FYI - MCBDD Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey
The MCBDD will be conducting its annual stakeholder satisfaction survey next week.The purpose of this survey is to understand opinions about services received, as well as to help identify ways we can improve satisfaction and services in the future.

This is a random survey, so some individuals and/or family members/guardians of individuals who receive services from MCBDD may be receiving a phone call requesting participation in the survey. We will be sending information out to families this week about the survey. If anyone should contact you about the survey please assure them that we are working with a survey company (CMOR) to conduct it and all information will be confidential. Please read the letter below for information related to this survey

PPE Needed?
With the mask mandate in place, we want to make sure providers, families, and individuals are staying vigilant in health and safety efforts. If any PPE supplies are needed, including masks, disinfectant, sanitizers etc., please contact the MCBDD's provider helpline at providersupport@mcbdd.org. for supply requests.

Curriculum Transition
In February 2020, a new Medication Administration Certification Category 1 curriculum was published. The original mandatory transition to this tool by July 1, 2020 was postponed due to COVID-19. 

At this time RN Trainers need to plan to use only the new curriculum for all training after October 1, 2020. Providers will have until January 1, 2021 to transition all uses of the curriculum to the new January 2020 edition. View the new curriculum below.
