From the C&A Classroom: Learning Trends

From the C&A Classroom

Last month, we launched a survey to learn more about the learning preferences, styles, gaps and needs for education that informs your professional practice. Over 85 respondents shared their insights with us. Here are some highlights:

Respondents hold a wide variety of positions in their organizations including serving as nurses, medical staff, quality and regulatory positions, leadership and more. Respondents also primarily come from hospitals mainly with 100 beds or greater.

Top trending topics that respondents indicate they desire to learn more about include:

• Life safety
• Accreditation readiness
• TJC and CMS crosswalks
• TJC scoring methodology
• CMS topics and ideas
• High reliability
• Risk management
• Population health

C&A has looked at a variety of methodologies for providing education including live and recorded webinars, webinars offered on demand, online courses and virtual conferences. The majority of our respondents voiced that live webinars remain their preferred mode of education. In addition, current participants who have been experiencing C&A’s online courses have voiced that the self-paced format is desirable to them. C&A is taking all of this feedback into account as we plan for our education in 2017.

There is still more learning to do meanwhile in 2016!

Navigating the CMS Conditions of Participation

Accreditation requirements are built on the CMS Conditions of Participation – federal requirements that are the foundation for policy and process in healthcare organizations. Enhance your understanding of the interrelatedness between regulatory and accreditation requirements and how to use both to create robust care and operational systems.
• Interpret the Conditions of Participation and understand applicability in your organization
• Discuss actual CMS findings and receive survey management guidance
