• Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes

    Wednesday September 5, 2012
    In 2012, CMS launched the Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes to promote comprehensive dementia care and therapeutic interventions for nursing home residents with dementia-related behaviors. The goals of this initiative include a focus on person-centered care and the reduction of unnecessary antipsychotic medication use in nursing homes and eventually other care settings as well.

    CMS is using several approaches to successfully implement this initiative. CMS is developing and conducting trainings for nursing home providers, surveyors, and consumers. We are conducting research, raising public awareness, using regulatory oversight, and public reporting to increase transparency.
