What You’ll Learn
Social Workers in SNF’s across the country complete the BIMS, PHQ-9, and Section Q related interviews. They complete the MDS sections related to these interviews and facilitate discharge planning. And they monitor for psychosocial risks and behaviors to care plan appropriately. Do your Social Workers have all the tools they need to address resident needs and identify issues that may affect the facility?

After attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Review interview techniques and resident communication
- Discuss coding of sections C, D, & Q
- Understand care area triggers from sections C, D, & Q
- Document care area assessments from sections C, D, & Q
