Joint Training of Kansas providers and surveyors was created with the goal of bringing together Kansas long term care professionals and state surveyors in a way that promotes interaction, growth and understanding. Each Joint Training features a deficiency area with the goal of educating providers and surveyors on acceptable standards of practice. The Kansas Health Care Association has worked closely with LeadingAge Kansas, the Kansas Adult Care Executives, and the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services to present this Joint Training session.
