MDS Part II: Sections C, D, F and J: Capturing Resident Voice through Resident Interviews


Vice President of AANAC Curriculum Development
RAC-CT Master Teacher


Person-centered care is a focal point for improving resident outcomes, regulatory compliance and higher QM ratings. The RAI process harnesses resident voice through MDS Sections C, D, F and J, but is often underrated in its positive impact on resident outcomes. The data in these sections are impacted by social services, activities and nurses, but how often do all three disciplines collaborate in coding? The MDS Part 2 session will cover:

  • Section C – Accurately coding the gateway questions, determining cognitive status, managing care of residents with dementia
  • Section D – Capturing and managing mood indicators
    Section F – Using resident preferences to create person-focused care plans
  • Section J – Identifying and managing pain
