As a nurse or professional caregiver have you sometimes wished you could continue to be part of your patients' healing process after they leave your immediate care? With the Life Care Planning program or degree you can take a longer term interest in the current and future needs of patient clients.
Individuals with chronic health problems, severe disabilities or life-changing injuries face important decisions and changes. If you are a qualified professional in a rehabilitation field or a registered nurse you can be part of the continuing treatment or life care management of these individuals.
To provide accurate needs assessment you need to understand in great detail all that occurs physically and psychologically when someone suffers a life-changing illness or disability. Life Care Planning courses will prepare you to skillfully assess the long-term needs of your client. Your degree or certificate program will prepare you to become a life care planner, working together with others such as insurance companies, nursing homes, and attorneys to provide the best care possible.
Medical doctors, special education teachers, social workers and physical therapists, are just a few of the qualified professionals who are eligible for life care management certification. If you are interested in becoming a life care planner then you need to enroll in a program or degree in life care planning.
