Description

Have you heard of the $16.5 million-dollar case where a physician and the hospital failed to follow a patient's advance directives? Advance care planning is vital for practitioners to comprehend because it reduces readmissions, promotes better end-of-life care, provides reimbursement, and reduces the risk of medical malpractice. In fact, CMS requires hospitals to provide an advance directive policy to inpatients, observation outpatients, ED outpatients, and same-day surgery outpatients.

This program will cover the CMS hospital CoPs and TJC standards on advance directives, patient rights, case laws, and federal laws related to advance directives. Our expert will go over living wills, durable power of attorney, organ donation, mental health declaration, patient advocates, do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders, and patient representatives such as DPOA, support persons, parents, and guardians. Additionally, our expert will provide tools you need for asking patients about end of life wishes, IHI Conversation Starter Kit, Criteria for Screening and Triaging to Appropriate alternative care (CriSTAL) toolkit for identifying dying patients, and resources on advanced care planning.
