During this 60-minute webinar, AAPACN Curriculum Development Specialist, Jessie McGill, RN, BSN, RAC-MT, RAC-MTA, will delineate the changes to the MDS 3.0 QMs, discuss the timeline of the Five-Star freeze, and explain how nurse assessment coordinators and interdisciplinary teams can continue to monitor quality outcomes.

• Recognize how the RAI User’s Manual version 1.18.11 update impacts various MDS 3.0 QMs, effective Oct. 1, 2023
• Identify which QMs are impacted by the Five-Star freeze and when the freeze will be lifted for each measure
• Construct a plan to monitor updated and new QMs during the freeze
