Program Description: This program presents the current regulatory requirements for infection control for hospice agencies, including practical implementation of the regulations within your
agency. With the cessation of the COVID-19 PHE and the increased oversight on hospice agency operations, agencies must ensure their compliance with all regulations, and
guidelines – including the recently updated State operations manual surveyor guidance. The session offers tips and tools for you to use as you tackle the ongoing challenge of
educating staff, patients and caregivers about this ever-important requirement.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
