Hospice Behavioral Health 101

Join us for a Live Webinar on October 21, 2022 from 1-2:30 pm EST
1.5 CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians

Hospice behavioral specialists are considered the number one patient and family advocate for patient care and end-of-life wishes. With the evolution of telehealth, it's particularly important to ensure that behavioral health specialists are equipped to set up and conduct an initial and ongoing assessment for hospice patients and their families. When a patient enters hospice care, it is imperative that they have access and support to their behavior health specialist for end-of-life planning, community resources, emotional support, crisis intervention, legalities, psychoeducation on the dying process, prevention resources for caregiver burnout, funeral planning, and as needed placement information in their community.  

In this course, the hospice behavioral health specialist will be able to identify and explain the valuable role of the behavioral health specialist in hospice care, provide discussion on what needs and end of life wishes need to be assessed at the initial biopsychosocial assessment and ongoing assessment, what technology is needed to ensure accessible and successful telehealth visits, and explain applicable laws and legalities for hospice patients and their families. This course will include valuable tips and resources for behavioral health specialists in the hospice care role.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the role and duties of the hospice behavioral health specialist. 
  • Describe how to successfully set up and conduct ongoing telehealth visits for hospice behavioral health.  
  • Explain the technology needed to successfully set up and conduct ongoing telehealth visits for hospice behavioral health.  
  • Identify and explain applicable laws in relation to hospice behavioral health.
