The Informed Caregiver course is being developed for end-of-life doulas, professional caregivers as well as family caregivers. It is unique in that it focuses completely on the medical and practical aspects of dying. It comes from the perspective of a physician who has also been where you are….at the bedside!
The Informed Caregiver course will provide you with basic but critical medical information relevant to your caregiving or doula responsibilities and will be presented using accessible, understandable language. Having this knowledge is sure to decrease your stress and allow you to fully experience the joy of your work.
Not only will YOU benefit from this course, but your clients and loved ones will to! They will sense your confidence and feel more secure in your presence. You will become even more valuable to the rest of the medical or hospice team because:
Dr. Jackie includes many stories from the bedside to make the material tangible and memorable and every Module will have a section specifying “What a Doula/Caregiver Can Do!”
If you’re interested in helping Dr. Jackie develop this course by providing feedback via simple, quick 3 question surveys at the end of the course --- please enter your name and email address below.
We will be sending out information on how to sign up for a fraction of the amount the full course will sell for.
