Letter from the President

CMDA members,

   Below are the minutes for the March 6th, 2018 meeting. I have  included the link below to buy the AMDA tool for providers to interpret the new Rules of Participation and regulations as well as Malcolm's tool which is very helpful for medical directors. The CDC opioid tools are also below. I want to again thank Dr. Sara Combs for her wonderful presentation on ESRD and her power point is attached. The UTI tool developed by Greg Gahm is also attached below. Finally, are you wondering how to register for the CMDA/CHCA annual conference on April 27, 2018? You can register on our website, CMDA.US under the events tab. 

        If you are going to attend the AMDA meeting this year in Grapevine, Texas please email me and I can include you on our reception email for Colorado and Wyoming. Remember, next month our meeting will be in a different room and building: C-1A. You will need to come a little early and come to building A to get a pass to enter building C. 

Thank you,

 Leslie Eber MD CMD

AMDA link to buy the tool for interpreting the new regulations:

“There is so much in the regulations that is important for physicians and other practitioners to understand, but it’s unrealistic to expect them to pour over and digest hundreds of pages,” says Victoria Walker, MD, CMD. Thanks to her leadership as Chair of the Clinical Issues Committee, which worked to trudge through the 400-plus pages of the recently revised Federal nursing facility regulations, you won’t have to. The result is the updated the “Synopsis of Federal Regulations in the Nursing Facility: Implications for Attending Physicians and Medical Directors.” Read more.

CMDA The Colorado Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (formerly the Colorado Medical Directors Association) is organized to provide support and education for medical directors, providers, nursing home administrators and directors of nursing concerning the provision of post-acute, long-term care medicine.

We are a State Chapter of AMDA The Society of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care PALTC.
