Part IV Revised NORS Training Materials
State Ombudsman programs submit data regarding program activities to the Administration for Community Living (ACL)/Administration on Aging (AoA), using the codes, definitions, and activities outlined in the instructions for the National Ombudsman Reporting Systems (NORS). The data has been collected since 1996 and this is the first comprehensive revision. The revised NORS data collection is effective October 1, 2019.
NORC has updated the four-part NORS training materials to reflect the updated codes, definitions, and activities and instruct programs on how to record the work they do. States are to continue to use the current approved NORS codes and instructions and training materials to ensure consistent reporting until the updated data collection is effective on October 1, 2019.
The purpose of this webinar series is to introduce the new training materials to help programs prepare for the transition to new codes, definitions, and activities on October 1, 2019.
Additional information about NORS can be found on the NORC website and archived webinars are located here.
Certificate of Attendance
Individuals that registered and attended all five live webinars will receive certificates of attendance directly from GoToWebinar. Unfortunately, individuals that watch the webinar recordings or that listened to the live webinars in a room with others will not receive a certificate of attendance since neither GoToWebinar or NORC staff can verify attendance. Those without certificates will need to speak with their supervisor about their attendance. We are sending lists of attendees for each of the five live webinars to State Ombudsmen. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
