WEBINAR – Hospice & Veterans – Special Considerations for the Heroes Among Us
Nov 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/hospice-veterans-special-considerations-for-the-heroes-among-us

Approximately 1,800 veterans die every day – that’s approximately one-quarter of annual deaths in the US.  It is projected that 600,000 veterans will die each year for the next 10 years.  Yet only 15% of veterans use the valuable end-of-life healthcare benefits they earned from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  The VA provides a variety of healthcare benefits specifically for elderly veterans, including geriatric healthcare for those with complex needs.  These programs can be received at home, at VA medical centers, or in the community.

This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the services available to veterans facing end-of-life decisions, including support opportunities for veterans and their families.  Learn the critical role of hospice and palliative care in guiding vets through decision-making and respecting their personal culture, religious beliefs, and values.  Veterans have earned our nation’s respect and gratitude and the VA’s end-of-life healthcare benefits provide the dignity and recognition they deserve.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Veterans Administration integrated health services
  • Home- and community-based services
  • Available services and eligibility requirements
  • How to locate services and access popular forms
  • Reimbursement and working with the VA
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Sample reference documents for community resources
    • Sample eligibility reference documents
    • Useful reference links

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is best suited for agency staff who are new or not familiar with VA services and resources, including staff members in agency administration, sales and social services, or anyone else who wants to learn more about VA benefits for home health, palliative care, and end-of-life.

WEBINAR – Social Worker & Chaplain Series: Psychosocial & Spiritual Aspects of Pain & Suffering In-Depth
Nov 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/social-worker-chaplain-series-psychosocial-spiritual-aspects-of-pain-suffering-in-depth

Nationally, conversations continue to evolve regarding the role of social workers and chaplains in pain and symptom management.  The role suffering plays in exacerbating physical pain and the importance of skillfully addressing it to better manage pain are widely known.  Interdisciplinary teams exist for a reason and this topic is at the heart of true interdisciplinary care.  Join us for an in-depth look at specific skills, techniques, and interventions for the complex situations chaplains and social workers routinely encounter.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

 

Sign up for this 3-part series!

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Discuss the direct connection between psychosocial/spiritual suffering and physical symptomology and pain
  • Challenges related to chaplains and social workers intervening in isolation from the medically focused team members
  • Discuss the notion that “team conversations” about care are not enough when addressing severe psychosocial/spiritual suffering
  • Present tools to assess both psychosocial and spiritual suffering and distress
  • Explore skills and specific interventions to address suffering on the individual and team levels
  • Apply above tools, skills, and interventions to case examples
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Examples of psychosocial, spiritual suffering/distress assessments
    • Process to discuss and plan for coordinated team interventions
    • Examples of skills application to specific situations
    • Handout with additional lecture notes
    • Extensive list of resources at the end of the handout and additional resources about specific topics throughout the handout.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This important webinar is designed to discuss psychosocial and spiritual suffering.  While this information is vital for chaplains and social workers, the emphasis will be on ensuring that all team members are familiar with their specific work to address suffering.  Managers and leadership will also benefit from this topic.
