The Quality Improvement Program for Missouri (QIPMO), is a cooperative service between the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The program is entirely separate from the state survey and enforcement process. Nursing facility participation in the program is voluntary and confidential.
Our Gerontological nurse experts provide education on best practices to improve care delivery and outcomes for nursing home residents. QIPMO offers individual nurse consultation and technical assistance for the Resident Assessment Instrument, Quality Measures, Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced reports (CASPER), and Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) processes as well as MDS support groups and workshops. The QIPMO service is funded by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
