Citation-Related Training Topics

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) is responsible for protecting and promoting the health, safety, and welfare of residents living and receiving care in the health and residential care facilities regulated by the Division. DQA’s oversight includes unannounced monitoring and compliance surveys for certain facility types. As part of the survey process, a regulated provider may receive a Statement of Deficiency for a variety of citations and may require staff training as part of the Plan of Correction.

The Caregiver Project provides a variety of classroom-style (topical) trainings, video-based (experiential) trainings and on-demand courses that can assist you in addressing your staff training needs related to citations in the following areas:
