WEBINAR – The Great Ethical Challenge: Over-Involved Versus Under-Involved
Jun 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/the-great-ethical-challenge-over-involved-versus-under-involved

Based on the current state of healthcare (increased caseloads, continual regulatory changes, documentation requirements, focus on patient/family satisfaction surveys, etc.), patient care workers in hospice and home care often struggle with time management.  Some say, “This is not why I got into this work” or “I give patients and families all the time they need and then stay late to do documentation on my own time.”  Add the challenge – and common dynamic – of working with patients/families who have experienced some degree of past/present trauma and it can be difficult to establish personal and professional boundaries or use time effectively.  This webinar will provide current data to assist in understanding the critical nature of establishing personal and professional boundaries, especially when working with traumatized people.

WEBINAR – Partnership Series: Building Strong & Compliant Skilled-Nursing Partnerships
Jul 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/partnership-series-building-strong-compliant-skilled-nursing-partnerships

Estimates for long-term-care expenditures continue to rise.  According to the US Census Bureau, just over 5% of the 65+ population occupy nursing homes, congregate care, assisted living, and board-and-care homes; 4.2% are in nursing homes.  Patients who reside in skilled-nursing facilities tend to be more acute and fragile, so hospice can provide many benefits for those residents.

However, the skilled-nursing facility (SNF) environment is changing in meaningful ways in 2019.  Reimbursement requirements are easing the documentation requirements.  PDPM (Patient Driven Payment Model) will be implemented, which will be a new classification system.  In addition, the SNF Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program’s 30-day all-cause readmissions started for fiscal year 2019 in October 2018.  This program will address SNF reimbursements, regulations, and staff.  What are their needs and struggles?  How can we provide solutions and drive value to the nursing facilities?  This session will benefit staff newly involved with SNFs and others who want more information.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Statistics, definitions, and types of SNF care
  • Organization structure and staff roles
  • Reimbursement environment and why outcomes matter
  • Elements of contracting
  • Hospice value proposition and strategies for a successful partnership
  • Suggested marketing tools
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Sample tool for staff roles and potential needs
    • Sample checklist of marketing tools
    • Useful websites

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is directed to new hospice sales professionals, staff members involved in the SNF environment, sales managers, administrators, and team members wanting insight into SNFs and how hospice can help patients in those facilities.

WEBINAR – The IDG Meeting: It Takes a Special Skill Set
Jul 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/the-idg-meeting-it-takes-a-special-skill-set

Most of us do not come to the hospice setting with the ability “to be” interdisciplinary.  Functioning in an interdisciplinary manner is not the normal state of being in healthcare.  Likewise, pointing to a room and saying “now go have an interdisciplinary group (IDG) meeting” is often beyond our skillset.  This webinar will address the vital importance of achieving a true interdisciplinary way of providing care.  It will focus on team meetings that produce improved problem solving, coordination of care, and, as research demonstrates, higher levels of patient/family satisfaction.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Common challenges that interfere with providing true interdisciplinary care
  • How the regulations encourage interdisciplinary team functioning, but also create obstacles
  • Interdisciplinary team meeting styles, techniques, and strategies
  • Three ways to ensure “better meetings” is not equivalent to “longer meetings”
  • A three-phase plan to develop high-functioning interdisciplinary group meetings
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Assessment exercise
    • Optimal team functioning guide
    • Team leadership techniques list
    • Guide for keeping meetings on track
    • Training materials for current and future team members
    • Planning exercise
    • Handout with additional lecture notes
    • List of references and additional learning opportunities

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This enlightening webinar is designed for all team members, especially those in charge of team functioning and IDG meetings.  Senior leadership will also benefit as this information can help raise the bar for creating an organization that is truly interdisciplinary on all levels.
