CoPs, CAHPS and Emotional Intelligence Gaps
Includes a Live Event on 08/21/2019 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Hospice Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Hospice Survey expect (and assume) expert Emotional Intelligence from all hospice personnel, with the patients and families they serve, and throughout their teamwork. Gaps exist, as evidenced in CAHPS scores and participants’ hospice experiences. In this webinar, learn how to identify and examine any lack of awareness and create plans for improvement.
Topics covered in this webinar:
- Describe what Emotional Intelligence (EI) is and discuss how regulatory requirements and quality measures (namely CoPs and CAHPS) assume hospice personnel to not only perform but excel at EI’s highest skills/competencies.
- Identify common emotional triggers inherent to providing hospice care, both for oneself and for others.
- Describe the four, sequential competencies of EI, focusing on how to turn a potentially negative encounter into an effective encounter.
- Discuss the impact of negative vs. positive EI for patients’ caregivers and family members through their bereavement, and potentially through years ahead.
