In 2016, the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the final rule to revise requirements that Long Term Care facilities must meet to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Phase 3 regulations must be implemented by November 28, 2019.
The regulations specifically include "raising awareness about the special care needs of trauma survivors, including a targeted effort to support the needs of Holocaust survivors living in the United States. Trauma survivors, including veterans, survivors of large-scale natural and human-caused disasters, Holocaust survivors and survivors of abuse, are among those who may be residents of long-term care facilities. For these individuals, the utilization of trauma-informed approaches is an essential part of person-centered care."
This training will define trauma, review person centered planning including universal precautions, identify the specific needs of older populations (including veterans), outline trauma symptom management, identify ways to work with families, and how to implement trauma informed care in your long term care organization.
Continental breakfast and lunch are included. The training is presented by the Institute of Innovation Education.
