MEPAP 2nd Edition Part One will prepare the Activity Director with a sound base of knowledge in the overall function of an activity department serving residents living in long term care settings. Throughout the course, the student will learn skills and service methods that will enhance quality of life through individualized activity programming as well as training in the required documentation to meet state and federal regulations. This course format is an experiential learning method meaning; while there will be textbook reading and research, a large portion of the work will be out on the floor interacting with the interdisciplinary team, residents, and community resources.
*Note that MEPAP Part 1 meets the state level regulations as a qualifying activity training course in most states. Contact instructor for more information to see if MEPAP Part 1 applies to the state you are working in.
