March 29, 2017
William & Ida Friday Center, Chapel Hill, NC
We were over 100 strong at The Friday Center in Chapel Hill on March 29th! And as of Monday morning, more than half of the participants had made these comments about the AIM Summit and presenters:
Evaluations are also identifying:
1. Ensuring better care to Pediatric patients
2. Working with advanced illness planning and pain management
3. I will use this information as a reference for when I evaluate patients to determine appropriateness of treatment in the sense of palliation rather than curative and to best equip patient to actually live and experience life rather than just being kept alive
4. Exploring and pushing forward for palliative care in home.
5. Piloting a new Community Palliative Care Program.
1. Creating bridges between home health and hospice for those inbetween patients.
2. Community engagement strategies for increasing utilization of the MOST form across venues of care.
3. Intermediate level information on tracking outcomes and financial benefit
4. In depth updated billing information for palliative care
5. I believe it is a need to invite people from other States, countries or cultures to share experiences that respond to other models and realities in order to help people think outside of the box.
6. Pediatric Palliative Care initiatives/best practice
7. Educating non-palliative providers educating the public to advocate for themselves
8. Pain management
9. A session on alternative and complementary methods to ease symptoms and pain (and also, perhaps, how to pay for them).
10. How patient and family advisors and councils are best practice as one way to bridge the gap between systems and community, and move palliative care upstream for all chronic disease, not cancer care only.
11. Building Community Based Palliative Care Programs Building Partnerships with Institutes of Higher Learning
12. Community partnerships with other providers and community at large.
