Social Work Hospice & Palliative Care Network Receives $7,500 Education Grant from the Hospice & Palliative Nurses Foundation

The Hospice & Palliative Nurses Foundation (the philanthropic arm of the Hospice Palliative Nurses Association [HPNA]) is proud to announce that it has provided a $7,500 educational grant to the Social Work Hospice & Palliative Care Network (SWHPN).

“The creative educational collaboration of HPNA and SWHPN caught the attention of the American Nurses Foundation (ANF) which is the philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association,” stated Ginger Marshall, HPNA and HPNF CEO. “HPNA’s efforts in provision of nursing educational COVID-19 resources was recognized by ANF with a $15,000 grant. ANF shared with us that they were especially impressed with the webinar co-hosted by HPNA and SWHPN on June 23, 2020 titled: A Conversation on Guilt, Trauma, and Reactions to Changing Practices during COVID-19. The Webinar was a joint effort and we felt it was important to share the ANF grant with SWHPN.”

Interdisciplinary collaboration is key to the successful patient outcomes in the care of patients with serious illness. The June 23rd webinar attendees hailed the webinar as a success indicating their appreciation of HPNA and SWHPN using the same interdisciplinary approach to education.

“We congratulate HPNA for receiving the initial grant from ANF, and we are thrilled to accept the funds from the Hospice & Palliative Nurses Foundation,” said Jessica Strong, Executive Director of SWHPN. “During a time of rapid changes and needing to quickly implement new policies and practices, it is imperative that members of the interdisciplinary team learn together, in order to work best together to serve patients. We will be applying these funds to help with additional professional development needs for social workers, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with HPNA on additional programming.”

HPNA and SWHPN have already begun planning their next joint webinar which will be presented in 2021.
