Medication management can be overwhelming for your patients living with a serious illness. This webinar series will provide an opportunity to learn more about medication regimens frequently used for patients receiving palliative care or hospice care services. Regardless of your practice setting or patient population served, it is important to weigh the risks and benefits of medication regimens as your patients progress through an illness trajectory. Please join us to discuss appropriate medication use and symptom management for patients facing a serious illness. Learn at your pace right from your office! Recordings will be available until June 30, 2019.

 
  • Part 1: Medication Appropriateness - September 19, 2018
    This program will review practical tips for ensuring your patients’ medication regimens are optimal for their needs. We will review medication selection, identifying nonessential medications, and how to safely discontinue medications for seriously ill patients. This program will also address formulary medication selection for seriously ill patients with commonly occurring symptoms.

  • Part 2: Medication Safety - December 5, 2018
    This program will briefly review and build on medication appropriateness. It will review the importance of having a formal reconciliation process for your organization to reduce patient risks, especially during transitions of care. Additionally, common survey deficiencies involving aspects of drug profiles will be identified and patient cases will be used to highlight nonessential medications and unsafe medication use at end-of-life.

  • Part 3: Pain & Symptom Management - January 30, 2019
    This program will review pain assessment and hospice quality measures surrounding pain management at end-of-life. Additionally, we will differentiate nociceptive and neuropathic pain and identify appropriate therapies based on clinician assessments. We will review formulary analgesic selection and safe opioid regimen initiation, rotation and titration. 

  • Part 4: Methadone Use at End-of-Life - March 20, 2019
    Methadone can be a challenging analgesic to work with, but it’s worth the extra effort! This webinar will provide the audience with basic information regarding methadone use for your patients with advanced pain management needs.
    This presentation will discuss the appropriate use of methadone in the hospice population. Patient case examples will be used to demonstrate dosing and monitoring strategies.
