Even the most skilled and experienced practitioners can find areas where improvements can be made.  Finding someone who can provide objective observation and constructive feedback can be a great way to increase the quality of the care you provide. 

There are frequent changes to regulations and evidence-based best practices, which means there’s always something to learn. Coaching and mentoring those who are starting in the end of life industry helps to create a dedicated, skilled workforce who in turn can support the new staff who will come after them.  If you’re part of a hospice interdisciplinary team, help each other out and seek out the mentors in our industry.

Barbara Karnes is one of our mentors, and Dr. Atul Gawande has a great TED talk about how he benefited from coaching. You can watch it here.  You’ll find more resources to support and enhance your hospice practice at, along with ideas for your Self Care.  Remember, you are The Heart of Hospice!
