LIFE CARE PLANNING

Life Care Planning Service estimates all short and long-term costs associated with every aspect of your care, for an individual with a catastrophic injury or chronic illness. A complete life care plan should include all medical and non-medical needs.

At VP Medical Consulting we can create and deliver Life Planning that is specific to your needs. Our highly qualified nursing professionals are able to accurately project the costs and frequency of all services and goods for an individual over their estimated life span.

By establishing and qualifying all medical damages that are the result of a catastrophic injury or terminal illness, our experienced staff will be able to provide you with a detailed outline of your current and future medical costs, home care costs, vocational, educational, psycho-social needs of the individual relating to their specific circumstances. Our skilled team will ensure that you have all the necessary information you need to lead an independent life with dignity and respect.

Life Care Planning is a powerful tool that permits us to provide to attorneys and adjusters the necessary information and knowledge to properly plan for the future of the disabled individual.

Life care planning is a consistent process for evaluating the patient and disability in order to establish all of the needs dictated by the onset of that disability. Consistency refers to the application of the process of evaluation and does not suggest that similar disabilities will all receive similar recommendations to meet established needs. Careful consideration is given to the goals, needs and interest of the patient, the needs of the family and the realities of the geographic region in which the patient resides. The process is based on published standards, tenets, methodologies and principles.

THE NURSE PRACTICE AND LIFE CARE PLANNING

At VP Medical Consulting we believe that nurses are the best suited for Life Clare Planning. Nursing is a scientific discipline and profession that requires highly skilled, detail oriented people who take their job seriously. Registered nurses rely on critical thinking to integrate objective data with the knowledge that is gained from an assessment of the subjective experience of patients. Registered nurses utilize this critical thinking process to apply and deliver the best available evidence and research data processes of diagnosis and treatment. Nurses continually evaluate quality and effectiveness of nursing practices and seek to optimize the outcome.

Registered Nurse Life Care Planners are governed by the Scope and Standards, outlined in the Nurse Practice Act. The Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice delineates the professional responsibilities of all professional registered nurses whom are engaged in the nursing practice, regardless of the setting.

Additionally, VP Medical Life Care Planning professionals are certified life care planners (CNLCP ®), a formal recognition and service standard that validates knowledge, experience, skills and clinical judgement within a specific nursing specialty; and, as such, is reflective of a more stringent professional practice standard.
