Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice was selected by SAGE Video to participate in "In Practice Video Series."

SAGE is currently developing a large collection of short, educational videos designed to supplement their collection of texts and academic materials by extending learning to practice - to show students and professors how the skills and theories in the texts can be applied in the workplace. The videos are developed to demonstrate effective practices and well as spark discussion and reflection in the classroom.

The Hospice was selected to participate in the Social Work field. Through interviews and footage of hospice social works in the field and in office students will be able to see the skills, traits and practices involved in the field as they are applied to day to day activities and interactions.

"We were very honored to be the selected hospice for this education series," said Marlina Schetting, chief operating officer, Administrator at the Hospice. "Out of all the hospices, nationwide, our name and reputation earned us this opportunity. It says a lot about the work we do and the impact this hospice has had nationwide."

Five Pebbles, a production company, led the development, production and editing of the entire series. They produce award-winning videos and online courses to support professional development, online learning, preservice training and public service. They sent a small team to capture footage on a two-day shooting schedule.

SAGE Publishing is a leading international publisher of higher-education textbooks, academic journals, digital resources and one of the largest independent academic publishers in the world, with offices in Thousand Oaks, CA, Washington D.C., and London.The videos can be viewed by visiting KarenAnnQuinlanHospice.org/SocialWork.

The segments give an overview of the organization and a closer look at one of the one component of the interdisciplinary team that is assigned to each patient.
