Course image

In this course we will identify general, end-stage disease guidelines for hospice eligibility, analyze illness trajectories identified in patients with progressive, terminal illness and discuss how they can be used to meet the needs of patients with terminal conditions. We’ll also discuss how to demonstrate eligibility for hospice care of patients with non-cancer diagnoses through documentation.
