Care Quizzes & Trivia

These are poignant times that test our knowledge, interpersonal and bedside skills, as well as our capacities for caring. As a unit governance project, we are assessing the needs of our staff regarding hospice care. Our goal is to increase staff comfort level in discussing hospice with patients and their families.
