Hospice Training for St. Joseph's Rehabilitation and Residence
Hospice Philosophy and Pain and Symptom Management at End of Life
Hospice is your partner when your residents reach the transition point at end of life. Our goal is not to prolong life or hasten death, but to provide relief from pain and symptoms brought on by disease progression. In this video training, HSM's Nurse Practitioner Supervisor, Jason Libby, discusses hospice philosophy and describes how hospice helps manage universal symptoms at end of life. Jason describes the important toolbox of hospice medications which keeps people comfortable when they face distressing symptoms.
