by the Provider/Sponsor. 

Note: Registration for webinars closes at 5 pm EST the prior day.

Does your staff understand how QAPI coordinates with QA?  Are your stakeholders engaged in the improvement process?  Does your staff understand how person-centered care drives quality and satisfaction?  Is data driving your decision making around quality or are you still reporting raw numbers and guessing?  Have you provided successful education to your leadership at all levels in the facility on conducting a root cause and analysis? Do your line staff know what to expect during a survey and are they ready? 

This interactive workshop will answer these questions and provide education to assist your facility in truly understanding QAPI and the implementation of the QAPI requirements of participation.  Useful policy samples and tools will also be distributed to all attendees.
