Optimize Outcomes Through Patient Engagement
This is an ON DEMAND webinar.
More than any procedure, pharmaceutical or supplement, patients themselves harness the most power to create change in their own health and wellness. The secret is how to unlock that power — and in turn create the dynamic change that can increase adherence, boost well-being, and cut health care costs as a result of a healthier, more prevention-oriented patients.
The publisher of Case In Point, Case In Point Weekly and the Case Management Resource Guide brings together a faculty of leading experts to share their insight on the growing and exciting practice of patient activation. This 90-minute training session will focus on the tenets of patient activation, the best way to turn the theory into practice, and the important role that case managers, health coaches and other professionals play in activating the best, most mindful and healthiest portion that each and every one of our patients has to offer.
Attend from your desktop or conference room. Invite your whole team to attend at one low price of $329 per location. Each registration comes with access to the archived version of the program and the materials until December 31, 2011.
Continuing education credits have been applied for nurses, case managers and disability management specialists.
About the Webinar
Today, physicians, health care coaches, case managers, disease/population health management employers, and others involved in containing health care costs attest to the challenges faced in engaging individuals in their health. Too often, clinically sound guidance is provided, patients seemingly understand what they need to do, and yet for many individuals behaviors remain unchanged over time despite significant risk to their health.
Without a systematic way to assess patient capabilities for self-management, health care professionals in medical management programs often apply a largely one-size-fits-all evidence-based approach. Yet as we know, patients bring differing levels of knowledge, skill and confidence to the task of managing their health. The Patient Activation Measure® addresses this challenge.
The Webinar will provide first-hand information from a team of professionals with expertise on how new science allows the health care team to identify degrees of patient activation based upon the skills, knowledge and confidence essential to effective self-management.
With this information, health care professionals can meet patients where they are and tailor support to an individual’s self-management competency, demonstrating a positive impact on patient health and outcomes, including reduction in hospitalization improvement in medication adherence and quality of life.
