Many clinicians serving hospice patients provide excellent care but don't know the patient-care requirements set forth in the hospice Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs). This knowledge gap can put the license of the agency, as well as that of the clinician, at risk. This course provides an overview of the Patient Care subsection of the Hospice CoPs to familiarize learners with its contents so they can reference and study its specifics. Compliance with all CoPs is paramount to each agency's success, as state surveyors use the CoPs to determine whether an agency complies or is deficient in complying with the rules required of all hospices that wish to participate in Medicare's hospice benefit program. This course is one tool to help participants make their agencies survey-ready. Other, more detailed content exists in other courses.
