patients, families, and professionals.
You see them collectively and individually.

Examining national CAHPS data, it strikes you that primary CARE-GIVERS rated hospices at only 72% for training them to GIVE CARE . *

In most schools, a
72% score = C-
(Just above a D+ ?)
*National CAHPS Hospice Survey data, click here for Data.Medicare.gov Measures and National Averages (Mean).
Putting your data head into a caregiver's shoes, you think:
A Caregiver's Shoes
"If I felt like I'd been trained to only a "C-" to give the most important kind of care to a most important person in my life, how would I answer those CAHPS overall ratings?"
Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst hospice care possible and 10 is the best hospice care possible, what number would you use to rate your family member's hospice care?

Would you recommend this hospice to your friends and family?

Today, people learn in real time.
Yes, in conversations when your professionals visit.
Yes, families expect 24/7 information. What they need. When they need it.
Yes, families look for info on their phones, tablets, and computers.
Yet, if not on your site, families will find what they need, anywhere.
Even if that source is your competitor.

You ask, "Don't we want our patients' families to come to us, FIRST,
as their resource for the training they need, when they need it?"
"YES!"
"But, how can we put the pieces together in a new way for TODAY?"
  • For our primary caregivers and their families?
  • How can we provide so much training for different family members who take turns giving care to their loved one?
  • How can we make it timely when there's so little time?
  • Make it relevant to what matters most to them?
  • Keep it engaging?

And, how can we use our training materials as a springboard for our all-important conversations with and support from our hospice's professionals?
