Making a Difference in Individuals Lives!
We are the National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP), comprised of caring professionals who partner together to address quality of care for individuals with mental illness or intellectual/developmental disabilities who apply for admission or continued residence in nursing facilities. We are the governmental and non-governmental professionals who develop, implement, and educate about the mission of PASRR. We are NAPP, and through Preadmission Screening and Resident Review, we are improving individualized care.
NAPP envisions a future of expanding leadership, education, resources and empowerment for all members so that each may implement quality PASRR processes to benefit those we serve through a person-centered approach with commitment to diversity, inclusion, dignity, and equity in all that we do.
Our Core Values
NAPP embraces the following Core Values:
Collaboration: Aspires to bring a collaborative spirit and strategy to all that we do, learning from the insights and leadership of others, and sharing openly what others may be able to learn from us.
Engagement: Promotes informed partnership and problem-solving among professionals, individuals, their families, care givers and other stakeholders to engage in open discussions and promote supported decision making while building trust.
Person-Centered Approach: Results in people building their confidence, self-esteem, and skills, acquiring new strengths and regaining those they have lost through ill health or personal circumstances.
Diversity: Enhances creativity, cultural competency, and humility. It encourages the search for novel information and perspectives facilitating trust.
Inclusion: Addresses how well the contributions, presence, and perspectives of different groups of people are valued and integrated into any environment. Inclusion enhances dignity, respect, and equity through freedom from bias or favoritism. We believe that the individual is enriched by the breadth of life experience; and we believe that a person-centered approach calls on PASRR professionals to embrace collaboration, engagement, person-centeredness, diversity, and inclusion, in deep and transformative ways. We aspire to be comprehensive or holistic in the way that we engage and learn from these experiences and to model our commitment to these core values in all that we do.
