OASIS data collection has been part of the home health world for more than 10 years. Issues of comfort level, training and competence have been raised within the industry causing some agencies to question if nursing should do all of the assessments. CMS response to these concerns indicates that the tool will remain discipline neutral and that therapists “can respond to all existing, new and revised items in the OASIS C dataset”.
Although this sounds good, agencies and therapists have struggled to ensure consistent data collection while balancing scope of practice concerns. Training options specifically geared to therapy staff have been limited – until now.
Kornetti & Krafft Health Care Solutions is excited to unveil a training session on OASIS for therapists taught by a nationally known therapist! No personal opinions here - only solid CMS sources will be used to prepare therapists for full participation in OASIS data collection. Specific attention will be paid to the most challenging areas of medication management, assessment of what are thought to be “nursing” issues and the anxiety of the new OASIS C tool.
This session is for therapists at all skill and comfort levels with OASIS data collection AND for both supervisory and review staff that work with therapists on OASIS in the agency to ensure everyone is on the same page. This session welcomes and encourages nurses to attend as well to increase our interdisciplinary care delivery potential.
1. Understand how to conduct or review an assessment and select responses for OASIS data items that accurately describes the patient’s characteristics.
2. Incorporate OASIS principles into therapy care planning and documentation regardless of who completed the form itself to ensure positive outcomes.
3. Explore how to document the patient’s condition, abilities and complicating factors efficiently and effectively.
4. Examine the specific concerns therapists have with OASIS data collection and establish strategies for managing these key issues.
