Hospice Volunteer Competency Framework: Introducing the document & considerations for its use
November 23, 2021
November 26, 2021
Aligned with our existing competency frameworks for health care professionals, the volunteer competencies are organized under eight headings, or domains. No matter how you decide to operationalize the competencies in your volunteer program, they are designed to help you better recruit, screen and train hospice volunteers.
The new volunteer competency framework was co-created with 18 representatives of hospice organizations from across BC, and was guided by key provincial and regional hospice palliative care partners and experts.
This session will help you to consider how the document will be of benefit in settings other than hospices, such as long-term care or volunteer–led community groups and organizations that support people effected with serious illness.
