PHorum Archives

PHorum 2020

In the spirit of being respectfully cautious amid the spread of COVID-19 we transformed our 7th Annual PHorum (originally scheduled to be on March 12 at the Lobero Theatre) from a physical gathering to a virtual gathering that can be shared. Thank you for joining us virtually at our 7th Annual PHorum. Dr. Chris Kerr will share his newest research on end-of-life experiences, and then Dr. Michael Kearney will discuss with Dr. Kerr how these phenomenal experiences impact the bereaved, the loved ones who remain.  
 

 

Workshop 2020

The talk will review the models design, financial sustainability and its relationship to Hospice in terms of both mission and margin. It will also include a discussion of two studies conducted at Hospice Buffalo: 1) Cost Savings and Enhanced Hospice Enrollment with a Home-Based Palliative Care Program Implemented as a Hospice-Private Payer Partnership, and 2) the Clinical Impact of a Home-Based Palliative Care Program: A Hospice-Private Payer Partnership.
