Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/intensive-skills-training-for-hospice-social-workers-moving-beyond-emotional-support-targeted-counseling-approaches-interventions

Ensure your whole team is on the same page and move beyond “provided emotional support.” This webinar will review the critical counseling approaches and interventions that are essential for all hospice and palliative care social workers.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Discuss the critical role of social workers as counselors
  • List four theoretical frameworks that fit well with end-of-life care practice
  • Examine four common challenges social workers face when creating patient/family informed plans
  • List three methods for providing e-counseling
  • Apply concepts and skills to specific patient/family situations

WEBINAR DETAILS

How often do you read the words “provided emotional support” in team documentation? The problem is people don’t need a licensed professional to be emotionally supportive. During these times of social isolation (a devastating new normal) interventions must begin at a level that is well beyond “emotional support.” This webinar is designed to assist new and experienced hospice and palliative care social workers to “get on the same page” when it comes to critical skill sets. We begin this process by covering evidence-based counseling practices specific to end-of-life situations, goals, and anticipated outcomes. The webinar will move well beyond “supportive” interventions and focus on theoretical frameworks adapted to common and challenging situations healthcare workers face on a daily basis.

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

WEBINAR – LGBTQ+ Counseling: Finding Meaning in End-of-Life Care
May 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/lgbtq-counseling-finding-meaning-in-end-of-life-care

Ensure your agency’s level of counseling, care, and understanding for members of the LGBTQ+ community and their families creates the best possible end-of-life experience.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Differentiate supportive interventions from targeted-counseling approaches
  • Identify five situations that could present unique challenges for the LGBTQ+ community
  • Describe specific counseling approaches to address those unique situations
  • Discuss two dynamics that may interfere with obtaining truly informed consent
  • List three opportunities that may be missed when focusing specifically on “problems”
  • Describe an end-of-life process that helps LGBTQ+ community members find meaning in their experience

WEBINAR DETAILS

While the theoretical frameworks used to provide counseling to members of the LGBTQ+ community remain relatively the same, there are specific dynamics and/or life events that require skill, focus, and sensitivity. Assisting everyone with finding meaning at the end of life is an essential role for hospice workers, even more so with this underserved group. This webinar will explore the unique situations and possibilities for providing the best possible end-of-life experiences for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:

  • Hospice
  • Home Health
  • Home Care
  • Palliative Care

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session will focus on specific interventions that team members qualified to provide counseling at this level can use. However, the entire team will benefit from the insight into serving patients and families within the LGBTQ+ community.

TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT

  • Organizational assessment exercise related to caring for LGBTQ+ community members
  • “Heads-up” guide delineating common areas for concern
  • Guide demonstrating specific techniques and interventions
  • Links to additional learning opportunities
  • Handout with lecture notes

WEBINAR – Community Based Palliative Care: How to Integrate Your Program into the Community
May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/community-based-palliative-care-how-to-integrate-your-program-into-the-community

Community-based palliative care is well positioned to be the bridge across the continuum of care settings as we move to a more patient-centric healthcare system.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Identify candidates for a community-based palliative care (CBPC) program
  • Define requirements of a CBPC program
  • Discuss the value of community-based palliative care
  • Evaluate if a community needs a CBPC program
  • Identify what payer sources are requiring of CBPC programs
  • Explain the difference between hospice and palliative care and how your agency can integrate palliative care into the community

WEBINAR DETAILS

There is strong evidence proving community-based palliative care can significantly impact quality of life, resulting in more compassionate, affordable, and sustainable high-quality care, including improving hospice use. Many hospital systems have palliative care programs, but after discharge the continuation of palliative care in a community-based program continues to be a challenge.

This webinar will address the benefits and value of a community-based palliative care program, including how palliative care can serve people during a national health crisis like COVID-19. It will examine key program principles and requirements and how to identify potential integration and growth areas. Payer source opportunities for program integration will also be covered. Characteristics and best practices of CBPC programs will be reviewed to help your agency benchmark for quality, policies, and training.

Attendance certificate provided, however there are no pre-approved CEs associated with this webinar.

THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:

  • Hospice
  • Home Health
  • Palliative Care

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Any agency considering expanding their services and programs into the community with palliative care should attend. This webinar is recommended for everyone in the organization, including board members, executive management, leadership, administration, DOPCS personnel, clinical leaders, medical directors, business development teams, marketing and liaison staff, palliative care certified MDs, case managers, intake staff, quality and compliance personnel, admission team nurses, and field staff.

  • Palliative Care in the Home: A Guide to Program Design
  • Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care
  • Financing Community-Based Palliative Care
