Many team members come to hospice understanding that they need to provide grief counseling, yet what does that really mean for chaplains and social workers? What is their counseling scope-of-practice? This webinar will define grief counseling and illustrate situations that fall outside of a chaplain’s or a social worker’s line of work. Using the interactive chat box during the live webinar, you can discuss which theoretical frameworks are a good fit for grief counseling within your agency. You will also learn which models are outdated and why, and what models to use now to guide your practice of work. Participants will gain valuable skills and information as they relate to the work of social workers and chaplains in the hospice setting. Jennifer calls two healthcare organizations seeking information. Her impression of the first organization is that they are attentive, competent, and ready to help. The second organization feels indifferent, unfriendly, and abrupt. This impression was formed from a single phone call. Poor telephone behaviors – whether systemic or interpersonal – reduce access and could be a top branding issue. Healthcare providers have less to fear from competitors offering the same services than from indifference on the part of a team member. To be fair, telephone rapport can be difficult to accomplish because calls tend to be transactional. This webinar will cover bite-sized skills that can be implemented quickly and result in significantly better patient experiences.

How can you sustain the gains implemented as a result of attending this webinar? You can't observe every telephone call. The solution is a peer coaching program to reinforce agency standards throughout the year. A peer call coaching program is the most effective way to sustain positive call behaviors and customer satisfaction.  By the end of this webinar attendees will have a simple, ready-to-implement program.



  • Use voicemail for outbound messaging that attracts new patients
  • Create your organization’s sustainable phone greeting
  • Understand four call management tactics that significantly improve patient experience
  • Ditch the scripts and use a four-step process to connect on every call
  • Launch a DIY peer coaching program

Who Should Attend

This informative session is designed for team members involved in the patient experience. It will benefit call center managers, leaders, and managers responsible for customer service staff, training managers, HR personnel, referral and intake staff, and anyone who wants to improve their customer service phone skills.
