Webinar: CMS Revised Surveyor Guidance: Advance Directives & Advance Care Planning

Date: Will be posted at a later date

Webinar Description:

At the end of last year, CMS released new surveyor guidance for Advance Directives & Advance Care Planning. The interpretive guidance was extensive in this area. Traditionally, questions of care have been resolved at the bedside through decision-making by an individual, his or her family and health care practioner. As technological advances have increased the ability of medicine to prolong life, questions have arisen concerning the use, withholding, or withdrawing of increasingly sophisticated medical interventions. Legal developments have influenced standards of professional practice in the care and treatment of indivduals in health care facilities. Several decades of professional debate and discussion have simultaneously advanced the thinking on these matters and promoted implementation of pertinent appoaches to obtaining and acting on patient/resident wishes. In this webinar, Cat will be covering all of the changes/revisions, and the implications for facilities. Cat will also provide examples of defiencient practice and determination of compliance (scope and severity), so that your facility and staff can be prepared for this new challenge.
