Oklahoma-based hospice pharmacy provider chooses Relias’ industry-leading hospice library to enhance internal and customer staff training and compliance.
CARY, NC, July 8, 2015 – Palliative Drug Care (PDC), the hospice industry’s leader in innovative pharmacy services, is partnering with Relias Learning, the leader in online training and compliance solutions for the healthcare market, to deliver hospice training to further staff education and compliance among the company’s staff – and to share the benefit of Relias’ robust palliative care training with their network of customers.
Palliative Drug Care standardizes patient care and prescription cost management solutions through the use of tools specifically designed for hospice organizations. PDC will now add online education to the value-added services they offer to their clients.

The Relias Hospice Library features more than 175 courses for online staff education and compliance, including the popular End of Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) training.
“We are excited to partner with Palliative Drug Care to bring this education to their network of hospices,” says Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias Learning. “Hospice and palliative care is an increasingly important component of the post-acute care continuum and vital to quality of care at the end of life. We are pleased to offer such a robust library to serve caregivers in this market.”
