We often pigeonhole who can do what task inside hospice with much of it going to nurses. How can we extend the RNs ability to reassign tasks that can be done by others while also having the appropriate buy-in from the other members of the team? How do we prepare the other disciplines to do these tasks? Learn how to drive change in your organization to work effectively as a truly cohesive IDG team.

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

      • Drive cultural change in your organization
      • Identify benefits of all IDG members working at the top of their license
      • Create a game plan for your organization
