Goal- Concordant Care: The intersection Between Drugs and Disease for Those with Serious Illness
May 13 @ 11:45 am – 12:45 pm
Hospice and Palliative care have long sought to establish the goals necessary to an individual’s care. Recently the National Academy of Medicine’s proposed goal-concordant care has been used as a quality measure. This presentation explores how clinicians, administrators, and patients apply the concepts of goal concordant care. By discussing advance care directives and exploring drug therapies, patients with serious illnesses can define what is important to them and their loved ones. Program participants will look at case studies to follow the path of drug change while understanding the complexity and controversies around various therapies. Develop your understanding of the drug delivery process in goal-concordant care and identify the obstacles while also realizing the positive impact of listening to our patients’ wishes.
