Trainings are offered two ways for your convenience:
Completion of the MDS/RAI is an Interdisciplinary approach and each team members complete participation is vital. The MDS 3.0 serves as an assessment tool necessary to appropriately assess the actual and potential needs of each client that it serves.
The MDS 3.0 enables the facilities to receive proper reimbursements for the services provided. Facilities may not have the time or resources available to appropriately train staff. Individuals such as DONs, ADONs, Social Service Directors, Activity Directors, and Dietary Managers are key players in supporting the MDS 3.0 process. We invite the opportunity to assist your management team in the learning process!
