Ladies & Gentleman, presenting Crossroads University!
June 2, 2013
Like most ideas or concepts, Crossroads University started very small. “Wouldn’t it be great to have all of our educational pieces (in-services, whitepapers, etc.) in one place on the internet?” This one small question has now become a place where physicians, nurses, administrators, and others cannot only learn, but can earn Continuing Education (CE) credits about hospice-related topics and virtually anything that interests them.
The potential for this “University” was quickly recognized by the Board of Directors of the Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation as a wonderful way to further their mission of educating the public about Death and Dying, Palliative Medicine, and Hospice. Through their sponsorship, Crossroads University now can benefit their “students” in a number of ways.
Starting at the simplest of offers from the University, Administrators, Directors of Nursing, and Human Resources personnel can plan their required educational in-services from the library of topics contained inside the University. Topic explanations and presentations are available to them at a click of a button.
Other opportunities for education also exist in the library in the form of Whitepapers and Tips & Guides. These offer support to all healthcare professionals in their quest to gain insight into topics ranging from legal issues to end-of-life medical procedures and processes.
While these were wonderful developments for education, it was the partnering with Allegra Learning that has given Crossroads University its greatest opportunities for meeting its mission. Through this partnership, Crossroads University will be offering online courses and live events for actual CE’s. In 2013 alone there will be three online opportunities and three live events! Even if you can’t attend these events, they will be a part of the library that people can still access for their CE’s. Looking for a different or specific topic? By clicking through Crossroads University you can have access to all of the CE’s offered by Allegra!
Father’s Day is a time for us to honor our dads and celebrate their influence on our lives. We often show our appreciation through special tributes to their loving support. Crossroads Hospice recently honored a “Papa” of another kind with a remarkable gift that resulted in a night to remember for one beloved musician.
