Learning and acting upon what patients truly want and need are core elements of all care transitions efforts. Addressing advance care planning with chronically ill patients through structured palliative care programs can reduce readmissions and improve quality of life. Patient engagement can be improved when tools such as the CMS checklist, that openly welcome and encourage involvement from patients and caregivers, are implemented. This webinar is designed to provide teams with useful information about palliative care and the CMS discharge planning checklist that can be immediately applied in their organizations.
Target Audience: Multi-disciplinary team members working to reduce readmissions, palliative care teams, admitting and registration staff, nursing personnel, case managers, and discharge planners.
