The MDS 3.0 Section Q, also known as the Person Centered Transition into Community Living project facilitated a statewide community group to collectively develop the referral process for NH’s nursing home residents interested in learning about community living options.
The MDS is a clinical assessment used by all federally certified nursing homes for all residents. A revised version of the assessment called the MDS 3.0 was launched for use in October 2010. The Section Q of the MDS 3.0 actively engages the resident in determining their potential goal of exploring community living options for possible transfer back into community living. The Section Q question directly asks the resident if s/he wants to talk to someone to learn of community living options. For resident’s who respond positively, NH’s nursing homes are required to implement the referral process developed by the statewide community group.
The MDS 3.0 Training Module is designed to:
- Provided instruction on the implementation of Section Q of the MDS 3.0 assessment
- Provide information on who to contact for Section Q referrals
- Provide a description and illustration of the referral process developed by the statewide community group for Section Q referrals
