Many hospice programs struggle with achieving and maintaining the 5% volunteer requirement.  How is the 5% calculated?  What’s involved in a volunteer cost savings report?  Medicare is very specific about the required contents of a volunteer training program.  Are all required topics included in your initial training course?  This webinar will focus on volunteer service regulations and provide ideas, resources, sample training curriculum, and more that you can personalize.
