CMS, supported by a team of instructional designers and subject matter experts, created Hand in Hand, to address the annual requirement for nurse aide training on these important topics. Person-centerd care is an approach to care that focuses on residents as individuals and supports caregives working most closely with them. It involves a continual process of listening, testing new approaches, and changing routines and organizational approaches in an effort to individualize and de-institutionalize the care environment. Person-centered care is the central theme of the Hand in Hand training.
