Hospice Palliative Nursing Association Teaching Sheets

The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (www.hpna.org) has provided a number of educational handouts for patients and families. HPNA is committed to promoting excellence in end-of-life nursing. St. Joseph Hospice appreciates the information that has been made available for patients and families facing end-of-life care and is honored to recognize many of our nurses that are members of HPNA.
