The Advanced Palliative and Social Work Certification Board of Directors is excited to announce the transition of the APHSW-C program to the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center (HPCC). The APHSW-C program will join the five hospice and palliative care programs within the HPCC certification portfolio. 

“Because hospice and palliative care are interprofessional and team-based, it only makes sense that the professions should join in their efforts to develop and maintain certification of the involved specialties,” said Barbara Head, PhD, CHPN, ACSW, FPCN, APHSW-C, a member of the APHSW Board of Directors. “I am excited about the synergy that will result when we join forces in this important endeavor.”
