Improving End-of-Life Care in the ICU: Challenges and Opportunities (Presented by the Cleveland Clinic and Implemented by EVIMED)
October 6 - November 23, 2021
For patients and their loved ones, no care decisions are more profound than those made near the end-of-life. Unfortunately, the experience of dying in the United States and abroad is often characterized by fragmented care, inadequate treatment of distressing symptoms, frequent transitions among care settings, and enormous care responsibilities for caregivers as reported in Dying in America: Improving Quality and Honoring Individual Preferences Near the End of Life. (1) The authors stress that death is not a strictly medical event. Ideally, health care for those nearing the end-of- life harmonizes with the social, psychological, and spiritual support needs of the dying patient as well as the physical needs.
In this course, learners will be presented with various strategies to develop a patient-centered framework in the ICU for critically ill patients and their loved-ones facing end-of-life decisions. The importance of multidisciplinary team-based care will be stressed. Across the seven interactive modules, practicing critical care physicians and other faculty experts will discuss the many complex aspects of end-of-life care addressing the many special challenges that patients dying in the ICU present. They will offer practical ways on how to create a new culture which strives to coordinate care and respects the often difficult, emotionally-charged choices of patients and their loved-ones.
