Webinar Series: Is Your Organization Conversation Ready?
Session 1 || The Conversation Project: Reaching People Where They Live, Work and Play
This year, National Healthcare Decisions Day, is a weeklong event to help people across the U.S. understand the value of advance healthcare planning. Many people have not expressed their wishes for what they want when the end is close. In September 2011, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) helped launch “The Conversation Project,” an initiative co-founded by Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Goodman. It is a public engagement campaign to make sure that each individual’s wishes for end-of-life care are expressed and respected. On April 18, National Healthcare Decisions Day, FHA was excited to announce a partnership with the IHI to provide hospitals participating in the Mission to Care (MTC) FHA Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) and FHA member hospitals with resources and training to launch community initiatives to support working with their communities and partners on having “the conversation.” The training will include a series of webinars, resources and collaboration to help hospitals work with their communities on an initiative to support efforts to express wishes for end-of-life care. This initiative is funded by the MTC FHA HIIN, and is open to those participating hospitals and to FHA member hospitals along with stakeholders in their communities.
