This call focuses on effective care transitions between long-term and acute care settings, highlighting transitions that involve residents with dementia. This is critical for residents with dementia, as care transitions can cause heightened anxiety and aggression. Communication should be optimized, as care transitions are high-risk periods for nursing home residents. Additionally, CMS experts share 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.
