Creating a Successful Hospice Competency Program (Webinar &149*)

Qualified, professional, and compliant staff are critical for the success of hospice agencies. Despite this, many agencies do not have a formal competency program! Having a formalized competency program for all staff, including subcontractors, is essential to meeting accrediting and Medicare standards. This program will provide an in-depth explanation of what a formalized competency program is and how to successfully develop and implement one within your agency. 


• Understand what a formalized hospice competency program is and discuss why the following areas are crucial:
     - Ensuring employees, subcontractors, students, and volunteers are qualified and competent to provide services to patients and perform job responsibilities
     - How a lack of competency can lead to deficiencies on start-ups and accredited agencies, creating risk management issues for all agencies
     - Recognizing administrators and managers may not understand the requirements and assume in-service and supervisory visits are adequate
     - Why a formalized competency program for all staff, including subcontractors, is essential in meeting accrediting and Medicare standar
