Hospice Nuts and Bolts is unlike any Hospice 101 or 201 class you have ever attended. This is a virtual, intensive 2-day program presented by Corridor. The program is designed to reinforce the regulatory and compliance components of hospice for all clinicians and individuals in leadership positions in hospice organizations.

Physical course materials and a questionnaire will be sent to registrants in advance, so please register early!

This program, developed and taught by Corridor, covers the Conditions of Participation in detail, including the Medicare benefit from a clinical perspective including eligibility, recertification, what is covered and what is not, levels of care, revocation, discharge and transfer. Throughout the program focus is placed on documentation throughout the continuum of care, including documentation regarding eligibility,

levels of care, symptom management and the Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs). In addition, the Comprehensive Assessment and the “rules” surrounding the Plan of Care. Significant focus will be placed  on the interdisciplinary team (IDT) including their form and function and the IDT meeting. Facility based care is also highlighted in this program to assist in understanding the importance of care coordination and both the hospice and the facility responsibilities.


Quality Assessment Performance Improvement will be covered in detail, including how QAPI and corporate compliance work hand in hand. Compliance and compliance risk areas will be covered in detail, including details on enforcing agencies.
