Date:7/24/2008

BRANFORD, Conn., July 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Connecticut Hospice, Inc., birthplace of Hospice in America, is proud to announce the arrival of six Nurse Scholars from The Henrietta Szold-Hadassah-Hebrew University School of Nursing, Jerusalem Israel, in conjunction with New York University College of Nursing.

Lauren Brown, MSN, Co-Director of Education, together with Marianne Treantafilos, APRN, architect of the Norma F. Pfriem International Fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Nursing, stated that, "this is the second time in as many years that the nursing scholars have arrived from Israel. The Directors noted that part of their work will require the nurse scholars to clinically round with the interdisciplinary team at 6:30 every morning."

The Connecticut Hospice, Inc. will provide these post-graduate nurses with the opportunity to assess the multi-dimensional needs of new or continuing patients and families receiving care in the Hospice Hospital of Palliative Care setting and the Hospice Homecare setting. The nurse scholars will observe communication modalities used by the Hospice nurses, APRNs, physicians and other staff with patients and families to help the patients/families reach their ultimate goals.

Nurse scholars will learn the key elements of assessment of patients with irreversible disease, including physical symptoms, as well as psychosocial and spiritual aspects of care. The graduate nurses and the Connecticut Hospice nurse preceptors will have the opportunity to reflect on professional and personal challenges of caring for patients at the end of life.
