Bridging the Gap: Hospice & Palliative Care & Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

More information

Choice, dignity, respect, and person-centered care are the foundations of hospice and palliative care.  Even so, it can be difficult to provide care for patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities within a residential setting.  Intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have a variety of causes and levels of severity.  Therefore, people with IDD often need specialized care designed to meet their individual needs during the final phase of life.

This webinar will delve into the challenges of providing hospice and palliative care to individuals with IDD.  It will also provide strategies for building relationships within the hospice team and residential staff to provide better care and services.


  • Challenges with providing hospice and palliative care to individuals with IDD
  • Unique relationships among people with IDD and their peers, family, and support staff
  • Building strong hospice and agency staff teams to support IDD patients during chronic illness or end-of-life care
  • Identifying and maximizing the strengths and resources of the hospice/palliative care and developmental disabilities disciplines
  • Insight into unique issues and potential misunderstandings surrounding collaboration between the fields of hospice and developmental disabilities
  • Forging alliances with local agencies that support IDD individuals facing the end of life
  • Ways to promote hospice within your community for community-based IDD agencies
  • Agency self-assessment

This informative session is designed for social workers, RNs, HHAs, LPNs, trainers, educators, intake staff, and liaisons.
