FR9 - Perceptions That Impact Person-Centered End-of-Life Care: How Providers and Staff Help Patients Discover Meaning and Ease Suffering


Mar 8, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 8, 2019 12:00pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

In this session, presenters will discuss the impact of perceptions regarding the efficacy of treatments, achievable goals, survival rates (especially for CPR), the impact of shifting from aggressive interventions to comfort care, and the resultant fear of making choices that “cause” a loved one’s death. It also will explore the words we use to talk about death and dying, including common phrases such as “the good fight” and “comfort care,” which can mean something different to each person. With multiple examples of lines of inquiry to facilitate meaningful dialogue around these difficult topics, attendees will receive information they can immediately integrate into their practice setting. This session will include interactive activities and thought-provoking videos to help you discover and honor a person’s wishes for person-centered end-of-life care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explore how communication and specific words or phrases impact decision-making.
  • Discuss the influence of perceptions on end-of-life decisions.
  • Increase awareness of personal values, beliefs, and perceptions to engage in end-of-life conversations with patients, residents, and families.
