2015 Educational Events in Philadelphia, PA

What

A Place for Mom's "Professionals Helping Seniors" event is an exciting networking and educational events series open to any professional or business that provides a service or product to senior citizens.

Join us on July 15, 2015 to learn how to guide your patients through hospice care. Two topics will be presented by speakers from Seasons Hospice, and contact hours will be provided for those who need them.

Topics

Determining Prognosis and Hospice Eligibility - 1.5 contact hours: This program reviews the Medicare Hospice benefit and discusses general medical and clinical findings that indicate a limited life expectancy through interactive discussions regarding potential hospice patient cases.

Ethics in Hospice and Palliative Care - 1 contact hour: By the end of this one hour session, participants will be able to: Identify the 4 basic ethical principles, distinguish the differences between law and ethics, identify when withholding or withdrawing treatment is ethically sound, recognize the benefit vs. burden of artificial hydration and nutrition, and understand the legal ramifications of terminal sedation. Learners will gain a much broader understanding of the value of the principles and issues presented as they participate in case discussion.
