Tuesday, February 21, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
People today are living longer than at any point in history thanks to new advances in medicine. This also means many Americans are living longer with serious illnesses… for years, or even decades. We are now seeing an increasing need and demand for palliative care.
In this webinar you will join Dr. Steven Pantilat as he explores how palliative care teams can use a population health approach in making proactive decisions to identify and address the needs of people with serious illness in all settings.
1 CEU included for nurses, social workers, and chaplains.
Webinar participants will be able to:
Describe the benefits, challenges and barriers to high-quality care of people with serious illness
Discuss strategies for overcoming barriers and challenges for providing palliative care to people with serious illness
Describe how healthcare institutions and systems can implement palliative care services across the continuum of care including outpatient and home to increase the value of health care
