Interprofessional Education (IPE) Training in Simulation with SP
Limited Enrollment – To enroll in the training, please contact Dr. Dounis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Geriatric health care for older adults with chronic complex conditions is unique and is best served by a team of health care professionals. A team of 5-6 health professionals with different disciplines will participate in this IPE training held in the UNLV Simulation Center to learn about the practice of interprofessional health care assessments for a standardized patient (SP) who is performing as an older adult patient. Enrollment and pre-registration/survey are required to attend the training. Training participants will review two PowerPoints of educational lessons prior to the simulation training.
Instructor/Facilitator: Georgia Dounis, DDS, MS, FICD, School of Dental Medicine, University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Seminar: Advance Care Planning
The seminar will stress the importance of advance care planning for everyone, especially as we age. It will highlight issues for patients, families, caregivers, and providers to consider in order to determine what values and preferences should guide decisions about end-of-life care. It will also introduce some advance care planning tools, including powers of attorney for health care decisions and living wills, that can help establish these preferences.
Speaker: Max Gakh, JD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor based at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) School of Public Health and the Associate Director of the UNLV Health Law Program. His work, which includes research, teaching, and service, centers on how laws and policies shape the health of communities.
Workshop: What is MIPS in Health Care?
(Merit-Based Incentive Payment System)
MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System) is a system for value-based reimbursement under the Quality Payment Program (QPR) with the goal of promoting the ongoing improvement and innovation to clinical activities. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began MIPS in 2017 and applies payment adjustment by 4% on reimbursement in 2019. Most primary care providers in UNLV Medicine participate in MIPS. This workshop will introduce MIPS measures in primary care, especially, for older adults: Advance Care Plan, High-Risk Medication Use, Opioid Misuse, Dementia Caregiver Burden, Diabetes, and Fall and Its Risk.
