Looking to develop a more comprehensive plan of care while improving MDS 3.0 accuracy? MDS Care Plans: A Person-Centered, Interdisciplinary Approach to Care helps you navigate recent changes to the RAI and includes more than 100 customizable care plan templates. With many updated regulations already in effect, this timely book covers the IMPACT Act, QAPI, person-centered care, and survey changes, as well as the changes resulting from the ICD-10 transition.

Each care plan provides a framework for guiding the review of trigger areas and clarifying a resident’s functional status and related causes of impairments.
