Partnering with the Community
Hospice of the Valley is excited to offer community social workers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the vital contribution social workers make for patients and families living with chronic and terminal illness.
We are excited to begin our Hospice and Palliative Care Social Work Fellowship, set for Sept 30–Oct 1, 2021 from 8 a.m.– 5 p.m., at Hospice of the Valley’s central office. This fellowship is now full, but we still encourage you to apply, so your name can be added to our waitlist. Please use the button below.
Fellows will spend two days walking the walk with patients on hospice or palliative care and the interdisciplinary teams that serve them. The two days will consist of a didactic orientation to hospice and palliative care, along with opportunities to shadow home visits and hospice inpatient units with a Hospice of the Valley social worker. We conclude with an engaging session designed to explore, share and integrate the hospice experience into practice. Contact hours and a certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the two-day fellowship.

“I will be able to speak more knowledgably to my patients about the benefits of hospice care…and the process to access hospice services.”
“This experience was a great example of what teamwork can do to improve quality patient care. I will take this teamwork concept back to our social workers and medical staff.”
“The best thing about the fellowship was the experience of being with the hospice social workers and getting a better understanding of challenges, skill set and ‘rhythm’ of their work.”
