  23. What we learned • That our community is afraid of the word “Hospice” • That further education is needed about the benefits of Hospice or end of life care • The education provided needs to be directed at the community and not always the physicians • The IHI model and how to apply to projects in our office

  24. The IHI model will continue to be utilized as we strive to increase our care of Hospice patients in the community. We will apply the IHI model by continuing to meet as a group on future promotional projects for Hospice.
