Description

Health care providers are accustomed to focusing on patients in clinical decision-making, but in the PA/LTC setting providers must also consider the setting specific issues. This hands-on workshop focuses on the physician/NP as the leader and change agent. Using cases on common topics (infection management, pain, falls, depression/dementia/delirium, acute change in condition), the workshop helps providers to diagnose and treat the interplay between providers, patient, family members, and facility-specific/cultural factors in the quest to achieve regulatory compliance and excellent outcomes. We will discuss the recommendations from the Society’s clinical practice guidelines and attending physician competencies when appropriate. The key principles of shared decision-making, interprofessional collaborative practice, and the commitment required to achieve the best outcomes in PA/LTC will be emphasized.

Learning Objectives:

  • Utilize shared decision-making in challenging cases in PA/LTC.
  • Describe the importance of being available, committed, and knowledgeable about PA/LTC practice.
  • Explain the identification and management of an acute change in condition.
  • Explain the identification and management of common geriatric syndromes.
