As a companion workbook to Essentials in Hospice and Palliative Care: A Resource for Nursing Assistants, this workbook actively engages you to help solidify your knowledge of hospice and palliative care. More than just questions and answers, the workbook guides you to develop your self-awareness, knowledge and skills in providing care for the dying.
Prepare yourself to care for the dying and their family by:
- Exploring your own beliefs and biases through reflection and writing exercises
- Increasing your understanding of hospice and palliative care language, principles, and practices
- Applying your knowledge in case scenarios, role-plays, and group discussions
The workbook promotes learning using creative activities, including crossword puzzles, reflective writing topics, group discussions, and role-plays.
