Advance Care Planning and LaPOST
Talking about goals of care and end-of-life decisions with residents and caregivers in long-term care facilities can be difficult and uncomfortable at times. Still, these conversations are vital for residents, caregivers and the health care team. To support health care professionals, Susan Nelson, MD, will present a series of on-site seminars focusing on different aspects of advance care planning and the Louisiana Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (LaPOST) document.
Dr. Susan Nelson, LaPOST Coalition Chair, is board-certified in internal medicine, geriatrics and hospice and palliative medicine. She serves as Medical Director of Post-Acute Care for the Ochsner Health Network and is a Palliative Medicine Physician with Ochsner Health System. In addition, Dr. Nelson is a fellow of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and the American College of Physicians as well as an advocate for senior health. She is the vice-chair of the National Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) Paradigm.
In addition to the webinars and on-site educational sessions, you can learn about advance care planning and LaPOST with online training videos available in the LaPOST eLearning Center.
Conversations Change Lives is a web-based, video series that is available 24/7 for your in-service and/or annual training needs. Dr. Susan Nelson, LaPOST Coalition Chair, hosts the four-part series and guides you through each lesson:
