Description

With the aging population growing, the people residing in skilled nursing facilities are among the frailest of the population and have the greatest needs in terms of activities of daily living. These alone are predictors of mortality. Upfront discussions with patients and/or their health care power of attorney can ensure that team members providing care understand the wishes of the patient. These discussions help facilitate patient autonomy, access to information and choice. This allows healthcare providers to treat the patient appropriately based on individualized goals of care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate Knowledge of the characteristics of the long-term care population.
  • Understand how goals of the care conversations help improve quality of life for patients.
  • Learn appropriate use of POLST forms in documenting goals of care discussions.
