Down East Hospice Volunteers To Host Living With Grief Program

 Each year the Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) presents a nationally recognized distance learning program. For more than a decade, this annual educational event has been instrumental in educating healthcare professionals and families on issues affecting end-of-life care. The program provides an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals- including doctors, nurses, funeral directors, psychologists, educators, social worker and bereavement counselors – to share and exchange ideas and obtain continuing education credits.

This year HFA’s 20th Annual Living With Grief Program focuses on “Improving Care for Veterans Facing Illness and Death.” This program assists end-of-life care provider organizations and health and human service professionals in enhancing their sensitivities and understanding of veterans and to provide professionals with new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. This program will be shown at Calais Regional Hospital on April 17, 2013 and Down East Community Hospital on April 24, 2013 from 1:30 PM to 4 PM. There is no charge for the program and CEU’s are available.
