Quality Management Plan Compliance Training

Quality Management ProgamThe Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has promulgated a new regulation requiring Assisted Living Residences (ALRs), Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs), and Residential Care Facilities for the Intellectual Disabilities (RCF/IDs) to implement a Quality Management Program (QMP) in order to retain or be granted licensure to operate. The QMP must include, but is not limited to:

  • Risk assessment for all reportable incidents occurring within the facility
  • Specified personnel responsible for implementing the QMP and for reporting on it
  • Reporting methods for all incidents
  • Investigation and analysis strategies for incident management
  • Corrective action plans for preventing incident reoccurrence
  • Follow-up methods on implemented corrective actions

To ensure your facility meets the regulatory requirements, The Society is offering a series of Quality Management Program Compliance Trainings. Trainings will help your facility analyze your existing plans and procedures, identify plan deficiencies, and develop fully compliant plans in time for your next survey. This intensive two-day workshop style training will help you learn about basic QMP skill sets, creating assessments and care plans, medical and nursing regulations, emergency preparedness and human resources issues. All attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion for continuing education.



Develop quality management skills using SMART goals, the mission statement, current rules, and the 9 elements to develop a data-driven QMP plan based on survey results, occurrence reports, and overall assessment of business practices.
Use Patient Activation Models (PAM) to evaluate the client on pre-admission; review admission assessment during the first 84 hours using written and verbal communication techniques; supporting the long term placement including physical, mental and social determinants; and identifying a risk management plan to safely discharge residents who need more care. Includes care delivery for advance directives, discharge planning, hospitalizations, rehabilitation, home care, mental health and fall management.
Increase competency to supervise medication management and personal care including best practices for medication management, regulatory guidelines for delivering personal care, training and coaching QMAP staff, and implementing a quality assurance plan.
Bringing the emergency preparedness plan in compliance with local, state and federal regulations. Special focus on evacuations, especially for residents with medications, adaptive equipment, mobility issues, and oxygen. Focus on liability and risk management, as well as communication patterns with staff, families, and emergency management personnel.
