Target Audience:  NHA, RN, LPN, AD, DM, RD/DTR, SW
CE Approved:  NHA (3 hours; Patient Care)
Program:  Registration 8:30 a.m., Program 9 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Purpose:  Why is there such a disconnect for patients and families receiving the kind of care they say they want with what they actually get during the final stages of illness? Are there ways to improve outcomes and match patient preference without denying patient care?

1.  Explore tools, skills, resources and guides that help providers identify better work flows.
2. Clarify important distinctions in illness trajectories.
3.  Identify the right questions to elicit patient goals.
4.  Utilize new payment mechanisms and collaborate with EMS and other providers in protecting patients’ wishes throughout the continuum of care.

Speaker:  John Carney, MEd, President & CEO of the Center for Practical Bioethics and/or Susan C. Fry, BSN, MEd, RN, Kansas City, Missouri
