The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), through the Nursing Facility Rates and Policy (NFRP) Division and the State Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) Initiative, is seeking proposals from qualified Minnesota Medicaid-Certified Nursing Facilities that are interested in implementing an online Dementia Care Staff Training Program.
The HCI-CARES program offers online dementia-care training modules covering a variety of topics from dementia basics to end-of-life care. This training package includes dementia basics and dementia-related behavior training for facility staff, as well Dementia Specialist credentialing for up to 5 staff members per facility. Optional monthly webinars will be offered for educators and administrators to provide strategies to improve dementia care for residents. All training and consultation will be provided by HealthCare Interactive (HCI), a nationally recognized leader in Alzheimer’s and dementia-care online training.
An informational webinar will be held on Wednesday April 14th, at 2 p.m.
