Share |


June 19-20, 2018 - St. Peters

August 7-8, 2018 - Columbia

October 16-17, 2018 - Springfield




This workshop will look at the RAI process from beginning to end.  The MDS is used for both a clinical assessment and a financial assessment and this workshop will discuss the rules on scheduling these assessments and meeting the requirements individually and combined.  Item-by-item coding will be reviewed.  From coding the MDS, we will then look at the CAA to care plan process.  


Who Should Attend

This workshop is for individuals in long-term care who coordinate and/or code the MDS.  Typically, this is an RN or LPN with the title of MDS Coordinator or Care Plan Coordinator.  This is also for the DON or ADM who needs a better understanding of the complexity of the RAI process.

2.  Describe the required forms and schedule completion of the
