Our vision in developing the Five Wishes online training courses is that all healthcare staff in all care settings understand how to engage in effective, compassionate advance care planning conversations so that however a person arrives at end of life – whether through accident or illness - their wishes are known and documented, and their families are well-prepared to make end-of-life decisions.
Five Wishes partners with Relias Learning, the national leader in post-acute care learning, to offer these courses to all healthcare providers. Relias helps providers deliver better clinical and financial outcomes through targeted, personalized and engaging learning. Relias Academy is a comprehensive Continuing Education solution for individual professionals and small organizations, offering high-quality courses tailored specifically for multiple industries including senior care, health and human services.
Each one-hour course carries continuing education for nursing, social work, and nursing home administrators.
