Clinical Education

At Lower Cape Fear Hospice, our health care team is dedicated to quality, compassionate patient care. Our physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses have extensive expertise in pain management and end-of-life health care issues.

We collaborate with UNCW, UNC School of Medicine/SEAHEC, Cape Fear Community College, and Brunswick Community College to offer clinical education opportunities for nursing students and health care professionals to meet clinical curriculum needs.

Our team members are available to provide in-service presentations to area physician groups. Use our form to contact us for more information.


“This workshop has provided me with a new perspective and appreciation about hospice care and its purpose. The information from the doctor’s and patient’s perspectives and connecting with others who are going through this process has been so helpful for me. It really creates a nice circle to help all of us grow, give and do better.”
