Overview of the Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly TSP Medications Guide

Date: Oct 12, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Assisting residents with Self-Administration of Medication is an important area of responsibility and liability for RCFE providers. On 09/30/2016, the CDSS-CCLD Advocacy and Technical Support Program (TSP) released a new (and much improved) 38-page version of their Advocacy and Technical Support Medications' Resource Guide, which was originally released in 2000.  The 2016 Advocacy and Technical Support Resource Guide is almost 3 times larger than the previous TSP Medication Resource Guide version, which was originally released in 2000 (and last updated, prior to 2016 version, in 2002).

The primary objective of this webinar is to provide participants with an overview of nine (9) new selected Medication topics contained in the new 2016 Advocacy and Technical Support Medication Resource Guide. The nine topics participants will learn about are:

  • Medication Staff Training Requirements
  • Medical Marijuana Requirements
  • Psychotropic Medications
  • The Medication Plan of Operation
  • Medication Hospice Care Requirements
  • Narcotic Requirements
  • Addressing Behavioral Issues Beyond the Use of Medications
  • Setting Up Medications in Advance.
  • Medications Transferred for Home Visits and Outings
