Role Play really helped with team building within our group. Feel more connected to these peers than I usually do in class/conference settings.
Upon coming to the course we were warmly greeted, setting the tone for the entire conference. It makes a big difference, but comfortable chairs allowed us to focus. It was nice and simple, but the lady serving food, the front desk, all were great. It is a great experience. Easily the best conference I have been in, in 7 years and I go to 4-5 a year.
Overall excellent course! Will recommend it to all!
John and Janet are fantastic educators, and have shared so much expertise in the course. I hope to one day be as skilled as they are. I enjoyed the role plays and that we kept the same people but rotated facilitators. I want to be Janet when I grow up.
My goal was to gain confidence in the specialty of PC. I’ve gained it! I cannot wait to use my new -found confidence into practice Monday. Thank You. I highly recommend this course!
I felt very supported and cared for through the whole course. Great Information provided.
The course material and facilitators were absolutely fantastic. As a new provider, this course was essential to help develop skills and knowledge.
Excellent. Well worth the investment.
This week-long course strengthened my confidence in this work. Almost 20 years doing Palliative Care from Administrative to clinical. You can always continue to grow in this work. This has been a life-changing week for me, to feel supported, encouraged and nurtured with good food, has given me momentum to continue to strive forward in the evolution of Palliative Medicine. Thank You.
Thank you to the staff for their insight and guidance. They entertained questions with patience. Palliative Care principles and practices were explained and “made personal” to my particular circumstances.
This was a wonderful, invaluable, practice-changing, life-changing course! Thank you so much!
Very informative, concise and the lessons, as well as the event, were well organized.
In all of my endeavors, I try to align myself with others who do it best. Adventuring into palliative care is no different – I want to learn from those who do it best. The group at Four Seasons is at least one of the best if not the best. They show their passions and it’s contagious.
What a wonderful experience – to be immersed in a course filled with an incredible breadth of information about Palliative Care – From A-Z – and presented by brilliant clinicians. It felt like a retreat with a wonderful new community rather than a conference. Thank You!!
Excellent! Well organized, directly relevant to my clinical practice. Engaged leadership. Facility comfortable and conducive to learning. Not sure what to expect but continually impressed with thought and organization put into the development & execution of this course. Highly recommend the course to providers who are just starting or recently entered palliative care. Impressed with the passion that Janet & John bring to the education process.
Thank you. As a new clinician to this specialty, I felt exquisitely card for during this week. Meaning, I felt that every presenter truly cared about the quality of my education and experience during this week.
Coming into the course, my palliative care knowledge was minimal at best so I left on Monday afternoon feeling overwhelmed; however, by mid-morning on Tuesday, I was beginning to see “the light”. As the week progressed, I saw, more and more how palliative care is not only a possibility in my small community but also a pressing need. Now the challenge becomes fitting this knowledge into South Carolina’s regulations and offering PC to my community.
The course material/time was intense, but I found the experience rewarding and enlightening for what Hospice/Palliative Care providers do. I appreciated the enthusiasm of Dr. Bull/Dr. Morris as moderators, kept the people engaged. The “role playing” was difficult at times, “but” helpful to emphasize the points made during the lectures. Incidentally, I think I have gained “5 lbs” this week with the snacks, lunches, etc., (please don’t receive this as a complaint)!
What a privilege it has been to be able to attend such an incredible course. All of the instructors were so knowledgeable, caring & compassionate about the field of palliative care and hospice. The course was very comprehensive and applicable to multiple disciplines in healthcare. The role playing activities were incredibly useful to help apply the concepts discussed throughout the course. I will take back so much information to my colleagues and would recommend this course to all of my NP/PA/CNS colleagues working in oncology with a special interest in palliative care.
I’m so glad my job sent me to this course. As a nurse practitioner new to palliative care, this course has been extremely informative. Dr. Bull, Dr. Morris and all of the speakers were very knowledgeable and demonstrated expertise in palliative care. I would recommend this course to providers new to palliative care and providers that aren’t new to palliative care but haven’t attended this course before. I’m so excited to start implementing all that I learned into my daily work.
What an amazing course! I have learned so much, being a new nurse practitioner in palliative care, that I can not wait to implement the strategies that I’ve learned in the course, with my patients and families.
I very much enjoyed this course. As someone fairly new to palliative care I feel more prepared to start working in this area. It was also amazing to be in a small setting with so many skilled, compassionate care providers who work in palliative care.
I want to thank all of you. I certainly had reservations coming here being a MSW and knowing I would be one of few. I found this course very applicable to my daily work. I am enthusiastic to return to work and apply this new skill set. Thank you all, again.
Really phenomenal course from the eyes of a curious physician-researcher interested in the aging surgical patient and the chronic heart failure patient – with an interest in also improving end of life care. The course set the groundwork for strongly considering a career move over the next 3 years. Thank You !
After a long drive home and a few days to reflect, I wanted to thank you for providing an exceptional educational experience. As I told you previously, one of my “sub careers” has been continuing medical education. I have put on more than 100 conferences and as a surveyor for the ACCME and Wisconsin and Nebraska State Medical Associations, I have attended scores more. With this background, I can honestly tell you that your immersion course was the single best educational experience that I have ever attended, bar None!
