If hospice workers across the country were asked, “What is a hospice spiritual caregiver and what is their role?”, would people easily respond with similar answers? What if spiritual caregivers were asked the same question? There is a wide range of notions about what spiritual caregivers do and how they achieve their goals. The first webinar in this three-part series will examine the comprehensive role of the spiritual caregiver as a member of the hospice interdisciplinary team. This webinar will help participants clearly articulate the spiritual caregiver’s roles, duties, and skills as defined by Medicare and national best practice standards.
