Since 1984, the Maine Hospice Council and Center for End-of-Life Care has been the leading advocate, trainer, and educator for hospice care in Maine through our mission to ensure the continued development and delivery of high quality hospice and palliative care to all Mainers. As part of this mission, the Council holds various conferences, fundraisers, meetings, and other events throughout the year in an effort to educate both professionals and laypersons in the best practices of hospice and palliative care medicine. The Maine Hospice Council often brings nationally recognized presenters who are not only experts on the issues, but familiar with the unique needs we have in Maine.
The Maine POLST Coalition presents a “Train-the-Trainer” all-day educational workshop in Portland on Thursday, March 17, 2016. Attendees will learn everything there is to know about Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST), and be able to take this new knowledge back with them to their respective systems and facilities. All attendees will receive a hard copy and an electronic training manual that can be utilized to train others.
All proceeds benefit the Maine POLST Coalition and their continued efforts to develop the POLST program in Maine, a state POLST registry, interstate portability, and other initiatives.
A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Cost $139 per person
