WEBINAR – Effectively Manage Hospice Live Discharges Part 2: Eligibility Assessment, Documentation, Discharge Planning, & the Care Continuum
Aug 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/effectively-manage-hospice-live-discharges-part-2-eligibility-assessment-documentation-discharge-planning-the-care-continuum

Hospices are continuously faced with the dilemma of length of stay and eligibility regarding live discharges. Is your agency prepared for the live discharge process? Do you even have a process? Join this webinar to ensure your agency is not only prepared, but also has an effective process in place.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Describe the hospice live discharge process
  • Explain the importance of ongoing eligibility assessment
  • Utilize the when, who, and how of planning a live hospice discharge
  • Define required documentation for the different types of hospice live discharges
  • Distinguish the role of the “care continuum” within a hospice live discharge
  • Utilize hospice PEPPER reports to learn what live discharge data draws the government’s focus

WEBINAR DETAILS

When hospice services are discontinued due to ineligibility or another live discharge reason, people can feel like these critical services have been yanked out from under them. It is predicted that one in five patients could face a live discharge, and possibly even higher for those with a non-cancer diagnosis or in a for-profit hospice program. Part 2 of this two-part series will help your agency learn to identify and teach staff the difference between a revocation and a live discharge. It will review the need for ongoing eligibility assessment for the Medicare Benefit and explain why support documentation is so important.

Since the live discharge process is complex, it will be explored in-depth, emphasizing ongoing eligibility assessment, discharge planning, and how to support the care continuum even after services are discontinued. Reports and statistics targeted by the government will be addressed and you will learn if your agency is operating under the radar. These critical topics and more will be addressed in this highly informative webinar!

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

WEBINAR – Obtaining Truly Informed Consent: Real-life Situations for All Team Members
Aug 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/obtaining-truly-informed-consent-real-life-situations-for-all-team-members

During end-of-life care, everyone on the hospice team plays a role in the ongoing process of informed consent. This informative webinar is designed for all team members and will address what truly informed consent entails by using real-life examples.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Discuss what it means to be truly informed
  • Differentiate between consent and assent
  • List three risks team members often neglect to include
  • Explain why a family member cannot sign admission consent forms for a patient with decisional capacity
  • Discuss the importance of informed consent as an ongoing process

WEBINAR DETAILS

It is not uncommon to assume that signing admission forms finalizes informed consent. However, informed consent is not a one-time signature; it is an ongoing process. What does that really mean? Who can sign and who cannot? How does assessing decisional capacity relate to informed consent? Throughout the process, hospice team members are required to disclose both the benefits and risks during the end-of-life care. Are your team members aware of the risks? This webinar will use real-life scenarios to explain truly informed consent and how to avoid potential pitfalls.

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

WEBINAR – Creating HIPAA Compliant Email & Social Media Content that Communicates Clearly with Patients & Peers
Aug 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/creating-hipaa-compliant-email-social-media-content-that-communicates-clearly-with-patients-peers

With the ever-growing number of home-based employees, the risks of email and social media miscommunication, HIPAA fines, lawsuits, privacy violations, and records disasters are greater than ever. Learn how to protect your patients, staff, and agency from HIPAA violations.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Comply with HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules governing e-communications
  • Minimize HIPAA risks triggered by email, texting, social media, and mobile devices
  • Communicate clearly and compliantly with patients, peers, and other parties

  • Write conversational, clear, and compliant email and social media posts
  • Ensure email and posts are read and acted upon, not ignored and deleted
  • Create best-practices-based policies governing social media, email, and other
    e-communication tools
  • Enforce content and compliance rules among onsite and remote employees
  • Benefit from expert advice and best-practices-based compliance tips

WEBINAR DETAILS

Inappropriate and unprofessional content is more than a nuisance – it’s a liability. The best way to minimize e-risks is to effectively manage written communication. Content that is ill-conceived, poorly written, or grammatically incorrect can delay decisions, turn off readers, and diminish your professional reputation. Tone-deaf texts and tweets that are harassing, discriminatory, or otherwise offensive can trigger lawsuits and patient dissatisfaction. Content that exposes EPHI, violates patient privacy, or reveals business records can lead to HIPAA fines and legal sanctions.

In the battle for readers’ attention, thoughtfully written, carefully worded, legally compliant messages and posts are crucial. Join us for a comprehensive look at electronic-content risks, writing rules, and compliance best practices. Learn skills and strategies for effective, clear, compliant e-communication with patients, peers, and others. Participants will receive valuable tools to help them create compliant email and social media posts.

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/oha/webinar/delegation-a-core-leadership-skill-for-agency-success

Do you have a to-do list that you never seem to complete? Feel like it gets longer and longer each day? This is a common challenge and managing your tasks effectively involves learning how to delegate.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Define what delegation is
  • Reap the benefits of delegation
  • Learn the most common reasons why managers don’t delegate
  • Discover a seven-step process for delegating effectively
  • Acknowledge the importance of delegation
  • Distinguish between what can be delegated and what can’t

WEBINAR DETAILS

Being a leader or manager, whether formally or informally, is rewarding and exciting. Let’s face it – it’s also a tough job. Leaders experience high levels of pressure resulting in a feeling of being overwhelmed, which eventually leads to burnout. Effective leadership and management require a certain set of refined skills to lead others and yourself. Delegation is one of those critical leadership skills. If it’s so critical, why don’t more managers embrace it? There are three common reasons why leaders don’t delegate. Join this informative webinar to find out what they are and how to kick them to the curb.

Successful delegation requires a key ingredient – without it, delegation is impossible. Attend this session for valuable tips on how to grab a hold of that ingredient and delegate with confidence. Many people think delegation involves dropping a project on someone else. It’s much more than that and can benefit a manager and the employee in many ways. There is an over-arching benefit to organizations when leaders embrace and develop delegation skills. Participate in this session to learn how to enjoy that benefit and learn a step-by-step process to ensure effective delegation takes place. While delegation is a critical skill, so is the ability to discern what can be delegated and what can’t. The interactive format of the live webinar encourages participation through polling, short answer questions, and sharing ideas and comments through the chat function. This enables all participants to learn from each other during the session. Grab your to do list and register for this webinar to learn about the art of delegation!

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:

  • Hospice
