Home Care Quality Management Program Presentation Material Available Online

The Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment have made Quality Management Program presentation materials available to home care agencies.

From September through December 2013, the division offered numerous QMP presentations throughout the state. The intent of the presentations was to orient home care agency personnel to basic quality management principles and to communicate department expectations for future license inspections.

The presentation material, guidance documents and written exercises used during the presentations are now available for download. As stated during each presentation, the quality management model and terminology employed for training purposes was simple and introductory; not intended to be the definitive expectation for how agencies were to structure their QMP activities. Agencies are encouraged to employ the models and terminology most applicable and effective to their agencies.

To access the materials, please visit the division website at Navigate to "Consumer and Provider Resources", "Home Care Agencies", and "Provider Resources".
