WEBINAR – Creating a Successful Hospice Competency Program
Dec 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/creating-a-successful-hospice-competency-program

Qualified, professional, and compliant staff are critical for the success of hospice agencies and meeting accrediting and Medicare standards.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Understand what a formalized hospice competency program is and discuss why the following areas are crucial:
    • Ensuring employees, subcontractors, students, and volunteers are qualified and competent to provide services to patients and perform job responsibilities
    • How a lack of competency can lead to deficiencies on start-ups and accredited agencies, creating risk management issues for all agencies
    • Recognizing administrators and managers may not understand the requirements and assume in-service and supervisory visits are adequate
    • Why a formalized competency program for all staff, including subcontractors, is essential in meeting accrediting and Medicare standards
  • Develop and implement a successful competency program

WEBINAR DETAILS

Qualified, professional, and compliant staff are critical for the success of hospice agencies.  Despite this, many agencies do not have a formal competency program!  Having a formalized competency program for all staff, including subcontractors, is essential to meeting accrediting and Medicare standards.  This program will provide an in-depth explanation of what a formalized competency program is and how to successfully develop and implement one within your agency.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session would best suit administrators, managers, and quality-assurance staff.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Review the updated measures that will affect public reporting
  • Fulfill patient communication requirements regarding the CAHPS Hospice Survey
  • Detail review questions from survey document
  • Consider how agency actions affect patient responses

WEBINAR DETAILS

A lack of satisfaction survey responses is frustrating and difficult to combat. However, agencies can affect the scores they receive from those that do respond!  Some questions that impact the CAHPS Hospice Survey results are directly impacted by the influence your clinicians have on patients.  Are clinicians treating wounds or are they treating patients?  If patients believe they are just another Medicare number, your hospice’s CAHPS results will reflect that.  This session will take you through the questions that affect the measures and review best practices.  Ensure patients feel like a top priority and know your hospice is providing the best caregivers!

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is designed for directors, administrators, field staff, and all staff members that impact patient satisfaction.

TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
