An effective Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program has an expansive scope to include all service lines within an organization. Overall improvement takes time, persistence and both short-and long-term follow up, in tandem with initiative and leadership at all levels. Success at this multi-faceted task requires good design based on the comprehensive understanding of the essential components required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the institution of well-defined measures, and the understanding of how your program will be evaluated by the Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA).

LeadingAge Iowa (LAI) is excited to have Demi Haffenreffer, RN, MBA, of Haffenreffer & Associates Inc, in Portland, Oregon, share her expertise with our members. Demi has a vast amount of experience in long-term care to include being at the ground level in publishing the Model Program for QAPI for the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care. Demi will provide this one-day workshop to cover essential elements for designing, implementing and sustaining your QAPI program. Activities will include guided assessment of your current program, establishing a number of well-defined key measures, and participating in root cause analysis exercises. This will be a dynamic, high-energy, participatory workshop with a lot of information, discussion, and creative, practical exercises. Participants will take away a number of tools to incorporate into their QAPI program.

Registration for the QAPI: Designing, Implementing and Sustaining Excellence Workshop is now open.
