The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization expands its available video resources to focus on advance care planning, grief, caregiving and more.

Considering hospice care is an important option.

Understanding options when facing a serious or life-limiting illness is important for patients and family caregivers.

The importance of patients and families understanding the range of options when facing a serious or life-limiting illness was highlighted in the recent Institute of Medicine report, ‘Dying in America’...

For more than forty years, hospices in the U.S. have been caring for patients and families at life’s end, and hospice has grown to serve more than 1.6 million terminally ill people every year. Yet, professionals in the field still see a need for basic information about hospice, advance care planning, caregiving, and grief.

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has added to its available video resources to offer new videos touching on four timely topics: facts about hospice, advance care planning tips, understanding grief, and caregiver stress.

The videos are available on "Moments of Life: Made Possible by Hospice" – NHPCO’s national engagement campaign. Moments of Life is known for the many videos and stories of actual patients and families that share the ways that hospice has helped them live as fully as possible. These new videos are instructional in nature and share information about common experiences that people share when coping with issues at the end of life:

“The importance of patients and families understanding the range of options when facing a serious or life-limiting illness was highlighted in the recent Institute of Medicine report, ‘Dying in America,’ so we hope these videos will add to resources available to families,” said J. Donald Schumacher, NHPCO president and CEO.

NHPCO developed these new videos in collaboration with the Internet educator Knowlera, creator of the online information portal, MonkeySee.com. A previous series of videos explaining the basics of hospice care that was created in 2010 has reached millions of viewers online.
