Issue Briefs by Topic

Issue Briefs by Topic

The issue briefs here are intended to stimulate thoughts, spark creative ideas, and help State Agencies (SAs) launch program innovations.  They aren't intended to include all SA practices about a particular topic, but rather give a sampling of various state approaches as tools and support for new and current surveyors.

Also, posting of these Promising Practices briefs doesn't represent an endorsement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Rather, these issue briefs are a way to help disseminate information about effective methods various SAs have implemented to help improve their survey performance.

See the titles listed in the Downloads section below for the Promising Practices Issue Briefs about each topic category.

Future reports will be posted on a regular basis.
