Webinar for Healthcare Professionals: Dementia Care at the End of Life
To share the clinical end-of-life expertise we have developed since 1978, VITAS Healthcare offers free webinars by experienced hospice professionals to educate on the benefits of hospice.
Leveraging published studies in healthcare literature, this webinar educates professionals on the factors that qualify Alzheimer’s and dementia patients as hospice-eligible, and how Alzheimer’s disease differs from dementia.
Attendees will learn to define the most common etiologies of dementia and identify complications that are associated with a prognosis of 6 months or less.
The webinar will also examine the value of advance care planning including the CPT codes for professional billing.
