Share Article

Because of the complex needs of hospice and palliative care patients, clinicians must be able to construct a plan of care that will accurately chart a patient’s progress toward outcomes that enhance his or her quality of life. To accomplish this important service, clinicians should employ a system of preferred practices to effectively assess, document, and manage the end of life needs of patients and their families.

Pedagogy, Inc., a national provider of online continuing education and training courses for health care professionals, is very pleased to announce an important new class on using preferred practices to create a hospice and palliative plan of care authored by William Storey, MA and Director of Education for Pro Hospice Solutions, LLC.

William has been a professional educator for over 20 years to traditional and non- traditional students in secondary and post-secondary education. His expertise lies in the areas of research and curriculum development, and he uses these two skills to help make Pro Hospice Solutions a dynamic force in palliative and hospice education. Pro Hospice Solutions was formed by Gwenn Dalton, RN, and its mission is to provide training and support for those Hospice Heroes and Healthcare Warriors who continue to fight for end of life rights. As Director of Education, William produces continuing education material, develops seminars for hospice professionals and family caregivers, manages the company’s website as a tool for educating and marketing, provides certification opportunities for health care professionals, and organizes other programs that promote an understanding of the role hospice plays in our lives. His previous publications include Tao of Composition: The Eight Fold Path to Analytical Enlightenment and The Art of Transition: Using the Hospice and Palliative Plan of Care to Advance Quality of Life, a live seminar approved for 7 hours CE by the TNA, NSWA, and NAB.

Pedagogy’s new course is William’s latest publication titled The Art of Transition: Using Preferred Practices to Create a Hospice and Palliative Plan of Care. Since it is necessary for clinicians to continually develop and hone their healthcare skills to ensure the best outcomes, this course has been designed to teach clinicians how to use preferred practices to create and implement a plan of care that is patient- centered and based on an assessment of the patient’s physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs. When these needs are considered, patients receive practical and compassionate care developed from quality assessment and communication. By considering these needs, clinicians empower themselves with the insight to confidently care for the dying and the ability to maintain quality of life in the face of death.

This course also contains innovative videos which uniquely illustrate elements of a case study and highlight important concepts of care to establish a learning experience grounded in the principles of mentoring. Through these videos, clinicians have an opportunity to experience aspects of the Lester family’s end of life journey and see how the problems that hinder positive healthcare outcomes are solved through the use of preferred practices.

Pedagogy, Inc. is excited to announce this partnership with Pro Hospice Solutions to present The Art of Transition: Using Preferred Practices to Create a Hospice and Palliative Plan of Care which is the first in The Art of Transition on-line series. The remaining two courses will focus on symptom management and bereavement. Like the current course on the plan of care, this series will provide clinicians with a continuing education experience that is research- based, stresses the best practices, and shows scenes from a simulated case study to see how techniques are applied in the field. Join us for all three, and you will not be disappointed.
