It is important that healthcare professionals review basic training topics annually. This is a great lesson that is intended to be a review of mandatory federal topics. This lesson guides learners of all levels through:
- Person-centered Care (including HIPAA, resident rights)
- Abuse Prevention
- Dementia Care
- Safety (emergency preparedness, hazard procedures, fire safety, chemical safety, workplace violence, preventing musculoskeletal disorders, preventing slips, trips, and falls)
- Infection Prevention/Control (including overview of antibiotic stewardship)
- Risk Management/QAPI
Though intended as a review for employees familiar with long-term care, it can be used as an instructor-led discussion for new employee orientation, alongside a review of facility-specific policies.
