Before We Begin

This module has been created to educate health care providers about the Palliative Performance Scale.

There are a number of questions in this first version of the module to assist Lee Ann Fox RN, BScN, CON(C), CHPCN(C), graduate student University of Victoria, in her research to understand the needs of providers in these area.

This module will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Objectives

After completing this module you will be able to:

explain the components of the Palliative Performance Scale (PPS)

apply the PPS to a variety of clinical examples

describe the utility and risks of using a communication tool like the PPS

Palliative Care

The sunflower is the international symbol of hospice care. Hospice is not a place but a philosophy of care and may be more familiar to you as palliative care.

The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association defines Hospice Palliative Care as “care that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying.”[1]





The Palliative Performance Scale #vegas #hotels

The Palliative Performance Scale

The Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) is a valid, reliable functional assessment tool developed by Victoria Hospice that is based on the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS ) [3] and is incorporated into the collaborative care plans in the Palliative Care Integration Project that began in Kingston. This tool provides a framework for measuring progressive decline in palliative patients.

In the PPS[4]. physical performance is measured in 10% decremental levels from fully ambulatory and healthy (100%) to death (0%). These levels are further differentiated by five observable parameters:

the degree of ambulation

ability to do activities/extent of disease

ability to do self care

level of consciousness

“Stronger” performance indicators are located on the left, and “softer” ones on the right. In determining the patient’s PPS then, we would first find the level that fits with the patient’s ambulation level. From that we would work across the scale keeping in mind that the leftward indicators have more value than those on the right. We can not choose between levels (e.g. 45%). Simply make your best assessment to determine the PPS.

PPS Stages





Karnofsky Performance Status Scale #banff #springs #hotel

#palliative performance scale

#

The Karnofsky Performance Scale Index allows patients to be classified as to their functional impairment. This can be used to compare effectiveness of different therapies and to assess the prognosis in individual patients. The lower the Karnofsky score, the worse the survival for most serious illnesses.

KARNOFSKY PERFORMANCE STATUS SCALE DEFINITIONS RATING (%) CRITERIA

Able to carry on normal activity and to work; no special care needed.

Normal no complaints; no evidence of disease.

Able to carry on normal activity; minor signs or symptoms of disease.

Normal activity with effort; some signs or symptoms of disease.

Unable to work; able to live at home and care for most personal needs; varying amount of assistance needed.

Cares for self; unable to carry on normal activity or to do active work.

Requires occasional assistance, but is able to care for most of his personal needs.

Requires considerable assistance and frequent medical care.

Unable to care for self; requires equivalent of institutional or hospital care; disease may be progressing rapidly.

Disabled; requires special care and assistance.

Severely disabled; hospital admission is indicated although death not imminent.

Very sick; hospital admission necessary; active supportive treatment necessary.

Moribund; fatal processes progressing rapidly.

Compare Home Health Care Services

Guide to Choosing Home Health Care Agencies

At Home Health Care Service Providers offer a number of options for care within the patient’s home. When looking for the right home health care, there are a number of options to consider before making your final decision. Since the service will be coming to your home, it is important to first locate a group of services that are geographically close to you before analyzing their amenities further. Next, compare the program’s services offered and make sure you choose a company that will provide care specific to your needs. In addition, make sure that the program scores well in performance measures, managing pain and treating symptoms, treating wounds and preventing bed sores, and preventing harm and hospital stays. Discuss your selection with your physician and family before making your final decision.

Ownership Type

The location of the service and who provides care: non-profit, corporate, government, or voluntary.

  • Combination Government Voluntary: This type of ownership provides care services that are run by the government at either the state or local level.
  • Hospital Based Program: Ownership of this type provides programs that are based within a hospital.
  • Local: This type of ownership provides care services that are run locally in your city, and serve a more limited area.
  • Official Health Agency: This type of ownership often provides a variety of services, giving you the ability to work with one company to cover all of your at home health care needs.
  • Rehabilitation Facility Based Program: These programs focus on at home physical rehabilitation.
  • Skilled Nursing Facility Based Program: These programs focus on providing skilled nurses for at home health care.
  • Visiting Nurse Association: These programs provide skilled nurses for at home care.

What to Watch for in Home Health Care Agencies

To ensure you receive the highest quality of care, avoid providers with low scores in performance measures, managing pain and treating symptoms, treating wounds and preventing bed sores, and preventing harm and hospital stays. In addition, avoid trying to work with a company that is located far away from you, as it might be more difficult to find a nurse or other care provider you like that is also willing or able to travel a longer distance.

EMC ESRS basic overview

ESRS stands for EMC Secure Remote Support. The main benefit of ESRS is to enable EMC to deliver proactive customer service by identyfying and addressing potential problems before there is an impact to the customer s business.

So what is ESRS in a nutshell?

  • Two-way remote connection between EMC and customer EMC products that enables:
    • Remote monitoring
    • Remote diagnosis and repair
  • Secure, high-speed, and operates 24 7
  • Included at no charge for supported products with the Enhaced or Premium Support options

OK, that s a nutshell. There a three different approaches for installing/configuring ESRS.

ESRS Configurations

1. ESRS Gateway Client Configuration

ESRS Gateway Client Configuration

Firstly, ESRS Gateway Client configuration. To my knowledge that is the most popular solution, mostly because it s the most universal solution. It s appropiriate for customer environment with a heterogeneous mix of EMC products.

For that approach you will need ESRS Gateway and possibly Policy Manager Server. Let me explain what those are.

The ESRS Gateway server provides a single instance of the ESRS application, and also a single point of failure, coordinating remote connectivity for multiple systems. In this scenario, the customer should be prepared to provide one to two Gateway servers. These can be physical servers or VMware instances running Enterprise Red Hat Linux or Windows, and must be dedicated. No additional applications should be run on the Gateway. A second Gateway server is recommended for high availability.

The optional Policy Manager requires customer-provided server, which can be physical or virtual. This can be any server with network connectivity to ESRS. However, it should not utilize the same physical or virtual server as the ESRS Gateway. This server does not need to be dedicated. You can use this application to:

  • View and change the policy settings for managed EMC systems
  • View and approve pending requests from EMC to access a system
  • View and terminate remote access sessions
  • Check the audit log for recent remote activity

2. ESRS IP Client Configuration

ESRS IP Client Configuration

This configuration is appropriate for customer environments that only include CLARiiON or VNX products. Keep in mind that these products also support the ESRS Gateway configuration.
Here, there is no need for a dedicated Gateway. ESRS is installed directly on the CLARiiON or VNX management station, which should be a dedicated customer-supplied physical or virtual server. This server will host the ESRS software as well as other tools and utilities for CLARiiON and VNX products.

3. ESRS Device Client Configuration

ESRS Device Client Configuration

This configuration is appropriate for Customer environments that only include VNXe, VNX File and Unified, as well as Symmetrix products. In this cenario, there is no need for a dedicated server and ESRS is installed directly on the EMC system. Keep in mind that these products also support the ESRS Gateway configuration. Also note that VNX Block products should also have an ESRS Device Client option in place during the second half of 2013.
Just like the other ESRS configurations, best practice includes the optional Policy Manager application on a non-dedicated server to control remote support permissions and record audit logs for all activity.

Policy Manager settings

The customer has the option to pick from four possible scenarios to manage remote access. This includes three policy manager settings:

  • always allow
  • never allow
  • ask for approval
  • no policy manager

Ask for approval is the most popular option because it allows the customer to receive notification each time EMC requests access for any remote activity. This option enables the customer to receive notification and evaluate the situation before either agreeing to or denying a remote support session.

Replacing the final stage unit # #replacing #the #final #stage #unit/blower #motor


#

Does your A/C-heater blower seem like it’s possessed? Does it quit working for no apparent reason, then come on again just as mysteriously? Does it run only at one speed no matter what the controls say? Does it keep running even when the car is off and the key is out of the ignition? Your problem is most likely a faulty final stage unit.

Based on what I’ve seen here and elsewhere, this is a chronic problem with the E39, but fortunately it’s a relatively cheap and easy fix. There’s a good DIY here. but since questions about it get posted here with regular frequency, I figured it would be a good idea to post one here too. Some of the photos in this post are very large because it’s very helpful to see the details if you have no idea what’s going on here.

BMW calls this thing the “final stage unit;” the parts guys call it a “blower motor resistor.” I’m not sure what the reason for the different terminology is, but it’s the same part. The PNs have changed a couple of times over the years, but as of the date of this posting, what you want is PN 64 11 6 923 204 and there’s a diagram of the system here. As far as I can tell, the same part is used in all E39 models (but you may want to confirm this). Bavarian Autosport has them for about $70, but they’re unfortunately available a lot of places, including the parts counter of your local dealership (I say “unfortunately” because it’s a reflection of how often this thing fails).

For some reason, dealer service departments are notorious for not being able to recognize this issue, and may charge you for hundreds or thousands of dollars of unnecessary repairs without solving the problem. If you don’t feel confident doing this yourself (i.e. you’re the sort of person who is more likely to take an eye out with a screwdriver than a screw), at least bring them this information. Done properly, this is a 15-minute,

This is what you’re replacing:

The silver part of it is a heat sink. I’m not an electrical engineer, but I believe this thing allows the blower controls to change the speed of the blower by altering the current that passes through it. Inside is a bundle of resistors, and by sending the current through a different combination of leads, it creates the proper current to operate the blower at a desired speed. But resistors generate heat (thus the need for a heat sink), and over time, I suspect the constant heat up-cool down cycle degrades the resistors until they no longer produce the right current, and the controller can no longer send the right signals to the blower. Thus, the blower starts acting strangely despite what the controls are doing.

Now, I’ve read a lot of horror stories about how difficult this replacement can be, but I didn’t find it that way at all. This is an extremely simple operation that took me less than 10 minutes. The hardest part was getting myself into a position where I could get at the faulty FSU.

All you need here is a Phillips screwdriver, a flashlight (the one in your glovebox will work fine) and understanding that you’re working with electrical components, not mechanical ones. That means being mindful of how much force you’re using. Nothing in this operation requires any great effort, so if you find yourself needing force things, you’re doing something wrong.

The FSU is behind the dash in the passenger side footwell. You’ll find it easier to work if you pull out the cover under the glovebox. It’s not secured by anything, so just yank it out. The FSU is behind a fabric covered plastic panel on the left side:

You want to unscrew the screw (red circle), then slide the panel backward (see arrow), not out. It’s also held in place by two metal clips that attach to the frame behind it:

Once you’ve got the panel out, lay on your back and look up at the space you’ve just exposed. The FSU is inside there.

Inside the space, you’ll see a plug with 5 colored wires coming out of it. The FSU is the thing the plug is connected to, so you’ve got to get the plug out. The plug is held in place by two clips on the side, and you need to squeeze the clips to free it.

You may find the plug a bit difficult to get out; if so, just wiggle it back and forth until it comes free. Don’t yank it out–you may break one of the wires loose, in which case you’ve just bought yourself an expensive and embarrassing trip to the dealer.

The FSU is itself held in place by another clip at the bottom. You need to push this clip down at the same time you’re pulling the FSU out.

Again, if you’re doing it right, you should not need to force anything. Once free of the clip, the FSU should slide out easily.

You may find all of this easier if you lay on your back in the footwell to get your bearings, then sit up straight, reach under the dash, and do it “by feel.”

Now, surprise, surprise, the part you’ve just removed won’t resemble the new one exactly, since as I mentioned, the PNs have changed a couple of times:

Hmm, could this be because the original version was defective?

Now just slide the new one in the spot the old one came out of. It should slide into place with a “snap” as the clip engages it.

New FSU in place. Note orientation–it will only go in one way. If you’re having trouble getting it in, you’ve probably got it rotated 90 or 180 degrees out of alignment.

Replace the plug, then slide the panel back in the way it came out. Be sure to get both clips into their respective slots, or it will hang loose. Replace the screw.

If you’ve done everything right, your blower should operate normally now. If it’s not, go back in and check the connections. If everything looks right but it still doesn’t work, you may have other problems.

Thank’s for the instructions, my wife has a 2003 530i with 54K miles and her blower stopped working entirely. Here’s a little story.

The A/C stopped blowing air and I hadn’t gotten the BMW manual for it yet so I took it in to the dealership and I figured it would probably just be a simple electrical relay .
They called my wife back telling her ;

1) $440 to fix the blower,
2) The A/C wasn’t as cold as it should be and they needed to replace the dryer – $790
3) The plastic components (bushings) of her suspension were cracking and they could fail if she hit a pothole – $825
4) Her fuel filter needed to be replaces – $325
5) They recommended a fuel injector cleaning – $350
6) Her tires were feathering and she needed a 4 wheel alignment – $350

I went online and found your instructions on how to replace the blower relay. It took 15 minutes to replace and cost $100 for the part. Everything works fine and all the other items were BS not to mention 2 to 3 times what they should be charging for the services.

For once crime didn’t pay.

Oh yeah I forgot, they charged her $135 to tell her how they were going to rip her off. I ordered the manuals yesterday.

Thanks a million. Saved me a fortune. I hate to think what the stealership would have charged me. Regards UK member.

Thank you. Saved me from replacing the climate control unit unnessarily (Had a similar problem on my E36 M3 that was the unit). After reading your description, I replaced the unit in under 15 mins with no fuss or drama. It really was nice knowing the details without having to go “diving” under the dash in 90 degree weather.

Windows 2003 Performance Monitor

The performance monitor, or system monitor, is a utility used to track a range of processes and give a real time graphical display of the results, on a Windows 2003 system. This tool can be used to assist you with the planning of upgrades, tracking of processes that need to be optimized, monitoring results of tuning and configuration scenarios, and the understanding of a workload and its effect on resource usage to identify bottlenecks.

Bottlenecks can occur on practically any element of the network and may be caused by a malfunctioning resource, the system not having enough resources, a program that dominates a particular resource. In fact, 40% network utilization is considered a bottleneck.

Using perfmon will help to identify these bottlenecks and allow you to take action.

It can be opened by navigating to the performance icon in the administrative tools folder in the control panel, from the start menu or by typing perfmon.msc in the run box.

System Monitor


Adding a counter

Right click anywhere on the graph and choose Add Counter.

The Add Counter box consists of the following options:


  • Computer: The source system of the object. You can choose to select the local computer or another computer on your network – type \\computer_name in the appropriate box.
  • Object: The subsystem of interest. This refers to the virtual part of the computer that you want to monitor. Memory, Processor or Network Interface, for example.
  • Counter: The aspect of performance of interest. This refers to what parts of the object you want to monitor – they differ depending on the object.
  • Instance: The specific object to be measured when multiple objects of the same type exist on a single system. For example, if you go to the Process performance object, the instances list will display all the active processes on the specified computer.

System monitor properties

Right click anywhere on the graph and choose Properties. This brings up the System Monitor Properties window that will allow you to customize the appearance and settings. You can change the view to graph, report or histogram style, the monitoring time interval and the colour of the counter lines, amongst others.

Using the monitor for network related performance.

The performance monitor can be a great tool to help with investigating the performance of your network. You are able to monitor things such as the Network Interface, TCP, UDP packet flow, terminal services sessions, and ICMP, amongst others. You can then compare the collected data and keep it as a record or use it for problem analysis.

In my example I have chosen to use the Network Interface as the performance object.
The following counters were added:
Current Bandwidth – to display the amount of bandwidth the network interface has.
Packets/Sec – to display the amount of packets transferred per second.
Bytes Total/Sec – to display the total amount of bytes per second.

The image below displays a graph of network activity that took place within the space of five minutes. The purple line represents the number of packets per second, the yellow line represents the total bytes per second and the light green line shows how much bandwidth is available.

To simulate this activity I navigated to a share on another computer on the network and browsed through the folders.

With the use of logs you are able to capture data that you can analyze later. Logged counter data information can be exported to spreadsheets and databases for future review and reporting. Alerts allow you to set an action that will be performed when specified counters reach a given value. These actions include sending a network message, executing a batch file, recording an item in the application log of the event viewer, and to start logging performance data.

You can use Alerts to send out warnings when disk space is running low or when network or level of CPU utilization poses a risk.

Logs

There are two types of logging features:


  • Counter Logs: are used to record the measurements of specific counters
  • Trace Logs: are used to record memory and resource events.

The above image displays the counter log window that allows you to specify which counters should be monitored. The schedule permits you to set the start and stop time of logging. Go to the Log Files tab if you want to customize the name, size and location of the log file.

The above displays the trace log window which allows you to change what events will be logged by the system provider. Click ‘Provider Status’ to bring up a window that will show what system trace log providers and available and their current status. If you wish to add non system providers then select that option and press Add. You can run the this process as a different user, type the username in the Run As box and press the Set Password box to enter the password of the user.

Keep in mind that the more events you choose to log the more space will be required, especially if you choose page faults.

Alerts

Right click anywhere on the white screen and choose “New Alert Setting” to bring up the properties window for a new alert. In my example I have set it to monitor the packets received errors and if they exceed three then an alert will be triggered. The schedule tab gives you the option to set the start of stop times of the scan.

Apart from bottlenecks slowing down the entire system, they do not allow you to take full advantage of your network infrastructure. Using the performance monitor on your Windows Server will help you identify where the problem is coming from. If this tool is used with correct configuration and planning to suit your network environment then the administrator can benefit from being able to tackle problems in less time, therefore making the situation more efficient.

  • Advice for the Multistate Performance Test – ABA for Law Students #multistate


    #

    Recent law grads sit down next week to take the bar exam, and nearly every state uses a Multistate Performance Test or two. It’s the only part of the bar where an applicant doesn’t regurgitate memorized information – rather, the MPT already contains all the law you need to know. In other words, it’s free points on the bar!

    Here are some suggestions to help you get as many of those points as you can.

    Preparation

    Many bar studiers skip MPT prep to make more time to study the black-letter law they’ll need for the multiple-choice and essay questions. But it’s a mistake to skip the MPT!

    The content of an MPT is not terribly difficult, but the timeframe is. You have only 90 minutes to complete an MPT, and to tell the truth, that’s not enough time. Practice MPTs before the big day so you have a handle on the timing and the rhythm of the assignment.

    Approach

    Spend 45 minutes reading the File and the Library and making an outline of your answer. At the end of those 45 minutes, you should know 1) what the answer is and why, and 2) how long it will take you to write each section of your response.

    There are usually two calls of the question, and they are not always of equal difficulty! If they are equally difficult, you’ll spend half your remaining time (

    22 minutes) on each section. If one is more difficult than the other, though, you need to allocate time accordingly. In particular, if the second issue is more complex, don’t dwell on the first issue! Say what needs to be said, and move on to the second issue.

    You probably won’t have time to write down everything you want to. Part of what you’re being tested on is your ability to prioritize, so as you outline, be aware of what the most important points are, and what the less important points are. If you’re running low on time, leave the less important points off the page.

    Content

    Each source of law is in the Library for a reason. Be sure to mention each one somewhere in your analysis. Most MPTs begin with a statute or ordinance or other rule-based law, and there are two or three cases that give examples of how those rules are applied in similar situations. Be sure to mention each section of the statute and the name of each case in your answer. (If one of the cases discusses a previous case in great detail, mention the name of that embedded case, too.)

    There will be counterarguments available to the other side, and you should address them. Even (especially!) a persuasive piece of writing needs to deal with counterarguments, so be sure to admit what points the other side can make—then refute them.

    Form

    Follow directions. If you’re told not to include a Statement of Facts, for pity’s sake, don’t. If you’re asked to write for the defendant’s side, do!

    If you are assigned to write a memo, your work product should begin with this:

    To: Partner
    From: Applicant
    Date: July 26, 2016

    Palliative Performance Scale

    • Population: Outpatients with advanced cancer
    • Outcome: Median Survival in days
    • Scroll to the bottom for more detailed information
    • The Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) has been shown to be both valid and useful for a broad range of palliative care patients: those with advanced cancer diagnoses or life-threatening non-cancer diagnoses in clinics, hospitals, or hospices.
    • The PPS scale 1 was developed in 119 palliative care patients at home (73% with PPS rating between 40-70%) and 213 patients admitted to a hospice unit (83% with PPS rating between 20-50% on admission) in Victoria, British Columbia.
    • Prognostic estimates for outpatients with advanced cancer were externally validated in a study 2 of 1,655 adults from an outpatient Oncology Palliative Care Clinic in Toronto, Ontario, Canada between April 2007 and February 2010 (median age of 65 years, 51% female, 91% of patients had died at time of analysis).
    • Discrimination: This risk calculator indicates modest predictive performance (c-statistic=0.63) using the PPS.
    • Calibration: Calibration was not assessed.

    The Palliative Performance Scale

    The Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) is a valid, reliable functional assessment tool developed by Victoria Hospice that is based on the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS ) [3] and is incorporated into the collaborative care plans in the Palliative Care Integration Project that began in Kingston. This tool provides a framework for measuring progressive decline in palliative patients.

    In the PPS[4]. physical performance is measured in 10% decremental levels from fully ambulatory and healthy (100%) to death (0%). These levels are further differentiated by five observable parameters:

    the degree of ambulation

    ability to do activities/extent of disease

    ability to do self care

    level of consciousness

    “Stronger” performance indicators are located on the left, and “softer” ones on the right. In determining the patient’s PPS then, we would first find the level that fits with the patient’s ambulation level. From that we would work across the scale keeping in mind that the leftward indicators have more value than those on the right. We can not choose between levels (e.g. 45%). Simply make your best assessment to determine the PPS.

    What is the difference between a bid bond, a performance bond and a payment bond?

    The three primary bonds that are purchased on construction projects are bid bonds, performance bonds and payment bonds. Over the years, I have spoken to contractors and owners and, in many instances, there is confusion about what each bond covers. This brief article will attempt to explain the differences.

    Example 1: Bid Bond

    ABC School District has put out a Request for Proposals for a new roof on their high school building. Contractors X, Y and Z submit bids to perform the work listed in the RFP. The School District requires each of the contractors to submit a bid bond with their bid. The bid bonds are purchased by the three contractors from sureties. The School District decides to accept Contractor Y s bid. Contractor Y determines that they have underbid the project and decides not to execute the contract and not to perform the work. In this instance, the School District can make a claim against the bid bond due to Contractor Y s failure to abide by its bid. Thus, a bid bond is a type of bond (often required on publc construction projects, but not exclusively) designed to protect the owner in the event that the bidder refuses to enter into a contract after the contract is awarded or the bidder withdraws his bid before the award. A bid bond is an indemnity bond, which will be discussed below.

    Example 2: Performance Bond

    Municipality 123 retains Contractor AB to construct a municipal swimming pool at its recreation center. Contractor AB enters into a written contract and begins performing the work. During the performance of the work, Contractor AB goes out of business leaving the work about 50% finished. Additionally, some of the work that was performed was defective. Contractor AB has provided Municipality 123 with a performance bond. Municipality 123 can assert a claim against Contractor AB s performance bond for the cost to perform the unfinished work and the cost to correct the defective work. Thus, a performance bond protects the owner from the contractor s failure to perform in accordance with the terms of the contract. A performance bond does not provide protection against subcontractor or suppliers who have not been paid. A performance bond is also an indemnity bond.

    Example 3: Payment Bond

    Public Water District QQ has retained Contractor ZZ to install a new water tower. Because the project was over $25,000, Contractor ZZ was required by the Water District to provide a payment bond. Contractor ZZ completed the work, but failed to pay Subcontractor X for its work. Subcontractor X cannot pursue any claim against the Water District. However, Subcontractor X can assert a claim against the payment bond for the amount owed to it for its work on the project. Thus, a payment bond is designed to provide security to subcontractors and materials suppliers to ensure payment for their work, labor and/or materials on the project. A payment bond is also an indemnity bond.

    Indemnity Bonds: As set forth above, bid bonds, performance bonds and payment bonds are indemnity bonds. These bonds are not insurance policies. If a covered claim arises against a commmercial general liability policy, the insurer has a contractual obligation to indemnify and defend the insured (i.e. the party obtaining the policy) and cannot seek repayment from the insured for amounts paid out as a result of a covered claim. If a claim arises and is paid out on a bid bond, performance bond or payment bond, the surety (the party issuing the bond) will look to the contractor to indemnify and defend it. So, if a claim is asserted against Contractor XYZ s performance bond, the surety is going to look to Contractor XYZ to defend the lawsuit and to pay any damages.

    Please let me know if you have any questions concerning the foregoing. Additionally, we would recommend that you consult with your attorney regarding any specific scenarios.

    Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI)

    Changes are coming in nursing home Conditions of Participation as a Medicare provider.

    Currently, nursing homes must have a Quality Assessment and Assurance team to review and ensure standards of care. In order to expand the level and scope of required activities, the Affordable Care Act (Section 6102) requires nursing facilities to also adopt a system to continuously:

    • Identify and correct deficiencies
    • Promote and sustain performance improvement

    This system is called the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Program. This is a comprehensive approach to quality management that is:

    • Data-driven
    • Proactive

    The focus of the nursing home QAPI program is improving:

    • Quality of life for residents
    • Quality of care provided to the residents
    • Quality of services for residents

    Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) “basic training” is an opportunity for your facility to build the foundation and begin implementation of QAPI. In this interactive training, your team:

    • Learns the background to the changing Medicare Condition of Participation requirement
    • Learns how to integrate QAPI into your current QAA process
    • Completes the QAPI Self-Assessment Tool

    “Donna Thorson kindly offered to come to our facility and explain the differences, both obvious and subtle, that the QAPI system will bring to our methods of measuring both clinical and operational outcomes. Her enthusiasm has given our team fantastic motivation to follow the new guidelines, and to stay ahead of the curve. We have already done our evaluation to see what areas we will need to concentrate on. All in all, Donna’s visit and training has encouraged our team to become “fire starters” in the QAPI process”
