MANAGING ACUTE PAIN: SAFE USE OF OPIOIDS
Linda Vanni, Professional Pain Education & Consulting LLC
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Due to the opioid crisis, the treatment of acute pain has changed drastically in
the last few years. The use of multi-modal therapies for acute pain management
is now a standard of care. With legislative and regulatory changes occurring
rapidly, it is essential to stay current to the changes in controlled substance
prescribing. This session will explore safe opioid prescribing within the framework
of the opioid crisis, the alternatives to opioids for acute pain and the legislative/
regulatory issues related to the treatment of acute pain.

GREMLINS IN YOUR FINANCIALS: PREPARING FOR MEDICARE AUDITS
Margaret Chamberlain, Rolf Law
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Medicare contracts with multiple entities to oversee the payments made to providers for Medicare beneficiaries. Each entity has a different purpose. This session will review the various auditors, their purpose, actions the facility needs
to take to respond to audit requests and avoid loss of Medicare payments or other
action.

CRACKING THE PDPM CODE
Pat Anderson, HCAM
O CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

On October 1, 2019 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will
implement a new payment model for Medicare Part A inpatient days of care.
This is a major change in reimbursement for Medicare since the beginning of
the Resource Utilization Group (RUGs) based system implemented in 1998.
This new model the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) focuses on patient
characteristics and overall care needs as determinants of the payment structure.
The ICD 10 coding becomes an important aspect in PDPM regarding what you get
paid. This session will provide information on PDPM payment structure ICD 10 and
other operational changes need to navigate the new payment model.

PHASE 3 ROP: KEYS TO SUCCESS
Margaret Chamberlain, Rolf Law

blocks and best practices based on today’s earlier presentations. We will cover
workforce challenges, PDPM implementation, and reimbursement challenges and
audits. Participants and moderators will dive into “real life” scenarios, road blocks,

that will promote optimal care of residents and facility operations.

WEED, SEX & LEAVE
DeAndre Harris, Kaitlin Sheets, & Brianna Richardson, Warner Norcross + Judd
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Legal developments surrounding the workplace have left employers with more
questions than answers these past few years. What does the new recreational
marijuana law and Paid Medical Leave Act mean for employers in Michigan? What
impact, if any, has the #MeToo movement had on harassment and discrimination
in the workplace? In this session, we will discuss these issues and help employers
remain compliant in today’s ever-changing workforce.

ONE WORD: COLLECTIONS
Margaret Chamberlain, Rolf Law
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Making sure your facility receives payment for services provided is a daily
challenge for nursing facilities. Services are paid for by various insurance and
government programs along with the resident themselves. Each payer has
different requirements for your facility to get paid – from the resident to Medicare
to Medicaid and managed care health plans. This session will look at the various
approaches to getting paid from these payer’s and what to do if they are not
responsive to your payment requests.

DEMYSTIFYING ADVANCE CARE PLANNING
Margaret Chamberlain, Rolf Law
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Advance Directives, Guardianships, Conservatorships, Oh My! What direction to
go and what do each of these entail? And more importantly, how do they affect
the Advance Care Planning Process to carry out an individual’s wishes for care?
Margaret Chamberlain will share insights and guidance on legal authority for
decision making along with implementing Advance Care Planning.

WORKFORCE SECRETS REVEALED
Cathy Sunlin, HCAM/MCAL
CE: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

Workforce is a challenging topic in today’s environment and even more so in
rural areas. Other industries offer increasing compensation and benefits for
positions with far less responsibility and stress. How do you compete to meet
the increasing needs for front line staff? Learn how the changes in our industry
may affect recruitment, share best practice, and discuss tools and approaches to
improve recruitment and retention.
