10. Know Your Resources

8. Social Determinants of Health
7. Additions, Modifications, and Clarifications

Foundational to any new learning is affirming that information is from a primary source of reference. For the MDS and RAI revisions, the primary source is CMS.
Each blog is developed by Reliant Rehabilitation’s team of RAC-Certified clinicians and contains easy to digest summaries of the MDS Updates.
Provided here is a compilation of CMS Websites, Training, and Manuals to download and bookmark as we embark on this blog series.
