HCSSA Topic(s) Addressed: §558.259[d][4]agency responsibilities §558.260[a][8]skills for working with clients, families, and other professional service providers Program Description: Transitions in care would seem on the surface to be a "non-issue" in hospice medicine, but with increasing complexity and segmentation of care for the seriously ill, patients often enter hospice from the acute care system with unrealistic expectations of what is needed and what will be provided. Often unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations result, as well as demands for services not part of the standard hospice plan of care. This program explores not only addressing the expectations of patients and their families, but also addressing the increasing expectations of payers. A vision for the future of optimal care of the seriously ill is presented, acknowledging the daunting steps needed for the evolution of a hospice organization towards a "full service" model, as our organizations enter into a time of increased demand, regulatory uncertainty, quality-based scrutiny, and fiscal constraint. Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change their practice by incorporating effective communication strategies and comprehensive care plans to avoid unnecessary transitions of care.
