What If the Patient Was Sitting at Your IDG Meeting?

Recorded On: 06/15/2022

Compliant interdisciplinary group meetings are more than just reporting the patient's status. It is the coming together of the truly interdisciplinary care provided to hospice patients. The IDG meeting is intended to continually address the patient's goals, conduct anticipatory planning, and update the plan of care. If the patient were at the table, would they feel like your meeting accomplished this for them?
