You can’t afford to miss this opportunity to train your next wave of nurse leaders

Nurse participants will be empowered with the tools and resources needed to be successful nursing leaders and will come away with an increased confidence and improved job performance and personal satisfaction.

Boot Camp Agenda Day One

01 Leadership: Empowerment & Delegation
Are you new to the DON role? Do you wonder what kind of a leader you are or even if you are a leader? Are you so busy and overwhelmed that you are neglecting
your home life? Wondering why you gave up that Nurse Manger position for this one? These are very common questions that DONs ask themselves in their first year and even in their 10th year of being a DON. This presentation
walks you through the differences and commonalities of leadership, management and supervision. It also lays the ground work for empowering your staff and allowing
you to find a balance in your life due to delegation. Join us for this presentation and learn how you can make this position manageable and maybe even enjoyable!

02 The Role of the DON: Part 1
Are you confused as to what to do first? What your priorities should be? What is expected of you regarding the new regulations? This presentation will provide
some insight to these and other questions you might have . Come and receive some tools that will assist you in your daily approach to providing quality care for your residents.

03 Resident Dignity & Person Centered Care
The new regulations recognize choice, preference, and the exercising of Resident rights in their care and in their long term world. This is a change in perspective from
the medical model of care that LTC has lived with for many years. Despite rights always being a part of our regulations, the emphasis has shifted and it is time to
look at things with new eyes. This presentation views care from the Resident’s perspective and aligns care with this new way of thinking.

04 Corporate Compliance & Ethics
CMS requires an active Corporate Compliance and Ethics Committee. It should be on your meeting calendar and functional for Phase III regulatory change. Learn how to create the teams, who should participate, what types of things are reviewed and what the regs require.

05 DON Roundtable: Operational Challenges
Do you struggle with operational challenges of finances and turnover and recruitment? Do you feel like these are factors out of the nursing wheelhouse? Learn how to use the language of cost reporting and financial review to YOUR (and your residents!) benefit. Overcome some challenges and implement PIPs for gradual, progressive improvement.

06 Regulations & New Survey Process
Understanding the language of the regulations and the emphasis of the new survey process will improve not only survey outcomes but the way resident and patient care is provided.

QAPI is often treated like a “paper compliance” process and is not given the due diligence and respect it deserves. When used effectively, QAPI provides the team an opportunity to collaboratively improve resident and patient outcomes.

08 Requirements of Participation (ROP)
Have you ever wondered what the Requirements of Participation are and what they actually mean? Is there a difference between requirements of participation and regulations? This session will help make sense of confusing and cumbersome language as we navigate the ROPs.

09 Abuse, Complaints, Plan of Corrections & IDR
Do you struggle with allegation reporting? Completing the investigation? Practical solutions and tips will be provided and then the conversation will be directed toward POCs and IDRs. Save your sanity by having formalized protocols for POCs and IDRs.

Day 2 | March 27, 2019

10 Real Life Management 101
As a DON or nurse leader there always seems to be more to do than time allows for. How can you be an effective leader while still getting the job done without sacrificing a home life. This session will address strategies that attendees can use to be an effective leader while getting the job done with work life balance.

11 Behavior Management
This presentation will take participants through the process of identifying the root cause of problem behaviors in the LTC setting. It will also provide steps to develop a comprehensive interdisciplinary behavior management program in compliance with state/federal guidelines. Staff development and training resources to sustain an effective program will be discussed.

12 Short-term Stay/Rehab Patients vs. LTC Residents
SNFs are experiencing a shift in the demographic population that includes a balance of long-term residents often with advancing dementia, complemented by short term patients admitted for rehabilitation. The service needs and expectations are distinctly different between these two populations and can often be difficult to
manage within the operations. Successful management of service delivery begins with an understanding of wants and needs of these two distinct populations.

13 The Role of the DON: Part 2
The demands of the DON role continue to mushroom in the current skilled nursing climate. More demands and fewer resources can contribute to burnout and decreasing role satisfaction which may contribute to a decline in health and increase in anxiety. For the DON to successfully lead in today’s climate s/he must be able to self-regulate stress with coping mechanisms that contribute to a greater sense of emotional and physical well-being. In this session the Nurse will examine
unconscious tendencies expressed during times of stress and practice self-regulating coping strategies.

14 DON Roundtable: Surrogate Medical Decision Making
End of life decisions are some of the most important decisions a resident can make. It is vital that this confusing area of law is understood so that residents are
given the opportunity to make end of life decisions and that these are carried out. It is also important for facilities to understand who has the authority to make medical
treatment decisions as improper decision making can lead to survey citations as well as civil and criminal consequences. This presentation will cover new law
regarding guardians and DNR’s.

15 Documentation: Sword & Shield
Nurse participants will learn about the risks, pitfalls and strategies for ensuring sufficient documentation. Documentation can help providers improve care for
residents but it can also be used against them with civil, criminal and regulatory repercussions. Real life examples will help nurse participants learn how to tailor their documentation so that it serves its intended purpose without putting them or the facility at risk.

16 Report Overload
Reports galore! Reports from CMS, vendors, EHR’s and internal reports can place the nurse leader at risk for citations and litigations. In this presentation, the nurse
leader will be able to direct what reports should be used and ones that can be used. It’s time to enjoy the information and not run from information!

17 Pain Management
Pain management can make or break a resident’s impression on your nursing department. In this session the participants will obtain the skills to effectively
evaluate their pain management program. Participants will be able to share experiences with the group while learning about the necessary framework. To develop a unique pain management program that is successful and provides improved resident and nurse satisfaction which ultimately can improve public quality reporting.

18 Infection Control/Antimicrobial Stewardship
What’s next for Infection Control? New Infection Preservationist (IP) for minimal of 20 hours a week, Antibiotic Stewardship Program (ASP) outcome measures
and antibiotic time outs too. The participants will be able to sort out these new and “improved” regulations and jump right into action!
