Communicating Medical Marijuana to Patients and Families

New Jersey’s medicinal marijuana law has been in place for several years now and recent actions are dramatically expanding its scope and ease of use.  Nonetheless, clinicians and prospective users (patients and families) don’t know everything they should about the use of the drug.  This 90-minute webinar will explore virtually every aspect of medical marijuana’s legal uses, including the basics, the dispensary rules, patient terminology, nurse responsibility and – most importantly – communication with the patient and family. Faculty:  Susan Carson, Director, Medical Marijuana, N. J. Department of Health;  Rosie Geier, PharmD, Clinical Manager, Enclara Pharmacia;  Marisa Todd, Pharm.D., BCPS, Director of Clinical Education, Enclara Pharmacia.      1.5 nursing contact hours (pending)

Home Health Regulations Your Staff Absolutely Needs to Know

TWO-PART WEBINAR SERIES.  While the payment method for home health is changing in 2020, the underlying Medicare eligibility and coverage requirements are not. This presentation combines ELEVEN key Medicare rules and regulations your staff need to know, need to document, and need to follow for maximum compliance in case of medical record reviews.  In addition, knowing what constitutes skilled service and what needs to be documented will guide staff to improve record content at the time when efficiently providing needed visits in a cost-effective manner is more important than ever. Ensuring that every visit provided, whether by nursing, therapy, or dependent service, provides and documents skilled service is a key component to success in the Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM).
