Needs Statement

Reinforcement of the advanced training provided in the prior modules as well as a conceptual model for integration of the tools provided for the development of CMS Long Term Care Requirements for Providers “Best Practices”.

2. Review CMS Long Term Care Requirements and how to implement “Best Practices” across all levels of CNF healthcare manage-ment and delivery consistent with changes in regulations and guidelines consistent with the 3 phases of CMS implementation.
3. Discuss appropriate use of the education and tools provided in this dementia series to address CNF-specific issues that have led to the creation of the CMP funds.
