Back to Package

Caring for the older adult in the post-acute care setting requires competency across all departments and disciplines as the ability to address the increased complexity and acuity of health concerns unique to this population is demanded by multiple stakeholders. Educators in this setting face the unique challenge of ensuring competency through learning and evaluation in the face of budgetary and regulatory constraints, in addition to increased resident acuity. Competency-based learning and evaluation using strategies such as simulation is an effective way to develop staff proficiency. In this session, you will explore creative ways to use simulation to meet new competency requirements. Following this session, you will be able to:

  • Recognize three challenges when evaluating competency in the post-acute setting
  • Understand the value of competency-based evaluations
  • Utilize two competency-based evaluation activities to promote learning and support decision making
  • Identify key competencies that can be evaluated through simulation
