One of your friends was just released from the hospital. She was pleased with her care but was not sure about her physician, who told her she was a “hospitalist.” You had not heard of the term before either.
Perform an Internet search on the term “hospitalist.” Define the term and find out if there are any current statistics on hospitalist use.
Your mother is a volunteer at a hospice facility. She often comes home emotionally exhausted. You have never visited a hospice and asked if you could go with her next time. She agrees. Prior to your visit, you want to understand the concept of a hospice.
Perform an Internet search on the subject to understand the mission and goals of hospice programs. Write up your research and share it with your mother.
As part of your internship, you will be assigned this semester to an adult day services center. You are only familiar with child day care centers so you decide to do some research before you start your internship.
