Substantial MDS changes are just months away. CMS has posted the draft MDS Item Sets, but the updated RAI User’s Manual is still pending. However, facilities can still start preparing now. During this 60-minute webinar, AAPACN Curriculum Development Specialist, Jessie McGill, RN, RAC-MT, RAC-MTA, will discuss how to prepare for assessing the new items regarding social determinants of health, care plan considerations, and how these changes are connected to current regulatory requirements.

After participating in this webinar, learners will be able to:

• Recognize the social determinants of health items that will be added to the MDS, effective Oct. 1, 2023
• Identify care planning considerations for the social determinants of health items to meet current regulatory requirements
• Construct a plan for interdisciplinary educational needs to ensure a successful transition to the upcoming MDS changes
