Jun 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/deep-dive-into-compliance-details-series-part-2-communication-internal-monitoring-disciplinary-guidelines-and-corrective-actions

This session will focus on the remaining four elements of an effective compliance program:

  • Developing effective lines of communication
  • Internal monitoring and auditing
  • Enforcing standards through well-publicized disciplinary guidelines
  • Promptly responding to offenses and taking corrective action

The webinar will also address measurement options and tips for dealing with oversights. Do you have effective compliance protocols?  What reporting mechanism is used and is it anonymous?  Is the scope of the compliance risk assessment broad enough?  Does it drive internal monitoring and auditing?  What type of investigative process has been established and implemented?  How are corrective action plans developed and documented?  Attend this two-part series to ensure you understand the essential elements of an effective compliance program.

WEBINAR – Social Worker & Chaplain Skills Series: Ethical Challenges in Palliative Sedation & End-of-Life Decisions
Jul 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/social-worker-and-chaplain-skills-series-ethical-challenges-in-palliative-sedation-and-end-of-life-decisions

Sometimes the source of someone’s suffering is that they continue to live – also called “existential suffering.”  Can you recognize existential suffering?  Has your team determined how to address this dynamic?  Sedation (whether palliative, controlled, total, or respite) is a process that is often uncomfortable for team members to contemplate.  The conflicting mandates of controlling suffering and “do no harm” may be difficult to reconcile.  This webinar will delve into the challenges and dynamics existential suffering brings, including patient/family requests that present personal, professional, and ethical struggles.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • List and define relevant terminology
  • Explore dynamics related to existential suffering
  • National standards/debates related to palliative sedation as an intervention addressing existential suffering
  • Social worker and chaplain roles in addressing suffering and ethical challenges
  • Apply knowledge base interventions to situation examples
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Self-assessment exercise
    • Checklist for evaluating ethical challenges
    • Guide for social worker and chaplain roles addressing ethical challenges
