Articles and Papers
Action Pact’s senior consultant Linda Bump, MPH, RD, helped draft the “New Dining Practice Standards” put out by the Food and Dining Clinical Standards Task Force. The work of the task force was sponsored by The Pioneer Network and The Rothschild Foundation. This work sprung from the 2010 national symposia “Creating Home II: Dining,” which was co-sponsored by CMS and the Pioneer Network to address the challenges of honoring resident rights and choice in dining, consistent with OBRA 1987.
Linda Bump also contributed a white paper, “The Deep Seated Issue of Choice,” as a background paper for the 2010 symposia.
