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.

There are five (5) Programs included in this Package:

  • [3766] HOS| HOS Can Your Hospice Documentation Survive a Medical Review Audit?
    • Program Description: With an increase in TPE, UPIC and SMRC audits agencies need to ensure each chart can stand alone when audited. We know the #1 reason hospice agencies fail audits, have claims denied and have to pay money back is when the terminal diagnosis is not substantiated at admission and throughout the benefit period. Jennifer Prescott RN, MSN, CDP Founder/COO of Blue Water Homecare and Hospice, outlines the keys to success for hospice documentation for each discipline to support clinical eligibility based on LCD’s (Local Coverage Determination) and Medicare Conditions of Participation. It is a fun and fast paced session sharing tips and tricks for improving overall documentation, plans of care, and IDG documentation. [View more details for this program HERE]
