Palliative care is a rapidly growing medical specialty which aims at improving quality of life for persons with serious illnesses and their families, as per a CAPC report, which further states that “the timing, demand and opportunity to expand access to palliative care services are unprecedented”, especially since a growing number of aging Americans face serious and chronic diseases, leading to greater pressure on public and private healthcare markets to provide high quality care.
Palliative care is emerging as an underutilized tool in the care delivery toolbox as there is increased pressure to provide quality care while driving quality outcomes. There are several key areas of opportunity to work together to reorganize how services are delivered and to reach more patients. In this session, expert speaker Gloria A. Turner will provide an overview of the latest trends, data and insights in palliative care. In addition, she will identify key barriers to access of palliative care services and recommendations. She will provide sample elements of a comprehensive community needs assessment, provide helpful publications and website links. She will also review several key legislative laws that are being introduced into the national healthcare policy. She will also share delivery model case studies and highlight opportunities for you to become more involved in policy and healthcare reform in 2018.
You will learn the most recent trending information which may help guide your organization in decision making and adding palliative care services to your programs or help direct you to which type of palliative care program would be the most appropriate for your market. The discussion will include important community data to support your decision making. Gloria will also provide an overview of the important elements required for executing a strong community assessment strategy. She will also overview key areas that may be barriers to executing a palliative care program. In addition, she will share the new palliative care bills being introduced and information about federal health policy.
You will be able to implement an effective community needs assessment to help guide decisions about new palliative care programs. In addition, staffing insights will help you determine your potential investment in resources, workforce development and challenges. You will also enhance your knowledge base as you engage in discussions about palliative care integrating into new payment models and alternative payment models (APM’s). This session may help you strategically plan your service strategy for your market.
