During this MLN Connects National Provider Call, CMS subject matter experts will provide updates for the National Partnership and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). Additionally, a nursing home will discuss steps taken to achieve antipsychotic medication reduction in their facility, and Indiana University will present information about evidence-based dementia care training. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
The National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes and QAPI  are partnering on MLN Connects Calls to broaden discussions related to quality of life, quality of care, and safety issues. The National Partnership was developed to improve dementia care in nursing homes through the use of individualized, comprehensive care approaches to reduce the use of unnecessary antipsychotic medications. QAPI standards expand the level and scope of quality activities to ensure that facilities continuously identify and correct quality deficiencies and sustain performance improvement.
