County awards $5,000 grant to support clinical training for hospice professionals

The County of San Diego Board of Supervisors last week awarded the Es­condido based Elizabeth Hospice with a $5,000 grant from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program to support a clinical training learning lab for hos­pice professionals, that includes tradi­tional classroom training and patient care simulations.

The learning lab, which resembles a patient’s home, will create a dynamic learning environment to support train­ing in crisis management and provid­er patient communication.

“The Elizabeth Hospice Learning Lab will provide our hospice clinicians with an opportunity to enhance their professional skills in a controlled en­vironment,” said Jan Jones, president and CEO of the Elizabeth Hospice. “Special thanks to the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors for their generous support of hospice care to San Diego communities.”

The corporate offices for the Eliza­beth Hospice are based within District 3 (Escondido), represented by County Supervisor Dave Roberts. Further­more, the Elizabeth Hospice services are provided throughout the County and the organization is considered the longest-running nonprofit hospice and palliative care provider in the region, serving nearly 500 seriously ill adults and children each day throughout San Diego and the Inland Empire.
