November is National Hospice & Palliative Care Month, and in acknowledgement, we're featuring courses beneficial to healthcare workers, specifically those in long-term care facilities. As hospice care becomes a more widely embraced option, more workers are needed to staff facilities. It takes a special kind of person to care for those at the end of life. According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, hospice care "involves a team-oriented approach of expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's wishes."
