This webinar will feature a review of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) framework for improving end-of-life care which includes five “bite-sized” practical principles. Stories from several organizations and communities will be shared about the “bites” they have taken to improve end-of-life care for the individuals they serve.
Clinics, hospitals, home health, hospice, public health, consumers and families, and all community partners who will benefit from a discussion about end-of-life issues are encouraged to attend.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the current status of end-of-life care within their organization and across their community.
- Outline strategies for engaging patients and families in conversations about end-of-life care.
- Identify resources for improving end-of-life care.
