Abstract

High employee turnover and the aging population are two challenges facing hospice programs today. The purpose of this project is to provide recommendations for the design of a hospice orientation that is individualized to the learner while also being more efficient and cost effective for the agency. An extensive review of the recent literature related to hospice, palliative care, and home care education was completed. Recommendations can be categorized by the themes of content, communication, and collaboration.
