Webinar for Healthcare Professionals: When are Cardiac Patients Hospice Appropriate?

2017 webinar image

Heart failure is the leading cause of death in the US, yet accounts for just 10 percent of hospice admissions. The goal of this webinar is to teach healthcare professionals to recognize what were once routine and manageable exacerbations as signs of unstable terminal illness, and to understand why hospice improves quality of life when proven treatments no longer can.
