On Friday, February 21, 2020, join your colleagues in Deadwood to facilitate communication and cultivate collaboration among South Dakota health care providers. Participants will learn how to identify the medical risk of a patient, their vulnerability to adverse outcomes and the appropriateness of their goals and expectations, through the evidence-based metric, frailty. Frailty is the best metric for determining risk thus framing a truly person-centered plan of care. As a patient’s frailty becomes more severe, it is important for clinicians to deliver palliative care focused on relief of discomfort and optimal quality of life. There will be an overview of palliative care and interventions and impacts across the continuum will be discussed. In closing, participants will engage in an open dialogue with the presenters and their colleagues on the topic of frailty and palliative care.
This educational event is geared towards Physician & Care Continuum Providers (Hospital, Nursing Home, Home Health & Hospice). Continuing Education Credits are available for physicians, nursing home administrators and social worker.
Speaking at this event are Dr.Steven Buslovich, MD, MSHCPM, the Assistant Clinical Professor at University of Buffalo School of Medicine and Dr. Andrea Baier, MD, the Medical Director, Palliative Care and Hospice at Monument Health.
