WEBINAR – Recognizing & Overcoming Unconscious/Implicit Bias
Sep 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/recognizing-and-overcoming-unconsciousimplicit-biash

Are you biased?  If so, how do you deal with it?  If not… are you sure? 

Implicit bias is a common subconscious trait that manifests in feelings about certain populations, appearances, or mannerisms.  Although having implicit bias doesn’t mean you’re a bad person, it can interfere in your job and other situations.  The first step to addressing bias is honest self-assessment.  Once you’ve recognized it, the best approach is to constantly assess your feelings and how they impact your actions and approach.

Several studies have determined implicit bias exists in healthcare and affects the quality and equity of care.  This webinar will speak to assumptions that often trigger these feelings.  You’ll learn ways to address such issues head-on with your staff.  Open conversation removes the taboo and paves the way for better patient care and outcomes.  Since many people don’t realize they have biases, starting the dialogue and developing awareness are the first steps forward!

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Key characteristics of implicit bias
  • Understanding what assumptions trigger bias and why it matters
  • Knowing your patients and understanding cultural differences
  • Suggestions for open discussion with staff
  • Tips on defeating unconscious bias
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Useful websites
    • List of helpful books

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is designed for home health or hospice administrators, clinical managers, business development leaders, hiring managers, agency staff, and field staff, especially those who participate in direct patient and family care.

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/electronic-compliance-rules-policies-and-best-practices-for-email-social-media-mobile-and-web-management

The healthcare industry has long been aware of the pressing need for legal and regulatory compliance and the steep cost of noncompliance.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and courts often impose steep HIPAA fines and legal judgments on providers who mismanage electronic content, violate patient privacy, have inadequate record retention policies, fail to secure EPHI, or are slow to produce subpoenaed email.  Hospices and home care providers cannot afford to ignore electronic compliance rules.

This program will reveal why and how hospices and home care providers must develop and implement strategic email, social media, mobile device, and web compliance management programs that combine formal policies with employee education and reliable technology.  Consequences of noncompliance can include litigation, HIPAA fines, security breaches, malicious intruder attacks, lost productivity, business interruption, and public embarrassment.  Learn how to implement strategic electronic compliance management combining policy, training, and technology.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • How a strategic compliance management program can help anticipate and deflect legal liabilities, regulatory disasters, security breaches, and other electronic risks
  • Best practices to ensure legal, regulatory, and organizational compliance
  • Why and how you must preserve, protect, and produce electronic business records
  • Creating effective email, web, social media, and mobile device policies
  • Conducting an annual e-policy audit
  • Best practices to manage content, use, records, and risks
  • The 3Es of electronic compliance management
  • Enforcing e-policies at work, home, and on the road
  • Tips for effective e-policy training
  • Supporting policy with best-in-class technology tools
  • Monitoring rules:  reconciling privacy expectations with legal realities
  • Real-life electronic disaster stories
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Fact Sheet: Netiquette Rules
    • Tip Sheet: Writing Effective Email:  Communications Channels Best Practices

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is a must for human resources managers, lawyers, compliance officers, IT directors, privacy officers, directors, administrators, and others responsible for electronic policy and compliance management.  It will also benefit anyone who communicates via email, social media, mobile devices, or the web.

WEBINAR – A Compassionate Approach to Pediatric End-of-Life Care: Blending the Art & Science of End-of-Life Care
Sep 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/a-compassionate-approach-to-pediatric-end-of-life-care-blending-the-art-and-science-of-end-of-life-care

The pediatric interdisciplinary team has the privilege of being involved in end-of-life care for children and their families.  To ensure the ability to deliver expert, compassionate care at the end of a child’s life, it is essential that the care team has expertise in both the art and science of end-of-life care.

The death of child, whether expected or unexpected, is a complicated, emotional experience for the dying child, family, and healthcare team.  End-of-life care and discussions are not usually part of nursing or medical training.  This webinar will provide an understanding of the end-of-life journey and ways the interdisciplinary care team can facilitate a “good death”; care for and support the family through this emotional journey; and help the grieving team throughout and after the child’s death.  Join us to learn applicable concepts, tools, and care delivery models that will facilitate your ability to provide expert, compassionate care at the end of life.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Developing an interdisciplinary care plan that addresses the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural needs of the dying child and family
  • Interventions that can be incorporated into the plan of care to facilitate the grief process
  • How to prevent or diminish distressing symptoms a dying child may experience
  • Supporting and caring for the grieving team
  • Pediatric palliative care versus end-of-life care
  • Ways the care team can incorporate effective and meaningful communication in end-of-life care
  • Care at the time of death – the art of being present
  • Incorporating complementary and expressive therapies into end of life care

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This session is best suited for doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, therapists, child life specialists, creative arts therapists, social workers, chaplains, volunteers, and nursing assistants.
