Course Description
TCC is proud to present a brand-new addition to our popular Hospice 101 seminar, designed specifically for the Hospice Manager. Hospice 201 will enhance the skills of the hospice manager in their role of leading and supervising the day-to-day hospice operations in ways that ensure compliance for quality hospice care delivery. During this seminar, participants will take a deep dive into all aspects of their jobs like hospice eligibility documentation, management of the IDT, coordination of hospice services and how to prepare for certification surveys. The MCR CoPs will serve as the foundation for this interactive session and as a bonus, each participant will receive the Hospice 201 tool kit, complete with handouts, practical resource guides and tip sheets.
