National CMS/CDC Nursing Home COVID-19 Training Series

Starting on August 20, the National CMS/CDC Nursing Home COVID-19 Training Series live webinar series will transition to a pre-recorded, self-paced format.

The new CMS-CDC Fundamentals of COVID-19 Prevention for Nursing Home Management training series will include 13 topics that nursing home partners must know to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. These trainings will be housed on QIOProgram.org for 24/7 access.

New, pre-recorded trainings will be released every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. EST through September 2020. The first pre-recorded training that will be released on August 20 is “Cohorting Strategies”.

CMS and CDC will have subject-matter experts available on bi-weekly Q&A sessions through early January 2021 to answer questions you may have about the trainings.
