About this Webinar for Healthcare Professionals

In the fast-paced ED, time is often limited for ACP conversations.

Attendees will learn to rapidly assess and identify hospice eligibility in patients with advanced illness who could benefit from ACP and timely transitions to end-of-life care in their preferred setting. Explore multiple approaches to initiate condensed, effective goals-of-care conversations that support transitions to hospice services.

Continuing education credit is available to nurses (RN, LPN, LVN; in California Registered Nurses only), social workers and certified case managers, as well as licensed nursing home administrators in the states of Florida and Illinois.

Attendees can earn one CE hour. See below for full certification information and instructions.
