CONTENT

This 1.25-hour free webinar will review education in end-of-life care. Taking care of someone at the end of life is different than taking care of someone who is going to get better. Most people don’t understand this and aren't familiar with the particular goals of end-of-life care. If we don’t teach people the difference, our end-of-life work will be judged by the wrong standard  by the standard of recovery. In this important and engaging webinar, Barbara Karnes, RN, draws on her forty years of experience as an award-winning hospice nurse, agency administrator, educator, and thought leader to talk about the critical role education plays in the care that we provide at the end of life.
