Compliance Series for Non-Clinical Staff 1 of 3: Compliance for Hospice Bereavement Staff
Sep 26 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

More information

While not much has been written in the CoPs about bereavement, there are several areas where you must ensure regulatory compliance and that quality bereavement care is being provided.  One area of concern for hospices is the correlation between bereavement risk assessments and follow-up care for people at medium-to-high risk.  The CoPs require bereavement counseling.  But which team members are qualified to provide that counseling?  This webinar will cover key regulations and offer suggestions for bereavement care and programming, especially with limited staff and resources.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
