The purpose of this course is to offer clear guidance about how to use the Resident AssessmentInstrument (RAI) correctly and effectively to help provide appropriate care. Providing care toresidents with post-hospital and long-term care needs is complex and challenging work. Clinicalcompetence, observational, interviewing and critical thinking skills, and assessment expertisefrom all disciplines are required to develop individualized care plans. The RAI helps nursinghome staff gather definitive information on a resident’s strengths and needs, which must beaddressed in an individualized care plan. It also assists staff with evaluating goal achievementand revising care plans accordingly by enabling the nursing home to track changes in theresident’s status. As the process of problem identification is integrated with sound clinicalinterventions, the care plan becomes each resident’s unique path toward achieving ormaintaining his or her highest practical level of well-being.
