Description

Establishing a formalized palliative care program involves three critical pieces: providing education, using a team approach and assessing for the five domains of pain (physical, social, familial, psychiatric and emotional pains). It involves caring for the whole person, not just his or her physical needs. In this webinar, Sr. M. Peter Lillian, O.Carm., who is director of the Avila Institute of Gerontology, will describe the model of care being implemented by the facilities sponsored, co-sponsored or served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. Too, she will discuss how to achieve a sustainable Palliative Care program in long-term care including best practices and overcoming barriers.

Objectives

After participating in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the four elements of a palliative care program: education, assessment, teamwork and reevaluation

  • Understand how culture change and palliative care are related

  • Implement and sustain a palliative care program

Who Should Attend

  • Mission and spiritual care leaders

  • LTC administrators

  • LTC board members

  • LTC Nurses

  • Sponsors of systems that have LTC facilities

  • Other Clinicians
