Thursday, August 12, 2021, 1pm EST

Senior Living Healthcare Communities continue to receive regulatory citations for failing to implement gradual dose reductions and non-pharmacological interventions, unless contraindicated, prior to initiating or instead of continuing psychotropic medication. State Survey Agencies are also citing facilities for failing to ensure as needed orders for a psychotropic medication are only used when the medication is necessary, and use is limited.

Free from Unnecessary Psychotropic Medications will discuss federal regulations related to psychotropic medication usage and the assessment process for determining medication necessity, monitoring and care planning needs and requirements for gradual dose reductions. This program has been submitted to NAB/NCERS for approval for Continuing Education hours.
