Trauma Informed Care: What Is It and Is My Facility Prepared?
October 21, 2019
Mass Senior Care Office, Waltham
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
(Registration begins at 8:30 am)  

Program Description:
Trauma-informed care is a Phase 3 requirement set forth in the CMS Requirements of Participation which becomes effective November 28, 2019. Adverse life events–including adverse childhood events (ACEs)–can affect us throughout our lifespan.  As the number of these events increases, so does the risk for negative health and diminished well-being.  For these individuals, the incorporation of trauma-informed approaches is an essential part of person-centered care.  

This workshop will provide an overview of the regulatory requirements related to trauma informed care and provide tools to assist facilities in meeting these requirements as well as the needs of their residents.  

At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will:      
•Understand the origin and scope of F699 (effective 11/28/2019).      
•Define and understand the interdependency of F699 and associated F-tags.      
•Understand the prominence of the 6 associated F-tags in the new state survey process.      
•Understand how to use the facility assessment tool associated with F699 to gain compliance.      
•Gain competency in developing a facility plan to monitor, maintain and demonstrate practices during survey periods.
