Hoping for the Best, Planning for the Worst as We Age - CEU Event

Thursday 08/09/2018 08:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Belmont Village of Buffalo Grove
500 McHenry Road, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089

Speaker: Teri Dreher
Our speaker is an experienced RN as well as a board certified Professional Patient Advocate who has seen calamity up close and personally over the four decades and shares strategies for optimal physical, emotional and psychological success when the unexpected happens. This lively presentation is full of stories and practical tips on how families can navigate an increasingly complex US healthcare system on their own behalf. Knowing what documents to have in place and how to communicate your wishes in an effective manner is essential.
At the conclusion, the audience will be able to:

• State one reason our brains “hijack” us and make us unable to make rational decisions in a medical crisis
• Name three documents that will make it more likely that patients’ wishes and rights are protected when going through an acute healthcare crisis.
• State three proven techniques that assure better communication with healthcare providers
• Learn about a surprising technology that will help assure rapid access to medical information when traveling or moving between different hospital systems
