As the world responds to a pandemic crisis, hospice and palliative care social workers have been discussing how we can be of service to one another, to other social workers, and to the larger hospice and palliative care community.
To that end, Social Work Palliative Care and Hospice Network (SWHPN) social workers will be hosting virtual chat rooms on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 pm Eastern for any social worker as well as any hospice and palliative professional on a weekly basis.
These discussions will be focused on being safe places for clinicians and colleagues to share feelings and fears in an effort to find renewal, support, and social connection.
Tuesday, May 5th: Open Discussion
Thursday, May 7th: Topic: New Normal. What does the "new normal" for hospice and palliative social work look like, and what can we do to ensure that our field is equipped to support patients, families, and colleagues? What are you hoping for, what are you worried about?
Tuesday, May 12th: Open Discussion
Thursday, May 14th: Topic: Transitions. How has your role changed since COVID-19? If you're working from home or have changed locations, what support do you need? How are you adapting? What things will remain post-COVID?
We will continue to update our topics here as the weeks go on.
Attendance is free. Please register to receive a reminder when the chat room is open.
