Target Audience • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Physician Assistants • Social Workers • Counselors • Case Managers • Chaplains • Clergy Course Description: Eleanor is an 83-year-old widowed lady with known chronic heart failure and advanced dementia. She is now hospitalized with a significant stroke and dysphagia. She does not have a healthcare directive and had never discussed what she would want, other than staying at home until she dies. She is full code. Her family still wants resuscitation attempted. Her children admit they are concerned about what is best for their mother. What are options for Eleanor and her family? Would she benefit from artificial hydration and nutrition? How is she going to receive medications? Can some of her medications be discontinued? Who is going to be her caregiver? In this compelling seminar, multiple case studies like Eleanor's will provide you with examples that you can incorporate when care is more important than cure. To deliver expert, holistic care, healthcare professionals need to have a toolbox full of new interventions to promote quality care at the end of life. Have you ever been asked, "what would you do if this was your family member?" Learn conversation options to use while staying neutral.
