The Hospice Essentials Course provides a flexible orientation path for clinicians new to the hospice and palliative care specialty.  It can also be used as the primary method of providing new hospice and palliative care team members with the ‘essential’ knowledge needed for safe, competent clinical practice.

This comprehensive, interdisciplinary educational program and companion resource materials uses sound clinical judgement and evidence-based practice standards to provide fundamental content and establish a strong foundation for hospice and palliative care clinical practice. 

The Hospice Essentials Course was developed by Teleios Collaborative Network’s (TCN) Professional Development team and subject matter experts within the member network.  The program includes an option to customize participation for experienced hospice and palliative care clinicians. The program can be attended in-person or remotely via videoconference.
