Caregiver Education & Fellowships
Providence TrinityCare Foundation
Quality Care and Compassion
Continuing educational opportunities provide caregivers at different stages of their careers with many unique professional development opportunities to specialize in hospice and palliative care.
According to a report in the New England Journal of Medicine, for the first time since the early 20th century, more Americans have chosen to die at home than in the hospital. And the journal Hospice News reported that more than half of Medicare patients who died in 2018 did so while in hospice.
The Palliative Care Nurse Residency Fellowship is designed to increase the number of nurses who are actively practicing in the palliative care and hospice fields, both within the Providence system and beyond in the broader healthcare community.
Examples of a few of the important needs filled by your support of Caregiver Education & Fellowships:
- Training and curriculum development for chaplains in palliative care and hospice
- New fellowship and resident opportunities for nurses learning to become trained in the best practices of palliative care and hospice.
- Preparation for staff to sit for the Hospice and Palliative Care Certification exam at California State University, San Marcos
- Training and curriculum development for social workers in palliative care and hospice
