LTC Information & CPG Implementation Tool Kits
The implementation tool kits walk you through each step of implementing the specific CPG in your facility. The kits include template letters to the care team and family members informing them of your initiative; a letter to the attending physician along with an at-a-glance summary of physician responsibilities; a Task Assignment Grid to select care team members for performance of specific tasks within the CPG, a policies and procedures (P&P) document that list those P&Ps you will need to have in place in order to implement that specific guideline; a one-page check list for training staff on those P&Ps; a list of Quality Indicators for the specific CPG to use in your facility’s QI process; and a laminated Measurement Tool for Clinical Practice
In addition, there are three sets of inservices on CD-ROM, one for practitioners, one for licensed nurses and, one for certified nursing assistants that cover the topic and that discipline’s role with carrying out the steps in the guideline. The inservices come with their own book of slide notes so that anyone can present them. An instructor’s manual and the CPG are also included in the kit. Also included is a CD-ROM with many of the tools available that can be customized. Each kit has other tools specific to the topic as well. Each tool kit is perfect for any facility that wishes to improve its care process and outcomes and is a “must have” for medical directors to demonstrate their compliance with Tag F501!
