This comprehensive series is designed to do just that and get your agency’s volunteer training program back on track! Industry expert Gary Gardia will walk you through lessons learned to raise the bar for programs and combat social isolation. Participants will fully understand what counts, and what doesn’t towards the CoP requirement. You will also learn how to create or fine tune your current program to meet the challenges and unique needs facing hospice today.

Session Dates & Descriptions
Webinars start at: Noon Pacific – 1 PM Mountain – 2 PM Central – 3 PM Eastern
Extremely stressful and challenging situations often provide growth and learning opportunities. Such is the case with COVID-19 and hospice care. One difficult situation we knew about pre-COVID-19 is that social isolation often accompanies a diagnosis of a serious illness. What have we learned this past year about the role of volunteers in addressing social isolation? Plenty! This webinar will explore lessons learned from the pandemic and how to utilize the critical role of hospice volunteers, especially during difficult times.
The age-old question…what counts? A question many of us hear on a regular basis. This webinar will look closely at the regulations related to the 5% requirement. How is it calculated? What staff hours do we include? What volunteer hours can we include? Ensure your agency not only meets but exceeds the CoP requirement.
