WEBINAR DETAILS

Qualified, professional, and compliant staff are critical for the success of hospice agencies.  Despite this, many agencies do not have a formal competency program!  Having a formalized competency program for all staff, including subcontractors, is essential to meeting accrediting and Medicare standards.  This program will provide an in-depth explanation of what a formalized competency program is and how to successfully develop and implement one within your agency.
