NCTRC Update from August 2015 Newsletter: CTRS Recognized by CMS
The Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) was recently identified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a contributing allied health professional in providing services to individuals with dementia. An expert panel of professionals recently completed work on the development of a Tool Kit for CMS surveyors and providers to increase their understanding of persons with dementia. The expert panel examined research on dementia and associative behaviors to determine the non-pharmacological interventions that have the most efficacious outcomes in minimizing challenging behaviors among persons with dementia. The panel’s work also included a review of the allied health professions involved in working with persons with dementia and the development of a professional profile of qualified providers. Sharon Nichols, CTRS/L (former NCTRC Board Chairperson) was responsible for the development of the profile for recreational therapists. Nichols was the only CTRS serving on this prestigious national panel and as a result of her contributions, CMS incorporated the recreational therapist (CTRS) into the profile of qualified providers. The outcome of Nichol’s involvement underscores the importance of professional outreach in establishing professional recognition by state and national regulatory organizations. Kudos to Sharon Nichols, CTRS/L!
