Save the Date! Long-Term Living Webinar
The world changes pretty fast these days. No matter what industry you’re in, it can be hard to stay on top of fluctuating trends and shifting policies. But at Crossroads, we take standards seriously.
On Tuesday, October 29, 2013, tune in at 1 p.m. to learn from Crossroads Hospice President Perry Farmer,who is teaming up with Long-Term Living Magazine to present a FREE webinar titled: “The National Quality Forum – What Performance Measures Mean for Hospice & Long-Term Care.”
The National Quality Forum is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, public service organization committed to improving the nation’s healthcare through the use of standardized healthcare performance measures.
This webinar will educate long-term care providers on the accepted measures of the National Quality Forum, the reporting of those measures by hospice, and how it can affect hospice care residents. Implications of performance measures can drastically affect delivery of care, and long-term care facilities may face scrutiny from inspectors over deficiencies.
What you will learn:
1. Discuss what the National Quality Forum is and what measures it has passed.
2. Assess structural measures of quality for hospice.
3. Describe pain reporting and implications for care of residents in long-term care.
Perry Farmer is president, and an original founder, of Crossroads Hospice. Driven by creativity and enthusiasm, Farmer started his career in healthcare in 1989. Believing in learning from the ground up, Farmer began as a nurse’s aide and worked through each department in the nursing home, eventually becoming administrator.
In 1995, Farmer and his family started Crossroads Hospice. Learning from his long-term care background, their program has changed expectations of hospice care in long-term care facilities in each of the communities they serve.
