Mission statement

The mission: raise the bar for hospice social workers

We can strengthen hospice as a positive institution by empowering fellow social workers to fully and confidently embrace the entire scope of their domain. This is hard to do in a field where there are very few specific University preparation programs, very few confident hospice social worker mentors, and very few hospices with robust hospice social worker skill development programs.

The aim of this writing is to help social workers know what their role is in hospice and how to succeed in that role: for patients, for their team members, for the field of hospice in general, and for their own career development and personal satisfaction.

The aim of this writing is to make hospice better by making the hospice social workers stronger, by empowering you to do consistently outstanding work.
