  • OASIS Learning to Go: OASIS Pursuit of Excellence Series
    OASIS Learning to Go: OASIS Pursuit of Excellence Series

    This OASIS Learning System takes the clinician on a journey! Clinicians who are responsible for collecting OASIS data face many trials when applying CMS guidance on answering the OASIS questions. This 17 session audio/PowerPoint series includes a discussion of the entire OASIS dataset - section by section - with emphasis on those portions of OASIS guidance that are not readily apparent at first glance. As definitions and clarification are revealed, the attendee will gain a roadmap to increased OASIS accuracy and understanding.

     
    These sessions offer:

    • Modules on CD broken down into topical sections
    • Post-tests for each module to assure competency and retention of knowledge
    • Attendance log to track employee attendance in group education settings
    • Printable handouts for reference, including the presentation slides along with the current chapter 3 guidance applicable to each module
    • Certificate of Completion

     

    This education format can be easily added to your day-to-day operations. Use these educational sessions in a classroom setting or your clinicians can do this in a self-directed scenario.

    Rhonda Crawford, BSN, RN, CHCE, HCS-D, HCS-O, COS-C has been in home care since 1991. One of the nation’s leading OASIS experts, Rhonda has recorded the audio for these sessions. The attendee can watch the PowerPoint presentation onscreen while listening to the audio.
