We are delighted that clinical rotations have recommenced at Connecticut Hospice, following a temporary hold forced by COVID-19.  

On July 13 CEO Barbara Pearce and Medical Director Dr. Joseph Sacco welcomed Hospice and Palliative Care Fellows Dr. Alex Choi and Dr. Bryan Terry for orientation prior to their rotations with Connecticut Hospice in partnership with Yale-New Haven Medical Center's Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program.

While at Connecticut Hospice, they will spend time Inpatient and in Home Care with the Interdisciplinary Team, and will expand their knowledge and experience in all aspects of hospice and palliative care, including:

  • obtaining a comprehensive medical history and physical exam,
  • the interdisciplinary approach to developing a plan of care for patients and their families,
  • facilitating family meetings, seeking patient and family goals, advance directive completion, conflict resolution, and other key events in patient care,
  • the scope, practice, and history of hospice and palliative medicine,
  • assessing and treating pain and other symptoms effectively,
  • recognizing common psychological stressors and disorders experienced by patients and families facing life-threatening conditions,

Recognized nationally and internationally as a pioneering hospice and palliative care teaching institution through its educational branch, The John D. Thompson Hospice Institute for Education and Learning, Connecticut Hospice is proud to share its expertise with clinicians from around the country and the world.  We look forward to welcoming Dr. Faisal Radwi of Saudi Arabia shortly.
