Through six weekly sessions led by national experts with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and The Conversation Project, participants will learn about:

  • Reliably stewarding advance care planning information across the health care system, including strategies for working with electronic health records.
  • Engaging communities that help to activate the public in having these conversations in advance of a potential medical crisis.
  • Making use of CMS reimbursement for advance care planning conversations.

Health care providers (primary care, hospital-based, palliative care, elder care, nursing home, long-term care, skilled nursing facility or hospice care), health system leaders, social workers, chaplains and other clinical staff are all invited to participate and learn tools to address advance care planning in their role. Physicians, nurses and pharmacists can earn up to 6.5 CEU credits.

The weekly series will begin mid-March and include six sessions, each lasting 1 to 1.5 hours. Final dates will be determined based on the availability of those who are interested. To learn more or register, email info@speakeasyhoward.org
