About the Webconference
As the US population ages, and pressures from risk-based contracting increase, hospitals and health systems are turning to palliative care as a winning strategy for cutting costs and improving quality. However, many organizations are reaching the limits of their specialist-driven, inpatient-only models.
Progressive institutions have found that there is more value to be gained through new models of care, such as equipping the broader medical staff to provide palliative care and expanding palliative care services across the continuum of care.
This webconference presents next-generation strategies for achieving full value from palliative care through four imperatives:
- Promoting generalist palliative care skills
- Implementing team-based palliative care support
- Determining strategic goals for outpatient expansion
- Selecting the optimal cross-continuum palliative care model
