Striving for excellence.
Hospice of the Valley is committed to physician education in our community. We offer a comprehensive palliative care rotation that provides local medical students, residents and fellows with an in-depth overview of the basic principles of hospice and palliative medicine.
The rotation is individually tailored to meet the learning needs of specialties including: family practice, internal medicine, psychiatry, pediatrics, and surgery. Schedules include group orientation and field visits with individual palliative care specialists, including a physician, RN case coordinator, social worker, and chaplain.
Residents also must complete interactive online modules on the following palliative care topics: pain management, dyspnea, advance directives, dementia and delirium, cultural differences, substance abuse, personality disorders and hospice care.
