Course Overview

Hospice work is a calling. To care for people with a terminal diagnosis and less than six months to live requires a different approach to medicine and healing. Whether a nurse, doctor, social worker or acupuncturist, we want to help the patient feel comfortable, whole, and human.

 

The hospice team works to provide attentive care for each patient with minimal interventions. Although hospice is a specific medical designation, patients can be homebound for other reasons and greatly benefit from a practitioner treating them at home.

 

Acupuncture can relieve many symptoms associated with this stage of life without medications or side effects. Acupuncture is gentle, effective, and virtually painless while bringing about a sense of well-being and relaxation.

 

In this course, you will gain valuable tools for end-of-life care and home visits. Whether you work in hospice or simply want to have confidence in providing comfort care for loved ones, patients, and their families.

 

We will go into practical skills for treating medically fragile patients and navigating home healthcare, including travel, safety, and interactions with family and other caregivers.

 

We will also look at the stages of dying and share strategies to connect compassionately with patients at the end of life.

    I truly enjoyed this course especially since my father recently passed away and was in hospice care for a week prior to passing. The information that the teacher provided in this course was accurate specifically in the last week of my dying father.

Laura C. (United States of America)

This course is very thorough, detailed and rich with content on a subject that has not received a lot of attention from the broader acupuncture community.

Ruth W. (United States of America)

This was a thorough explanation of all aspects of Hospice care. Many examples provided. Important topics repeated in various modules. Nice division of categories that can be viewed in short segments, at your leisure.
