Hospice Education Opportunities & Materials

Woman conducting meeting or seminarThe Samaritan Institute for Education, Research & Innovation has developed an extensive array of hospice education resources for the community, healthcare professionals, funeral directors, financial planners, attorneys, and accountants.

The Institute’s goal is to help patients, customers, and clients to become well-informed about serious illness and end-of-life care in order to make better informed decisions about their healthcare wishes.

The capability to facilitate difficult conversations about healthcare wishes or provide additional helpful resources gives clients and their family a gift. A gift of comfort, support, and peace of mind.

Samaritan offers these programs at no-charge and at your locations.

  • For Healthcare Professionals
    • Choose from presentations about having difficult conversations with patients and families and the end of life to pain management to compassion fatigue.
  • For Other Professionals
    • Well-informed professionals can offer their clients value-added support after learning about the array of Samaritan’s programs and services.
