Supportive Care at Oak Street Health

May 2, 2023 to May 25, 2023
With its stated objective to address the health needs of older adults in Chicago through training healthcare professionals who treat geriatric patients, the SHARE (Southside Healthy Aging Resource Experts) Network is collaborating with Oak Street Health (OSH) to increase the capacity of OSH providers to engage patients in quality advance care planning and other topics related to caring for seriously ill patients. The current intervention will be a series of ten one-day training sessions that target clinicians to build competencies in goals-of-care discussions, advance care planning, and referral to supportive care for seriously ill patients, especially those approaching end-of-life. By equipping providers with skills to engage patients in these discussions, the intervention will improve providers’ understanding of patient goals, values, and wishes and align the care provided with what matters most to their patients. Furthermore, the ability to engage in difficult conversations will support ongoing quality care throughout the patient’s life cycle and increase referrals to palliative care and hospice services, programs underutilized by many marginalized and underserved communities.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for Oak Street Health clinicians, dedicated to high-quality care of geriatric patients throughout the patient’s life.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Recall appropriate community-based resources for seriously ill patients;
  • Recognize supportive care (palliative and hospice) as a tool for reducing preventable acute care admissions for seriously ill patients;
  • Identify seriously ill patients who are appropriate candidates for palliative or hospice care services;
  • Describe the benefits that palliative care and hospice can provide to seriously ill patients/and their caregivers;
  • Demonstrate communication skills and principles to apply with patients and their caregivers regarding advance care planning, goals of care, and supportive care options.
