Media Count 8DVDs
Personal Author N/A
Abstract Section 6121 of the Affordable Care Act requires CMS to ensure that nurse aides receive regular training on caring for residents with dementia and on preventing abuse. CMS, supported by a team of instructional designers and subject matter experts, created Hand in Hand, to address the annual requirement for nurse aide training on these important topics. Person-centerd care is an approach to care that focuses on residents as individuals and supports caregives working most closely with them. It involves a continual process of listening, testing new approaches, and changing routines and organizational approaches in an effort to individualize and de-institutionalize the care environment. Person-centered care is the central theme of the Hand in Hand training.
