November 07, 2007

Hagerstown Community College Center for Continuing Education will hold a seminar on restraint coding and team building for long-term care providers on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 8 a.m. at the HCC Valley Mall Training Center.

The seminar will be taught by Linda Taylor, RN, MSN, a nurse surveyor with the Office of Health Care Quality.

The focused session combines two topics - restraint coding and team dynamics.

Objectives of the course include defining restraint and describing the federal regulatory requirements for restraint use in long-term care; discussing the relevance of the QM/QI reports regarding restraints; explaining the MDS coding guidelines and applying them to clinical scenarios; and summarizing the care process for assessment, usage and documentation of restraints.

Team-building discussions will include listing the four stages of a team, developing effective strategies for communicating with various personality types and a team-building activity.

Cost for health professionals is $45.
