For the third year in a row, HealthInsight and local community partners are hosting a collaborative community event to promote end of life care awareness and the importance of communicating. Patients, families, researchers, providers, policymakers, payers and the local community are invited to this event to participate in interactive presentations and discussions. We will address end of life care issues in Utah and encourage community member input on planning conversations, addressing communication barriers, and fostering alliances between patients and providers.
End of life care conversations enable families to make better decisions and foster trusted alliances between patients, caregivers, and providers. At the end of this conference, attendees will:
- Understand how end of life care is treated in current health settings and payment reimbursement models.
- Know effective practices that encourage advance care planning conversations and shared decision making between health care professionals and patient/families.
- Appreciate the need and purpose for an accessible and shared POLST registry.
- Learn how caregivers and family members can access cognitive impairment resources with increased awareness to provide education on cognitive impairment, assessments, and expected outcomes.
