CE Course: Patient-Centered Care at the End of Life
Featuring: April Price, RN, CHPN, Regional Director of Clinical Specialty – Hospice
Dying patients may experience feelings of grief and loss in many forms and with varying effects. As
healthcare providers it can be difficult to approach the subject of death or have confidence providing
advice and guidance through this difficult time. As a result, those seeking our counsel may not benefit
from the specialized care that partnerships can provide.
Confidently understanding and assessing each individual’s medical, spiritual and psychosocial
circumstances, while focusing on the patient’s personal preferences and goals, will help guide in
supporting those living toward death.
Following this presentation the participant will be able to:
• Confidently initiate advance planning and end-of-life conversations
• Possess the ability to design a patient-centered plan of care or treatment
• Proficiently differentiate and identify when care transitions from palliative to curative
• Possess a working knowledge of the functions and benefits of healthcare partners
