Expressway to Learning

Expressway to Learning is a special program for state associations, constructed as a series of one (1) hour live educational teleconferences or webinars for hospice associations provided by hospice experts. These teleconferences will provide new understanding and insights into hospice operations, regulatory requirements, clinical care, performance improvement and operational efficiencies for participants. The Expressway to Learning teleconferences are provided live, via a conference call or webinar to association participants. With the increased cost of travel and the pressures for efficient time management Expressway to Learning provides a cost effective alternative to meet the educational needs of an association’s members.

An Expressway to Learning live teleconference consists of a 45 minute presentation providing expertise and information on the selected topic followed by a 15 minute question and answer period. Participants will be provided presentation materials (PowerPoint and any additional supporting documents).
