The NACC has just updated their Personal Support Worker Program with the launch of a revised module on caring for the dying!

Last year the “Essentials in Hospice Palliative Care” manual and companion resources were approved by the National Association of Career Colleges for their Personal Support Worker education program. Earlier this year I was invited by NACC to rewrite the curriculum about caring for the dying person.

I was thrilled to develop this module, now titled “Care of the Dying Person and Their Family: Essentials in Hospice Palliative Care”.

Thanks to Linda Von Tettenborn for your consulting support, and thanks to the NACC Advisory Committee for your expertise.

Today the presentation to launch the materials was well received. We look so forward to hearing how the implementation goes for the colleges and welcome any feedback!

Early this morning Ted and I walked along by Niagara Falls. What an amazing site, all the more amazing because we were alone in the early morning hours. As I contemplated the “Seven Wonders of the World” I reflected on caregivers, the incredible contribution they make and suggest that caregivers are also one of the great wonders of the world!
