A part of the Seasons Hospice Community Education Series

Spirituality at the End of Life

December 7, 2021 at 2pm ET / 11am PT

 
The spirituality of those nearing the end of life can vary greatly from individual to individual. Some people may practice an established faith, and some may have questions or crises in their final days. In this course, we will examine effective strategies for providing spiritual support and who can provide it, and outline ways in which clinicians and facility staff can make meaningful spiritual connections.
 
This course will help administrators, clinicians, & facility staff:
  • Explore effective spiritual care strategies for hospice and palliative care patients.
  • Determine who is able to provide spiritual care interventions.
  • Outline ways in which clinicians can make meaningful connections with patients and families.
 
This course is eligible for one hour of CE/CME for RNs, Social Workers, and Long Term Care Administrators. It is pending approval for CME for MDs, NPs, and Physician Assistants.
 
If you have questions about this course please email communityeducation@seasons.org.
