This project sounds incredibly important! As someone involved in hospice grief support, I understand the critical need for best practices in handling malignant wounds. The right care can significantly impact a patient's comfort and dignity in their final days. Volunteering for this project could make a real difference, helping to develop guidelines that ensure the highest quality of care. It's a meaningful way to contribute to the well-being of patients and their families during such a challenging time. Thank you for putting out this call for volunteers; it's a great opportunity for those who want to make a tangible impact in the field of hospice care.
