This call focuses on infection control, highlighting Antibiotic Stewardship and community-wide efforts, including a presentation from a nursing home administrator. Common concerns related to the clash between individualized, person-centered care and the medical model of controlling infections will also be addressed. This is critical for residents with dementia, who often struggle to complete complex tasks and may have issues with continence. Additionally, CMS subject matter experts will share information about the upcoming Infection Control Pilot Project, as well as updates on the progress of the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
