It’s often heard, “We can’t afford the time and cost of staff education” But it begs the question…“Can you afford not to?” Palliative and hospice programs provide human powered service; therefore, a program’s greatest asset…and potentially greatest liability…are their employees.
Education is not about talking at people but rather with them. Engaging direct service staff through facilitated discussion can offer program leaders valuable insight into quality improvement practices and ways to streamline operations that ultimately saves their program money.
