All meaningful human interaction requires the “mining” of conflicting experiences, viewpoints, and stakeholder position. The reality is that we have been oriented to shy away from conflict. The ability to step into communication understanding that robust interaction results in better outcomes for all. This session provides managers and team members the tools they need to enter into their work with other humans in a manner that results in stronger relationship bonds and outcomes that are for the good of the team and the organization they serve.

In observance of Brain Injury Awareness Month this year the Traumatic Brain Injury Technical Assistance and Resource Center is hosting virtual TBI Tuesdays (1:00 – 4 pm ET) during the months of March and April.

With an overarching focus on equity, each TBI Tuesday session will highlight the work of the TBI State Partnership Program grantee workgroups and their resources for stakeholders, federal partners, and will involve individuals with brain injury. We have structured each TBI Tuesday session to include panel discussions, question and answer sessions, and generous breaks in between.

Each TBI Tuesday session will be live-captioned and ASL-interpreted. If you require additional accommodations to participate or if you have any questions about the sessions, please do not hesitate to contact tbitarc@hsri.org.

CMS has finalized some significant changes to the hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) that every hospital should know, including critical access hospitals. It was 393 pages long and combined three laws into one. This includes changes to nursing, medical records, infection control, QAPI, patient rights, H&Ps, and restraint and seclusion.  Effective date was November 29, 2019.  However Critical Access Hospitals have until end of March 2021 to implement a QAPI program since their QAPI requirements were completely written.

It will also require all hospitals to have an antibiotic stewardship program and what the program should include. The CDC revised the core elements in November of 2019. Also a great part of this document included things that CMS has found to be problematic in hospitals that are already a requirement in the hospital CoPs. CMS also clarified a number of existing requirements and a number of federal regulations that are already final which makes this webinar an excellent resource.

This 2-hour workshop provides practical tools for coping with the uniquely stressful demands of the COVID pandemic. Dr Kerzin will engage participants in four elements of healing – Resilience, Compassion, Mindfulness and Meditation – in this live Zoom event designed especially for frontline healthcare workers.
