Accreditation The American Medical Directors Association (AMDA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Designation Statement: The American Medical Directors Association designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
AMDCP Credit Designation: This session has been approved for a total of 1 Clinical credit hours toward certification as a Certified Medical Director in Long Term Care (CMD).
Session Description: There is little in the literature that talks about when a physician is the physician in charge of a loved one in the long term care setting. Previous sessions have had speakers relate their experiences, but they haven't provided concrete tips or suggestions for when a relative has to be admitted to a nursing home or assisted living community. This presentation will use many humorous stories from the speakers' experience caring for his father (an internist himself) as he went from home alone to an assisted living community to a nursing home, unfortunately ending at his death at age 91 to help others face similar adventures.
Describe ways to provide excellent care to one's own family in the LTC setting.
Translate experiences of caring for loved ones to taking better care of other patients.
Discuss the importance of caring for yourself while taking care of a loved one in the nursing home.
