This Instructor’s Guide was developed to specifically address the learning needs of Nursing Assistants (and their associated caregivers in the US) by teaching the essential skills and strategies for providing hospice and palliative care.
The Instructor’s Guide is written specifically for the individuals who are teaching classes and workshops on how to care for the dying. The guide provides you with a template of strategies and options for teaching, based on the text and companion resources of Essentials in Hospice and Palliative Care: A Resource for Nursing Assistants. A matching section in the Instructor’s Guide provides step-by-step support for teaching each chapter from the text. The guide provides learning outcomes, preparation for students and Instructors, as well as suggested Lesson Plans. Each Lesson Plan identifies relevant • PowerPoint presentations • Text readings • Workbook questions for addressing specific concepts • Podcasts, for in-class or at-home use • Videos, for in-class or at-home use • Activities for exploring and integrating concepts. Experienced as well as new instructors will benefit from the way the Instructor’s Guide simplifies your teaching preparation and enhances your teaching impact.
