Advance care planning is useful for all adults, including those living with heart failure. People suffering with heart failure tend to be older and have additional illnesses. The American Heart Association recommends that everyone hospitalized for heart failure should be approached about an advance directive if they do not already have one. In this webinar we will hear from Patti Pollina, APRN, ACHPN, NP-C, clinical care practitioner with our Admissions and Transitions Optimization Program, who will discuss advance planning tools and how to have the conversation with patients.
Patti Pollina is nationally certified in family practice by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and holds advanced certification in hospice and palliative care. She has served as a palliative consultant in several Nevada hospitals.
