The Minimum Data Set 3.0 will be implemented October 1, 2010 and it will be critical that long-term care facility staff is fluent in the new language and practices of the MDS.

It is a core set of screening and assessment elements, including definitions and coding categories, which form the foundation of a comprehensive assessment.
