Volunteers in hospice and palliative care

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the training and education of volunteers. Although these terms are often used interchangeably, they have subtle differences. Throughout this chapter, training means the act or process of teaching or learning a specified skill, especially by practice. Education, on the other hand, means developing intellectual, social, and moral skills through systematic instruction. The discussion also includes the voluntary (could), statutory (must), and mandatory (should) elements of volunteer training and education.

Keywords:   training, education, volunteers, differences, specified skill, systematic instruction, elements, voluntary, statutory, mandatory
