On Tuesday, July 26, Millennium Collaborative Care hosted a Post-Acute Care Advance Care Planning Training Session at GreenField Manor.
Having conversations with patients and families about their wishes surrounding treatment, care, and life-sustaining measures can be difficult. This session gave valuable information, skills, and tools to assist with this process.
Entitled Having Value-Based Conversations with Patients and Families, this session helped to develop the skills necessary for having quality discussions about advance care planning. It relayed a thorough understanding of the advance care planning spectrum and fundamentals of conducting effective, values-based conversations.
Also covered during this session were:
Techniques for engaging patients and families in End of Life discussions
Strategies to create patient-centered advance directives
Resources available to assist in patient engagement and planning process
