The diagnoses in these modules were selected as they represent the top reasons nursing facility patients are readmitted to hospitals. One of the primary reasons for developing the ltcGAIN Program is to reinforce assessment and communication skills to assist in the prevention of hospital readmissions.
Each of the modules available through the ltcGAIN Program should take approximately one hour to complete. Each module provides nursing contact hours, and participants are awarded a certificate upon completion that reflects the completed continuing education credit. There is a pre-test and post-test for each module. Criteria for successful completion includes achieving 80% or better on the post-test and submission of an evaluation for each module. Once a module has been completed it remains in your account and available for future review.
We invite you to with LeadingAge Ohio, pay for your modules, and return here to complete the ltcGAIN Program at your convenience from any computer, 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. After you return and register on the ltcGAIN site, you will be guided through the process
The SBAR Communications module provides foundational information for the other modules and must be completed first. This module is automatically added to each student account and also provides a nursing contact hour.

The modules are jointly provided by LeadingAge Ohio, the Ohio State University College of Nursing, and the Optimized Care Network. Module contact hours expire on December 31, 2020.
