Palliative Care Immersion Course
Our Palliative Care Immersion Course is a pillar of the Four Seasons Consulting Group’s dynamic educational experience. Having been recommended as 1 of top 10 sites for palliative care education, the Palliative Care Immersion Course is highly developed and rich in content which develops attendees’ competencies and knowledge base in palliative care.
In this modern learning environment, instructors provide didactic sessions, facilitated role play, critiques, and situational modeling of mock patient-provider interactions that will engage and challenge all levels of palliative care providers.
The course curriculum covers clinical issues of symptom management, ethics, goal setting, and communication techniques, while also helping participants develop an understanding of critical factors that impact the financial model of palliative care programs. Throughout the course, education is provided around improving sustainability through effective billing and coding, setting visit expectations, and transitioning patients to hospice.
Four Seasons Consulting Group holds the standard and expectation that participants will leave the course with significantly improved prognostication and business skills and a solid understanding of complex case management.
