Each year the Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) presents a nationally recognized distance learning program to more than 125,000 people in 2,000 communities.  This program provides an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals to share and exchange ideas and obtain continuing education credits and the information provided is practical for all levels of professions – entry level, intermediate or advanced.  Those who may find this offering to be of value include healthcare clinicians, social service clinicians and others working in the hospice, palliative care, counseling, hospital, nursing home, funeral home or faith community environments.


This year’s Living with Grief ® Program focuses on When Grief is Complicated.  This program discusses the nature of complicated grief, which is a significant deviation from the typical grieving process, and how it can result in additional complications and dangers.  Included will be ways to identify the patterns associated with complicated grief as well as different approaches to treating it.  This educational program combines presentations by experts with video, discussion, and additional complementary learning materials.  If you wish to find out more about the program you can go to the HFA website at www.hospicefoundation.org
