This four-module course is designed to improve person-centered care for post-acute care (short stay) residents under the PDPM payment system. Since the PDPM model was a wholesale shift in payment and delivery, initial training mechanisms focused on the new system components. Now that those immediate change needs have been adopted, education and training on best practices for implementing person-centered care should be reviewed to fully adopt CMS’s vision for the PDPM model. This course will define person-centered care and show how it is a key feature in PDPM and when implemented can improve care practices that lead to better patient outcomes.
Designed to be appropriate for all facility staff, the first three modules can be done as a team or individuals. The final module consists of role-specific course content for either administrators, clinical professionals (Nursing/Rehab therapies), Nursing Assistants, or other essential facility staff. The presentation modules and accompanying fact sheets, and either team exercise or case studies, are designed to promote team application of the concepts into their clinical practice and to elevate person-centered care throughout the organization.
PDPM was implemented to focus payment for rehabilitative episodes of care on individual needs and preferences to implement more person-centered care delivery. Since the PDPM model was a wholesale shift in payment and delivery, initial training mechanisms focused on the new system components. Now that those payment components have been adopted, education and training on best-practices for implementing person-centered care should be reviewed to fully adopt CMS’s vision for the PDPM model.
