This session was recorded at NHPCO’s Volunteer Leadership Virtual Conference (VLVC) July 30 2012

Are you clear about your boundaries in your work as a hospice professional? Do volunteers always maintain good professional boundaries with the families you serve? Similar to how dotted lines, curbs and guardrails help you negotiate the roads you travel, this session will offer skills and tools that can assist volunteers in being aware of boundaries in hospice care and show how it has been used  to guide both staff and volunteers


  • Define personal and professional relationships
  • Determine the boundaries of personal and professional relationships
  • Describe potential areas of vulnerability and identify ways to maintain effective relationships and boundaries
