The Shape of the Visit- Hospice Case Management


Speaker:  Susan Balfour, RN,  Partner, Hospice Fundamentals- Balfour & Associates LLC

Susan Balfour's hospice career spans over thirty years and includes tenure as executive director of a free standing community based hospice and the director of clinical and regulatory affairs at a two-state hospice association.  Susan is a founding partner of Hospice Fundamentals, a company providing regulatory support and education to hospice providers across the country.  Considered a leading hospice expert, she has focused on everything to do with 'the visit'... the moment that the hospice philosophy is put into action.


Join us for a day that focuses on the visit- the interaction between patient and family and hospice staff members that translates the hospice philosophy into action.  Designed for everyone from front line IDG members to CEOs, this lively in-depth case management presentation will explore a framework based on best practices of skilled hospice team members that can simultaneously improve the experience of patients and families and provide an effective tool to manage busy and unpredictable days.  This program will also include a discussion on the use of EMRs and staff productivity.


Based on the groundbreaking 'Shape of the Visit' material, this presentation explores the four hallmarks of successful visits and case management, discusses the three stages of a visit and provides suggestions for skill development and competency evaluation. The ability to conduct an effective and efficient visit is a foundational skill for every IDG member!


Attend this new program and we promise that you'll think about hospice visits in an entirely different way!
