Pre-Conference Sessions

Leadership Training

This workshop will cover key topics surrounding leadership in today’s healthcare workforce. When building high performance teams, great leaders are considering the layers that affect group success. Healthcare professionals often excel when managing time, but not necessarily when it comes to managing energy. How are you considering burnout potential in the breakdown of responsibilities on your team? Alternatively, what builds your staff up? How do we factor in different individual motivations when working toward the common goal of serving our patients? In matrix, interdisciplinary teams, we must find strength in both our differences and similarities. As a leader, you want to consider challenges and strategies in the context of implicit bias, always keeping diversity, equity and inclusion at the forefront. By attending this workshop, you will challenge the assumptions you have about leadership, explore new strategies for management and supervision, and build confidence in your own authority.

      

Multicomplexity in the Home: Training Our Teams and Learners to See Strengths in Patients and Community

This session will focus on reframing approaches for assessing and addressing the impact of social drivers of health (SDOH) for complex homebound patients. This interactive session will include: training your interprofessional team and learners to understand how SDOH and multicomplexity intersect and impact homebound adults, strategies to reframe SDOH to identify strengths and resources in the home and community, teaching and training tools for our teams and trainees, and approaches to build community partnerships.

Value Based Care

Presenters are busy developing a 2.0 to last year's successful Value-Based Care for Frail Seniors which helped learners understand how to take a population health approach to improving patient outcomes that ultimately can lead to financial success in value-based payment environments. It touched upon patient selection, risk stratification, visit cadence, field team makeup, centralized shared services, care modalities and clinical services. Additionally, it discussed the varying importance of quality, documentation and medical expense reduction depending upon contract type.
