According to the CDC, there is one death by suicide in the United States every 12 minutes.  In hospice and home care this is especially relevant because cancer patients have nearly twice the incidence of suicide as the general population.  Working with seriously ill people can create unique challenges that may include navigating the legal system, advocating for self-determination, and understanding organizational policies and community perceptions.  This webinar will examine personal, professional, and ethical conflicts, address essential skill sets, and take an in-depth look at how to assess suicidal ideation.
