Thanks to HCAF's advocacy efforts, the Florida Legislature passed legislation in 2020 (HB 607) that allows certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and home health aides to take on expanded duties under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN). Now that the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) has completed its rulemaking process, we would like to know how your agency ensures compliance and implements the new rules. Join Heather Curren, RN, BSN, COS-C, HCS-D, HCS-H, Director of Education at SimiTree, as she outlines the specifications of the medication administration program requirements, training, and RN delegation of tasks. Additionally, she will provide an overview of HCAF's six (6) hours of training scheduled for the week following HomeCareCon (please refer to the advertisement included in this welcome guide for additional details), as well as how the upcoming live and on-demand training could benefit an agency's CNAs and home health aides.

This session introduces participants to steps for evaluating your business' bandwidth and tolerance for risk when negotiating contracts. The speakers will also discuss negotiation strategies, such as how to defend your position and obtain better reimbursement terms and agreements.  Read More
