No two hospice patients are the same. Learn the challenges and solutions that define hospice care, ranging from fall prevention and wound care to protocols for patients who are dual-eligible for hospice or who are in a persistent vegetative state.
Explore the unique-to-VITAS care protocols and resources that can define compassionate hospice care and meet patients’ and families’ preferences for end-of-life care in their final months, weeks and days of life.
Respiratory Symptoms in the Terminally Ill Patient
The goal of this webinar is to educate healthcare professionals on interventions for cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and the “death rattle” in patients with end-of-life respiratory symptoms.
Fall Prevention for Elderly Populations
Why are falls so prevalent among the elderly? Why are fall-related deaths more likely? What can be done to prevent falls?
Managing a Dual-Eligible Population
Managing Dual-Eligible patients, who utilize more healthcare services than those on Medicare alone, is an important goal of healthcare providers. Appropriate use of hospice and palliative care services improves the quality and cost of healthcare for Dual-Eligible patients who are nearing the end of life.
Persistent Vegetative State
The goal of this webinar is to help healthcare professionals develop an understanding of when end-of-life care may be appropriate for Persistent Vegetative State patients.
