Home care and hospice team members must rely on family, friends, or other lay caregivers to help patients throughout the plan of care. Sometimes it is easy to assume that these key members of the health care team already understand the health care environment and its complexity. It is important to assume at the onset of care that they may not. With this in mind, this foundational course helps team members work with family caregivers to improve knowledge and care. Safety and quality are addressed, as well as care between and after visits.

Competency in transferring knowledge and experience has never been more important. Shortened time frames in home care and hospice are examples.
