4/19/2022

This ECHO is by invite only as part of a pilot research project. If your clinic has agreed to participate in this project, please register for this program. 

This 7-session ECHO series is designed to help primary care clinicians and their team members: 1) support patient-centered healthcare planning and decision making by people living with dementia (PWD) and their family care partners  and 2) implement and track ACP for PWD in your practice. 

Topics will include:

  • Facilitating serious illness conversations with persons living with dementia and family care partners
  • Identifying patients and families who would benefit from serious illness conversations
  • Navigating family dynamics, conflicts, and expectations 
  • Systematic approaches to enhance serious illness conversations with PWD (e.g., team roles; documentation of conversations for communication and billing)
  • Strategies to implement and sustain serious illness conversations with PWD in your clinic (e.g., customizing workflows)
  • Implementing serious illness conversations with PWD in your clinic and scaling up
