Reframing Rehabilitation & Therapeutic Support
This webinar event is the third in a 3-part series entitled Person-Directed Clinical Practices – A QAPI Strategy. A common misconception is that person-directed practices and short-term post-acute care don’t mix. This session will explore how to bridge the perceived gap between culture change ideals and the medically-driven environment of the post-acute care setting, so that everyone wins.
Many organizations have a habit of compartmentalizing quality improvement efforts. Clinical care is often addressed in a vacuum, distinct from practices that support person-directed care. Likewise, federally-mandated performance improvement initiatives, like QAPI, are often seen as separate from other internal efforts to improve the quality of care. By bridging the gaps and consolidating strategies, organizations find that the sum is greater than its parts. This 3-part webinar series will highlight how implementing person-directed care actually strengthens and supports efforts to improve aspects of clinical care, and in turn, alignment with QAPI guidelines. Participants will learn how to work smarter, not harder by creating a fully integrated quality improvement strategy that honors quality of life and overall well-being for all involved in the care relationship.
