Could I? Should I? Expanding Your Nursing Practice to the Legal Arena as a Life Care Planner - Webinar By MentorHealth



Overview: During this presentation, we will review the decision-making process and care planning roles of a nurse and how these roles and processes can be expanded to address the full lifetime of an injured or ill individual. Although life care planners come from a variety of backgrounds including vocational counseling, medicine, physical and occupational therapy, counseling and social work to name a few, state licensure and nurse practice acts make a nurse uniquely qualified for the life care planning role. 

Additional training is necessary for nurses to expand their practice. Training programs, experience, and certification will all be discussed. A variety of practice settings will be reviewed to demonstrate the role can be filled by those who wish to practice as expert witnesses and those who prefer to work more behind the scenes. The presentation will conclude with discussion regarding the availability of mentoring and entrepreneurship.

Why should you attend: Life care planners are needed in a variety of settings. They work with individuals and families to help insure adequate resources are available for long term care and medical treatment. They can work with attorneys to help determine the cost of future medical care in legal cases. They can assist insurance companies to more closely estimate the future cost of a claim, and help determine amounts that should be set-aside to pay for future personal and medical care that would otherwise be the responsibility of Medicare.

Areas Covered in the Session: What is a Life Care Plan? Who can be a Life Care Planner? Nurse decision-making and the care planning process State licensure, Nurse practice acts, and credibility Training to be a Life Care Planner Practice Settings Availability of mentoring Entrepreneurship
