Session 5 | Integrating QAA and QAPI

Session Summary

Quality Assessment and Assurance (QAA) and Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) are two very important aspects of the quality improvement process yet they are different. Both are regulated and both are synergistic. This session was developed to promote awareness, enhance the quality improvement process, support enhanced root cause analysis and ultimately to enhance resident care and outcomes. Participants are anticipated to walk away from this session able to advance their QAA and QAPI programs that add meaning and improve quality outcomes.
