Recognizing the Dying Process

  •   Webinar
  •   7/19/2018
  •   Lisa Chapman, BSW

Because our society has been anesthetized and isolated from death and dying for as long as any of us can remember, it has become a taboo subject and a “medical” situation.  The greatest gift that Hospice agencies can give their patients and families is the knowledge of what the future holds and discuss it in such a manner that they are able to be “participants” in the very natural process rather than “victims” of “failed medical interventions” to keep the patient alive indefinitely/forever.  This webinar will help Hospice clinicians give this gift.

  •   Heather Calhoun, RN, BSN, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H

Clinician Retention is still one of the most significant issues with which Healthcare organizations are facing.  One reason for this is that most organizations do NOT have a formal Mentoring Program in place to ensure the happiness and tenure of their staff.  This educational webinar will teach you how to build and implement a Mentor Program in your organization.

Cultural Diversity: Being Sensitive to Those We Serve

  •   Webinar
  •   6/15/2018
  •   Gilbert Marez, D.Min.

Healing is not simply treating a clinical problem of a patient. It is truly reaching the hearts and minds of human beings. If you don’t know how your patients are going to receive the clinical, mental and spiritual care that is being delivered – how can you truly impact their lives?  In this webinar, you will learn to identify various cultural signs that may increase a clinician’s and support staff’s awareness about concepts and preferences of patients of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Come learn how to provide true care in a manner that can be appreciated by all people!

Advanced Care Planning and Goals of Care

  •   Webinar
  •   6/7/2018
  •   Melissa Abbott, RN, MSN, MHA

People view medicine as something that is supposed to save lives. But in cases of chronic disease and terminal conditions, patients often need comfort and palliative care rather than a cure. There has been a national push to rethink end-of-life care and to start recognizing that extending a person’s life may not necessarily improve their life. 

In this On Demand webinar, you can gain an understanding of why these conversations are so important to have with patients and families, and how to initiate these difficult conversations with patients and families you work with and the best way to go about doing this.

  •   Webinar
  •   5/1/2018
  •   Heather Calhoun, RN, BSN, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H

In healthcare, especially Hospice, dealing with death and dying is a part of the job.  Yet Social Workers are left to explain what the hospital or physician did not - that hospice has been called because there is nothing else that can be done for the patient.  These are difficult conversations to have with both the patient and their family.  Just because Social Workers are used to having these conversations, that does not mean it is easy.  This webinar will teach you some techniques to discuss the delicate subject of death and dying.
