This week in hospice news:

  • The official podcast of NHPCO connects you with experts and leaders in hospice and palliative care with pertinent discussions about timely issues facing the field today. Judi Lund Person and Jennifer Kennedy will focus on pressing regulatory, compliance and quality topics and team NHPCO will focus on additional news of importance. There are many episodes available for members, such as:
    • Episode 38: Serious Illness Care
      • With our nation’s aging demographics all signs point to the fact that serious illness care is going to be critically important in the not-too-distant future. As hospice providers, we must understand the current regulatory definition and potential implications if our community is going to become the logical providers of this type of essential care. Hear from Judi and NHPCO’s new Vice President of Palliative and Advanced Care, Lori Bishop, as she shares her thoughts and experience from the field at Sutter Health and UnityPoint Health. And the team gives a shout out to hospice volunteers.
  • NHPCO’s weekly blog has been released. The top story is that the EGSS (Evaluation of Grief Support Services) survey will be replacing FEBS. July 15 will be the last day FEBS users will have to enter FEBS data. If you have any questions, email egss@nhpco.org.
    • Also: CMS Releases Changes to Hospice Cost Report, there’s a PEPPER Report Webinar on April 26th (go here to register), plus, there are some other fantastic workshops going on concerning opioid safety and access for LGBTQ+ people. Read the entire newsletter to learn more!
