Regulatory F-Tag Crosswalk to Culture Change

Examining more than 180 F-Tags, the Regulatory F-Tag Crosswalk to Culture Change product identifies a link between a primary Culture Change Principle and the regulatory language, and weaves an action-based connection between Culture Change Values and Guidance to Surveyors for each regulation. This very popular reference will assist you in communicating to your team how Culture Change Initiatives do not interfere with Federal Reulations, but in reality support them and their intent to protect the elders who live in our homes and improve their quality of care and quality of life.

Initially released in 3 volumes, and fully updated to include CMS F-Tag changes through August 2007, Volumes 1, 2, & 3 of the Crosswalk can still be purchased separately to complete your series. If you are new to the Regulatory F-Tag Crosswalk to Culture Change, you may be interested in acquiring the Full Series Edition which includes the F-Tags contained in all three volumes arranged in a single 265-page reference manual.
