Death Doula Practical Application

About the program

Home Hospice Association’s Death Doula Practical Application is designed to provide continuing education and practical experience for death doulas who are looking to supplement the theoretical knowledge they gained from trainings previously completed through different organizations or institutions.


This program's focus on practice workshops and role-play scenarios creates a more hands-on approach to being a death doula and will give you the opportunity to apply theory to realistic situations.


Learning at your own pace opens the door to the pursuit of your passion and calling... register today!
