This Discussion paper summarizes the background and recommendations for potential changes to make the Minimum Data Set and related policies and practices more useful to states for identifying and supporting nursing home residents who wish to return to their homes and communities. Section Q of the MDS has, for some years, been discussed at state and national conferences, training sessions, on conference calls, during technical assistance visits, and in talks among state Medicaid staff.
