Discussion at the integrating interRAI in your care facility workshops has revealed that some interRAI assessors are continuing to use outdated editions of the National Standards.  This may be contributing to some interRAI assessments taking longer than is necessary.  The National Standards give guidance on how to carry out assessments efficiently, for example, by keeping comments concise.

A new edition of the LTCF National Standards (dated October 2018) has been published by interRAI NZ and is available at  https://www.interrai.co.nz/help/getting-assessments-right/
