PANAC host – Speaker – Teresa Toth, Clinical Consultant, Affinity Health Services
For those who are new to the MDS Assessment process or who do not actively participate in the Assessment process on a day-to-day basis, this is the perfect opportunity to obtain a stronger understanding of the entire process. Because the data in the MDS impacts so many aspects of the LTC facility, it is important for all staff to have an understanding of how this instrument impacts the functioning of the facility. Participants will be exposed to the financial, quality measures and survey related aspects of the assessment tool.
