Webinar for Healthcare Professionals: Exploring Hospice Care

2017 webinar image

Earn one continuing education hour with this free webinar.

Some 80% of Americans would prefer to die at home. Hospice makes that happen - lengthening the continuum of care, eliminating futile trips to the ED and reducing hospital readmissions. Hospice helps patients and families make the transition from hospital to home, from curative care to palliative. Hospice allows your patients to die in comfort and dignity, surrounded by the people they love.
