The NBCP 6th Annual Training Meeting is designed to educate NBCP grantee States on how to improve their background check programs for long term care (LTC) providers and facilities through information sharing. It is also designed to provide information to non-participating States interested in establishing LTC background check programs. This training is part of the technical assistance CMS provides to States under the Affordable Care Act, which requires the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to establish a nationwide program for long term care facilities and providers to conduct background checks on a statewide basis on all prospective direct patient access employees.

Grantee States are required under the terms of their grant to send three attendees to the NBCP Training Meeting, using NBCP grant funds. States may send more than three attendees; however, the States will have to fund the additional people. Non-grantee States are invited to this training as well.
