(HI) Shared decision making (SDM) is a collaborative process that allows the patient and provider to make important health care decisions together. It takes into account the best clinical evidence available as well the patient's preferences for care. Patient decision support tools, also known as decision aids, are evidence-based tools used to help patients understand their condition and the preference-sensitive decision that needs to be made.

Implementing SDM into routine clinic processes can be challenging. During this presentation by Megan Bowen, compliance specialist and site visitor with the Oregon Health Authority's Patient Centered Primary Care Home Program, you'll learn about some valuable lessons from the field, how to choose the most appropriate SDM topics for your clinic, how to integrate patient decision support tools and the process of SDM into routine workflows, training resources for providers and staff, and where to get additional resources.

(HI) Person-centered care is a focal point for improving resident outcomes, regulatory compliance and higher QM ratings. The RAI process harnesses resident voice through MDS Sections C, D, F and J, but is often underrated in its positive impact on resident outcomes. The data in these sections are impacted by social services, activities and nurses, but how often do all three disciplines collaborate in coding? The MDS Part 2 session will cover Section C – Accurately coding the gateway questions, determining cognitive status, managing care of residents with dementia; Section D – Capturing and managing mood indicators; Section F – Using resident preferences to create person-focused care plans; Section J – Identifying and managing pain. Presenter: Judi Kulus, MSN, MAT, RN, NHA, RAC-MT, DNS-CT, QCP, vice president of curriculum development, American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination (AANAC).

(HI) Whether you work in a nursing home or hospital, CDI is a communal health care problem.

Hear from Erin Epson, MD, from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), on a unique CDI prevention approach that focuses on bringing together all health care facilities to combat CDI on a community level, rather than just within the four walls of a facility.
