The evaluation of hospice home care volunteers.


A national sample of 139 hospice volunteer coordinators rated a series of statements about volunteer behaviors in terms of their importance to volunteer performance. Each statement had to be rated at least 8 on a scale of 10 by 75% of the respondents in order to be included in the final instrument. This procedure yielded a scale of 27 descriptors of appropriate volunteer behavior. The scale is intended for use by hospice volunteer coordinators who want a tool with which to offer concrete, behavior based, constructive feedback to volunteers about their performance.
