March 2017 Excerpt

It's time for our Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative 2 to begin!
Use the information provided in the Handbook to prepare your team, select learning modules, and plan QAPI projects.
First webinar series begins in April
The Collaborative's first three webinars will focus on TeamSTEPPS—a program designed to improve communication and teamwork that also promotes residents' safety and positively impacts staff stability.
We recommend that you register for all three webinars to ensure that you receive the session materials and access to recordings:
1. Collaborative Kick Off and Introduction to Team Communication Tools
April 4, 2017
10:00am PT / 11:00am MT
2. Team Communication Assessment and Readiness for TeamSTEPPS

3. TeamSTEPPS Communication Module
April 20, 2017
10:00am PT / 11:00am MT
The webinars will be followed by self-study activities and regional peer-to-peer sharing events. (Dates and locations to be announced in next month's Collaborative Update.)
