Industry Specific
Hospice care, whether provided at home or in a specialized facility, offers a healthcare service emphasizing comfort, quality of life, emotional and spiritual support for the terminally ill through a team of healthcare providers. While the hospice movement emphasizes acceptance of death, without the intention of hastening nor prolonging it, palliative treatment may often be provided to relieve the symptoms of severe illness. This course will cover the goals of hospice care, debunk myths and assumptions associated with hospice care, identify eligibility requirements, examine palliative care, and review common cultural and religious attitudes towards death and dying.
