Our community aims to support those who educate staff and community members about hospice, palliative care and other topics related to hospice and palliative care. Topics may include advance care planning, cultural humility, working with diverse populations, orientation and onboarding, and other ideas that you, our community members, bring to the table. We want to share resources, methods, curricula, tools and ideas as we strive to increase the depth, breadth and audience for hospice and palliative care education.
