Many patients nearing death experience delirium and agitation. This presentation will define these common symptoms and review how they may be indicative of prognosis. Additionally, reversible causes, nonpharmacologic interventions, and pharmacologic interventions will be discussed. Palliative sedation will also be presented as a treatment option for refractory agitation.
Join us to learn:
Identify common changes exhibited by dying patients.
Define agitation and delirium.
Discuss nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic treatment options.
Review palliative sedation for refractory symptoms.
This webinar will cover how palliative care programs can achieve a successful accreditation survey. We will discuss pre-survey preparation, the on-site survey, and post-survey processes as well as review the value of accreditation with ACHC.
