2020 General Assembly Registration 

The SWHPN General Assembly is a one-of-a-kind experience in learning, fellowship, and self-care for hospice and palliative care professionals, including:
  • In-depth learning from the experts: SWHPN is again offering our popular series of pre-conference workshops giving you the chance to learn from leaders in the field in a smaller, more intimate environment. 
  • New in 2020! Lightning Talks: short, fun, fast-paced talks that are less than 8 minutes in length, presented back to back with other presenters in a one-hour or 90-minute general session, on a very specific topic.
  • Poster Walks: Join your colleagues on a guided poster walk in the main conference room, and listen in as presenters  showcase their work. Conference chairs will lead small groups around curated, pre-selected posters.
  • The highest-quality plenaries and breakout sessions: from professional development to sharing the latest research on and clinical practice, ethics, and policy, SWHPN 2019 will once again offer the most comprehensive, diverse learning opportunities for palliative and hospice professionals.
  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
    • The Annual Assembly has been approved for 10.5 CE hours by the National Association of Social Workers (#886597919-6687). You can receive up to 2 additional hours for optional learning sessions during lunch (for a total of 12.5 CEs), and 6 additional hours by attending two pre-conference sessions (for a total of up to 18.5 CEs).
