NPEC Post Test #2: The Doula Way: Essentials of an EOLD Practice
1. What is the best tool of the end-of-life doula?
guided visualization and gentle tones
peaceful disposition and legacy planning
ourselves and our relationship with ourselves
2. What is the term used to describe our role that is already within and growing within mainstream healthcare?
it doesn’t really matter, they understand the difference.
3. When we discuss the end-of-life doula being a bridge to gaps in healthcare, what is appropriate? Please select all correct answers.
You are the family advocate who ensures smooth transitions in care as a person moves from advanced illness through hospice entry (if chosen) through imminent dying through early bereavement (the family).
You are an end-of-life doula who has a component of service that address pre-death, death,and the post death time period.
You are an end-of-life doula who began working with a client in a nursing home (and their family). They had to go to the hospital and you ensured smooth discharge from nursing home to smooth entry to the hospital and they had as safe a stay as possible and you facilitated discharge from the hospital and entry back to the nursing home. Even though there are people whose job it is to do those things, you made doubly sure your client did not get dropped.
4. One of the main pain points in hospice care is very late hospice admissions resulting in sometimes chaotic and frustrating experiences for families.
5. One of the main pain points in the hospital is that discharged patients often are readmitted within 30 days and there are severe financial penalties for the hospital. Does it make sense for you to petition to a home health company to be added to the support team? Or does it make sense to try and get hired by the hospital?
home health team
neither make sense.
