Graduate Minor in Advanced Study in Holistic Hospice and Palliative Care

About the Graduate Minor

The graduate minor in Advanced Study in Holistic Hospice and Palliative Care provides students with a mind-body-spirit approach to end-of-life care. Graduates develop mastery in providing compassionate spiritual care to patients and their families.

The use of Complementary and Integrative Health (CIH) therapies within the scope of end-of-life care provides practitioners the tools needed to treat the holistic spectrum of the patient and their family, while integrating an effective and efficient delivery of care.

This approach to end-of-life care is driven by the principle of patient-centered care that eliminates unnecessary hospital re-admission and costly medical treatments, while alleviating pain and suffering.
