THE LEARNER WILL BE ABLE TO:
1. Know and understand mitigation strategies that will reduce readmission and ED visit rates.
2. Learn patient perspectives on tactics to improve the patient and care partner transfer experience.

USE TOMORROW:
Analyze your handoff process for dialysis patients across the continuum of care.

SUMMARY:
Recent flooding created a multitude of challenges for Kentucky nursing homes. Join our conversation as three administrators share their first-hand experience-based emergency preparedness plans (EPP) recommendations.

Pain in Transition: Appropriate and Effective Pain Management With Opioids

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) has claimed nearly 500,000 lives in the last two decades. With accidental overdoses identified as the U.S. leading cause of death for people under age 50, the statistics are overwhelming.

Local communities are addressing the opioid crisis by filling the gaps related to an individual’s social determinants of health (SDoH) risks.  These determinants, which include socioeconomic and environmental factors, as well as individual health-related behaviors, are responsible for approximately 80% of health outcomes. Addressing the SDoH can help to prevent opioid addiction and decrease overall overdose deaths, while improving the lives of individuals with OUD.

This presentation will define key concept relationships, explore evidence-based practices and share how case managers can utilize SDoH to improve patient care related to opioid use disorder.

Learner Outcomes:

The learner will be able to:

  1. Understand the key terms of “social determinants of health” and “opioid epidemic” and their impact on healthcare.
  2. Explore the relationship between social determinants of health and the opioid epidemic
  3. Review current literature for evidence-based practices related to use of social determinants of health to address the opioid epidemic.

Identify the role of the professional case manager in managing patients with opioid use disorder.

“Get Back on Track with Routine Vaccines” is the focus of National Immunization Month. Join us as we talk about current guidance, documentation, energizing your teams for a successful campaign, and elevating the importance of vaccination status in patient/resident transfer documentation.

This event awards ANCC Contact Hours to participants.

Following this session, participants will have a better sense for what works and what doesn’t when it comes to the patient/caregiver perspective on discharges.

Join us for this discussion with Peg, a semi-retired nurse and valued member of the Alliant Health Solutions Beneficiary and Family Advisory Council, as she shares her lived experience first as a patient and shortly after as a care partner. Learn about what’s in our readmission reduction toolkit and obtain resources to engage patients and support safe transitions.

This event awards ANCC Contact Hours to participants.

Readmissions on the rise? Learn from a Patient Advisory Coordinator and a Patient and Family Advisor strategies and project ideas for engaging patient and family advisors in readmission prevention and reduction initiatives.

At the conclusion of the sessions, participants will be able to:

1. Define and understand the importance of patient voice inclusion – specifically involving an organized Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) in decisions involving patient-facing materials and processes
2. Learn specific ways PFAC involvement can contribute to readmission reduction in hospital settings
