OASIS continues to evolve! Based on the most current CMS guidance available, this workshop provides the nation’s best preparation on the 27 new OASIS-E items and guidance, scheduled to become effective January 1, 2023. This engaging, up-to-the-minute education is developed and is targeted for field data collectors, clinical supervisors, OASIS educators and reviewers, quality improvement staff, and those preparing for the COS-C Exam.
Experience the comprehensive and nationally acclaimed two-day Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy workshop and learn to confidently teach, audit and collect OASIS-E items accurately.

The workshop educational objectives include:
· Selecting OASIS responses that accurately represent clinical assessment findings
· Providing accurate data for valid quality measurement and payment
