Taking care of someone at the end of life is different than taking care of someone who is going to get better. Most people don’t understand this and aren’t familiar with the particular goals of end-of-life care.

CONTENT

Taking care of someone at the end of life is different than taking care of someone who is going to get better. Most people don’t understand this and aren’t familiar with the particular goals of end-of-life care. If we don’t teach people the difference, our end-of-life work will be judged by the wrong standard  – by the standard of recovery. In this important and engaging webinar, Barbara Karnes, RN, draws on her forty years of experience as an award-winning hospice nurse, agency administrator, educator, and thought leader to talk about the critical role education plays in the care that we provide at the end of life.

 

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify the challenges in end of life education and understand the need to maintain consistency in knowledge and educational programming across agencies
  2. Emphasize the importance to patients and families of receiving high quality, clear, compassionate and honest information in an easily accessible format
  3. Highlight the role of quality education in raising CAHPS scores and other satisfaction measures
  4. Share educational materials and describe how to most effectively use them
