MDS Support Groups

Support groups for MDS Coordinators meet monthly in each of Missouri's seven Institutional Services Regions.  These meetings give you the opportunity to discuss issues relating to MDS, PPS, and the RAI Process.  Please consider joining a group near you and learn more about helpful resources available to you, recent news from CMS, software, and clinical practices.  You may contact Jessica Mueller, (573) 882-0241, for more information about the meetings.

Please take a look at our meeting calendar. You are welcome to attend any meeting anywhere in the state. We hope you will join us!

The support group flyer links under each region open as Adobe (.pdf) files. Please make sure you have Adobe Reader on your computer to ensure you can open the files. You can download the latest version here.

In the case of inclement weather – if there is any doubt on your part whether the support group in your area is still being held (i.e. if schools are canceled or running on snow routes, etc.) please check back here at the website or contact the group's facilitator. We’ll try to keep everyone as updated as possible!
