In this webinar designed specifically for volunteers we will explore the role of the volunteer in assisting the team with addressing abuse and neglect.

WEBINAR – CoP Compliance for Hospice Personnel Series: Compliance for the Hospice Chaplain & Social Worker
Mar 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/cop-compliance-for-hospice-personnel-series-compliance-for-the-hospice-chaplain-social-worker

Do not overlook the essential roles of the hospice social worker and chaplain! The documentation they provide is crucial in supporting eligibility and Medicare payment. The bereavement care they offer, especially during challenging times, is vital to your patients and families.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Identify Medicare hospice eligibility requirements and how chaplain and social worker documentation can support hospice admission and ongoing eligibility
  • Explain social worker and chaplain requirements for assessments and plans of care, including how their roles support bereavement
  • Define the four levels of care and how chaplain and social worker documentation can support each
  • Identify assessment tools available to assist with goals and outcomes
  • Employ best practices to avoid compliance challenges

WEBINAR DETAILS

The roles of hospice social workers and chaplains are often underutilized and misunderstood. With the increase in hospice oversight through either Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) or state audits, documentation from both social workers and chaplains has become critical in supporting hospice eligibility and Medicare payment. This webinar will cover social work and spiritual care related regulations (which can be frustratingly vague), levels of licensing, assessment guidance, documentation, and how to stay involved when visits are refused. It will also provide suggestions and best practices for using assessments and plans of care as the basis for quality and compliant practices; review bereavement compliance requirements; explain how to strengthen documentation, including through IDG; and assess compliance challenges when social workers and chaplains are unable to make regular visits.

WEBINAR – Hospice Policy Update: HOSPICE Act Provisions & Alternative Sanctions

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/hospice-policy-update-hospice-act-provisions-and-alternative-sanctions

The latest hospice policy update brings alternative sanctions and HOSPICE Act provisions including key changes to surveys. This webinar will review the potential impacts on the hospice industry and preparation strategies for the future.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Identify key changes to hospice surveys in the HOSPICE Act
  • Understand what alternative sanctions are and how they are utilized
  • Comprehend the potential financial impact of CMPs on your agency
  • Acknowledge the potential benefits of accreditation in light of alternative sanctions

WEBINAR DETAILS

The Consolidated Appropriations Act was jam-packed with over 5,000 pages including measures addressed to the hospice industry. One of those provisions was the Helping Our Senior Population in Comfort Environments (HOSPICE) Act. The HOSPICE Act is a response to an OIG report that called for more stringent hospice oversight. This act addresses hospice survey enforcement and intends to bring hospice survey into alignment with the other survey processes. It addresses survey frequency, team composition, surveyor training, and other aspects of survey enforcement. The biggest change is the addition of authority for alternative sanctions. This webinar will review the provisions of the HOSPICE Act. It will also look at the impact of alternate sanctions in the home health industry and skilled-nursing facilities to identify potential impacts on hospice and preparation strategies for the future.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

All it takes is one racially insensitive tweet or gender-biased text to turn off patients, employees, recruits, and the community. Don’t allow insensitive email, prejudiced posts, vitriolic video chat, or bullying blogs to undercut your D&I strategy and damage your organization’s reputation.
