We encourage everyone to follow the CDC recommendation to stay home and practice social distancing. Luckily, there are some wonderful webinars taking place this month. Tune in at home for inspiration, encouragement, and education on a range of end-of-life topics.
Webinar: Understanding Advanced Illness Care
Thursday, April 8th
10:00 - 11:30 a.m. EST
At times, it seems as if what may have begun as a single medical diagnosis morphs into many, especially with the elderly patient. Hope Hospice clinical staff will provide information about the most prevalent co-existing medical conditions among the elderly and the importance of medication management. Guidance will also be provided in determining when it is appropriate for comfort care to be considered in place of curative care and aggressive treatments. For more information, please click here.
Facing Grief in the HealthCare Workplace
Saturday, April 10th
1:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST
HealthCare professionals have faced unprecedented challenges in 2020. These stresses keep us from connecting with others and living our lives. Long stressful hours, the inability to be with loved ones, struggling to provide the best care for patients, watching grieving families say goodbye remotely—all while being immersed in grief day in and day out personally and professionally. Facing Grief in the HealthCare Workplace is a 2.0 hour workshop where we can come together to acknowledge and talk about this unique grief in the healthcare environment.
