WEBINAR – Conducting Mock Surveys to Assess Survey Readiness
Feb 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/conducting-mock-surveys-to-assess-survey-readiness

Performing regular, in-house mock surveys is crucial to being compliant and prepared for an actual survey. It’s important to do a survey the same way a surveyor does to ensure readiness and compliance. Agencies often review fragmented pieces of survey items but miss the big picture – or don’t know how to conduct a thorough mock survey.

Don’t put your agency at risk for condition-level deficiencies and sanctions. Join this webinar to learn a simple approach to conducting a survey on each area, including home visits, clinical records, and your emergency preparedness plan. QAPI examples will be included to help you improve vulnerable areas. Attending this webinar will ensure a thorough understanding of how to conduct mock surveys for continued survey readiness.

Continuing Education:   Attendance verification for CE credits upon request

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Perform a thorough, objective mock survey – just like a surveyor
  • What to look for in each area
  • Determine what is vulnerable to standard, condition level, or immediate jeopardy
  • Using CoPs’ interpretive guidelines
  • How to use QAPI to improve and monitor vulnerabilities
  • Action plans for continued survey readiness
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Chart of items to review during a mock survey
    • QAPI quality indicator examples and samples

WEBINAR – New Volunteer Manager Series: Establishing Priorities When Volunteer Managers Wear Multiple Hats
Feb 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/new-volunteer-manager-series-establishing-priorities-when-volunteer-managers-wear-multiple-hats

It is not uncommon for volunteer managers to also be social workers, bereavement coordinators, or have other roles – especially in smaller programs. Volunteer programs contribute greatly to the patient/family experience and satisfaction scores and must comply with regulatory requirements.

While volunteer services can never be an afterthought, limited resources make it imperative that volunteer managers are efficient and effective with their time. Volunteer managers must learn to prioritize, be organized, and explore how to utilize volunteers in key positions. This timely webinar will cover these topics and focus on survival skills for volunteer managers who wear multiple hats.
