Although gerontological APRNs receive advanced education and training to independently assess, diagnose, and treat older adults, few have received formal training on the nuanced care within the post-acute care (PAC) and long-term care (LTC) settings. This full-day pre-conference workshop prepares APRNs who are new to these settings or have an interest in PAC/LTC. Attendees receive education on management of acute and chronic conditions, working with interprofessional teams, CMS regulations, billing and coding, the infrastructure and culture of PAC and LTC, including APRN leadership opportunities. Teaching strategies include lecture, case studies, small group discussions, polling and role playing.

Excellent sessions today. I really enjoyed the last one on documentation/billing/coding. I think this is such an important topic that it should be moved to an earlier time in the day. Also, it would have been nice to have coffee and snacks since we are in this room all day. The dementia session had this, but not this one. Especially since we are paying extra for this class, but it was excellent in content.
