AzHHA Care Improvement hosted its Introduction to POLST webinar Wednesday to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and resources to begin using POLST in Arizona.
Developing the skills necessary to have quality conversations with your seriously ill patients doesn’t always come naturally. We provide evidence-based workshops to empower the care team to have these difficult conversations by providing them with easy-to-implement, proven communications strategies.
Wednesday’s webinar participants learned to define the population for POLST, when to begin the conversation and who completes POLST, describe the process for completing, reviewing and updating POLST, and learned the process of submitting healthcare planning documents to the Arizona Healthcare Directive Registry.
Arizona POLST will host its next webinar September 17. To view upcoming events, click here. Email [email protected] for more information.
