The Foundation for Quality Care has developed a 2-day Train-the-Trainer program for nursing home and assisted living leadership teams to implement OASIS in their facilities. This curriculum provides alternatives to prescribing antipsychotic drugs to adults with dementia by using person-centered approaches to addressing behaviors that may be a communication of unmet needs. Linda Elizaitis, President of CMS Compliance Group, has been selected as part of the program faculty for this program.
New York state facilities in the Northern Metro and New York City regions are encouraged to apply. The session dates are Tuesday, March 10th and Tuesday March 26th. Applications are due by February 23, 2015.
