Palliative Care and Hospice Webinar Series

Join the HHS Partnership Center and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) for a two-part webinar series on care for the seriously ill and trauma-informed bereavement services.

The HHS Rural Monitor noted that many, including medical professionals, sometimes believe palliative care is appropriate only for people who are nearing the end of life. Palliative and hospice care can dramatically improve a variety outcomes for patients and families. Misconceptions about these services, along with the discomfort people feel with talking about serious illness and end of life, can create barriers to these services.

Join these events to learn how your community can engage with palliative care and hospice providers to create greater access to services, balancing health care with hope and dignity.
