  • Participants will understand why accurate, consistent assessments are vital to effective patient care.
  • Participants will understand what is measured in the PPS assessment.
  • Participants will understand what is measured in the FAST assessment.

Chronic vs. Terminal - Cardiac Care

July 20 , 2021 | 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Details: 

Patients with end-stage cardiac disease may live longer than patients without hospice intervention. As such, these patients can be challenging for hospice organizations to care for. In this webinar on July 20, learn about the National Government Services (NGS) Local Coverage Determinations applicable to end-stage cardiac disease at admission and throughout the patient’s stay on hospice, with special attention to documenting non-disease specific measures of decline and symptoms that resist hospice interventions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand the challenges that cardiac patients may face while in hospice care.
  • Participants will learn about the National Government Services (NGS) Local Coverage Determinations applicable to end-stage cardiac disease at admission and throughout the patient’s stay on hospice.
  • Participants will learn how documenting non-disease specific measures of decline and symptoms that resist hospice interventions.

Chronic vs. Terminal - Respiratory Care

August 10 , 2021 | 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Details:

It can be difficult to accurately determine the six-month prognosis for patients with end-stage pulmonary disease, which often challenges hospice organizations.  This webinar, which is the last in a series, will discuss the documentation by the IDG team on admission and throughout the patient’s stay on hospice that supports – or risks – pulmonary patients’ longer length of stay. Particular attention will be given to the National Government Services (NGS) Local Coverage Determinations applicable to end-stage pulmonary diseases.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand the documentation by the IDG team on admission and throughout the patient’s stay on hospice that supports – or risks – pulmonary patients’ longer length of stay
  • Participants will understand the National Government Services (NGS) Local Coverage Determinations applicable to end-stage pulmonary diseases.
  • Participants will understand how respiratory challenges pose the need for additional care for hospice patients.
