Content Diabetes is highly prevalent in long-term care and care is complicated by multi-morbidity, existing complications, disability, and dependency on caregivers. In addition, the presence of geriatric syndromes, including frailty and cognitive impairment present additional challenges. Individualization of care based on complexity, prognosis, and preferences forms the basis of diabetes management. Patients experience transitions of care, hypoglycemia, decline in condition, and are prone to adverse drug events and cardiovascular complications. Facility challenges include varying staff competencies, practitioner preferences, inconsistent interdisciplinary communication, overly complex medication regimens, and poorly implemented transitions of care.

During this 60-minute webinar, we will explore the Long-Term Care Facility Resident Assessment Instrument 3.0 User’s Manual’s definition and timing requirements for the SCSA, discuss what resident changes would be significant, review best practices for establishing a system to identify changes, and cover examples of when an SCSA would and would not be required.
