Welcome to the Minnesota Society of Medical Assistants
UPCOMING EVENTS
CEU Opportunity

Join us on Monday December 14th at 6:30 PM in ZOOM to learn more about “Advance Care Planning"

 

Presentation Description: During the presentation we will discuss Advance Care Planning.  Details will be discussed as to why advance care planning is important, how to pick a health care agent and discuss goals of care. We will discuss different communication methods to assist patients in completing Health Care Directive. My goal for participants is to have a better understanding of Advance Care Planning so they can have thorough discussion with their patients to complete the Health Care Directive. Participants will know what follow up is needed once the health care directive is complete. Participants will be provided with tools to share with their patients to help them complete the Health Care Directive.  

 

Presentation length: 1.5 hours

  

Presenter: Lisa Kuechle, CMA (AAMA)

  

About the Presenter: Certified Medical Assistant in varying roles for the past ten years in a multispecialty clinic. Within the past year, Lisa transitioned to the role as patient care coordinator, where one of her tasks is to meet with patients to discuss Advance Care Planning. Prior to COVID, Lisa provided, along with the other two care coordinators, informational sessions at the clinic for patients to assist them in completing health care directive. Lisa participated in a workshop through Light the Legacy Foundation to become an Advance Care Planning Facilitator.
