Very detailed and informative education from Carolyn Cuttino of Corstrata! Wound Care is not something that Hospice & Palliative Care providers have routinely focused on when providing care for their patients and families. Yet 30% of all Hospice patients have wounds, given the prominence of wounds at end of life, hospice providers must provide a holistic, evidence-based approach for symptom management - infection, pain, wound odor, exudate - and wound improvement for improving quality of life for patients and their families.
This excellent session from Melinda Gaboury of Healthcare Provider Solutions will allow Hospice staff members to get a look at adjustments that are currently being rolled out in hospice that effect how the hospice gets paid and are linked to clinical decisions. This session will also assist in evaluating the documentation required for hospice charts to pass medical review by third party reviewers. This is a must hear session, especially for clinical staff looking for more financial understanding.
