Compliance Series for Non-Clinical Staff: Compliance for Hospice Social Workers & Chaplains (Webinar $149*)

Regulations regarding spiritual caregivers and social workers can be vague, but they offer the opportunity to comply with the “spirit of the law” to help us define excellence in the way psychosocial/spiritual suffering is addressed.  This webinar will cover social work and spiritual care related regulations, levels of licensing, assessment guidance, documentation, and how to stay involved when visits are refused.



  • Top FAQs about social worker and chaplain compliance, including licensing, supervision, assessment, telephone calls, and documentation
  • Methods to stay involved with patients/families when they refuse visits
  • Assist in interpreting the “spirit of the law” regarding Medicare regulations and assumptions
  • Ways to maximize the full potential of social workers and chaplains
  • Time allotted for your specific questions and concerns

  • Orientation outline to better prepare new social workers and chaplains
  • Extensive handout with additional resources regarding main topics
