Speaker
Speaker: Michael Mencias, MD, FAAHPM
Senior Hospice Medical Director
MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care

Purpose: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) are widely used to reduce mortality in heart failure. Challenges for palliative care clinicians include care management associated with these devices, especially at end of life. This webinar will review the indications for implantation for these devices, discuss advance care planning, and outline the process of deactivation.

Objectives:

  1. Evaluate the current consensus statements and latest research on implantable cardioverter defibrillators in patients nearing end of life
  2. Discuss advance care planning and deactivation considerations
  3. Recognize the process and procedure for successful deactivation
Why Do I Need to Know This?
Patients with ICDs are referred with increased frequency for palliative care consultation or hospice care. Clinicians need to understand the complexity of care associated with these devices, importantly the clinical and ethical considerations, especially at end of life. This webinar will discuss how to approach the care of patients with ICDs from implantation to death.

Target Audience:  palliative care specialists, pain specialists, primary care providers, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses with a specialty in palliative care/hospice, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students
