Originally published in 1987 and effective in 1990, the Regulations themselves have not been revised since 1987 although much has changed in the clinical practice of long term care and the types of residents admitted to these facilities for services.  To address this situation a number of individuals have been working on the revisions since 2010.  This session will go over some of the changes to the regulations and will also address the implementation schedule.
