Webinar Recording

Program Summary   

On October 4, 2016, CMS released the Final Rule of the Reform of Requirements for Long-Term Care (LTC) Facilities. This is the first major update to the Conditions of Participation (CoP) for LTC since 1991.  Because of the size and scope of the comprehensive update; it’s also been dubbed the LTC “Mega Rule”.  This session will review pharmacy services information provided in Appendix PP of the State Operations Manual (SOM) Interpretive Guidelines (IG) to the Mega Rule.  Providing hospice organizations a basic understanding of LTC facility regulations will allow for stronger collaboration between these two centers of patient care.

Program Goals:

  • Describe aspects of the LTC Requirements of Participation (RoP) related to caring for hospice patients who reside in LTC facilities
  • Identify key pharmacy services components of the LTC RoP
  • Review effects of LTC RoP on person-centered care
