Register for the event

Older adults in the advanced stage of an illness or nearing the end of life may experience physical and emotional distress, fragmented care delivery, and barriers to communication. Family caregivers and others providing support may also experience challenges. Dually eligible older adults are more likely to experience frequent hospitalizations and facility-based long-term care at the end of life than other beneficiary groups.

Palliative care aims to address physical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs; coordinate care delivery; improve quality of life; optimize function; and assist with decision-making for individuals living with a serious illness and their families. It offers community-based services that are tailored to the individual.

This webinar will share strategies for communication and response to the needs of beneficiaries and their families, and engagement of palliative care consultants as an added layer of support.

Featured Speakers

  • Diane E. Meier, MD, Director, Center to Advance Palliative Care, NY
  • Isaac Bromberg MD, Medical Director, Commonwealth Care Alliance, MA
  • Karen Blair, RN, Commonwealth Care Alliance, MA
  • Family Caregiver
