On behalf of the members of the Hospice Network of Maryland, I would like to thank you for presenting at our Caring for the Caregiver, Certified Nursing Assistants, In Service & Appreciation Day last week in Columbia. Your comments, knowledge and experience in your presentation were enjoyed by all who attended. We are very fortunate to have someone like you to help us better serve staff working with the terminally ill patients and families in Maryland.
As promised, I have enclosed a copy of the evaluation form totals. As you can see from the evaluation forms, your expertise was very well received. I would also like to share a section of an email to our president from one of the attendees;
"I wanted to take a moment to share with you the experience from yesterday's CNA Appreciation Day. We have had this event for the past several years, but I feel that this particular event was by-far, the best one I have attended.
The speaker was Mark Gorkin MSW, LICSW. He was phenomenal. He is apparently known as the 'Stress Doc". He was contagiously energetic... engaging... fresh perspectives to old issues... as we as entertaining. I am leaving some literature on your desk... I hope you find him interesting... I would love to experience him as a speaker again... either in another CNA Appreciation Eventů or as a guest speaker here at Hospice."
We appreciate your time in bringing information and new perspectives to the attendees. We also look forward to working with you again in the future to bring high quality educational opportunities to the hospice and palliative care community in Maryland. Thank you once again for this great program.
