Care with Sensitivity and Compassion
Hospice care is focused on pain management and symptom control, delivered with compassion to patients at the end of life. More than 1.4 million Medicare beneficiaries receive hospice services annually, and most of those days of care are provided in the patient’s home.
Providing palliative care can take a toll on both clinical staff and the hospice volunteers who are an essential part of the care team. Providers need the personal support, professional development opportunities, and mobile access to training and education to enable them to meet the needs of patients for in-home hospice services.
HealthStream understands the emotional impact of hospice and palliative care on the healthcare workforce and supports the team approach needed by providing education in palliative care and professional boundaries. We help organizations tackle turnover through streamlined onboarding and training initiatives and mitigate risk through seamless navigation of annual regulatory requirements. With HealthStream, hospice staff can focus on what’s really important—the comfort of the patients and families they serve.
