SWHPN 2018 AWARDS RECIPIENTS

Each year, SWHPN members nominate their peers to recognize outstanding achievements in social work hospice and palliative care.  Winners are then recognized at the annual General Assembly.  We are pleased to announce this year’s winners, and will showcase their work on Monday, March 12, 2018, at the 6th Annual General Assembly in Boston, MA.  


Allison “Allie” Shukraft, MSW, MAT, Carolinas Healthcare System has been selected to receive the 2018 Emerging Leader Award.  This Award is designed to honor a palliative social worker with six or less years of experience in the field who has already demonstrated significant contributions. Emerging Leaders show potential to move the field forward and evidence of excellence and innovation in any of the following areas: professional practice, leadership, research, education, and/or policy and advocacy work.


Katherine Supiano, PhD, LCSW, University of Utah will receive the Excellence in Psychosocial Research Award.  The recipient of this award demonstrates an ongoing consistent record of research and publication that adds/contributes significantly to the body of knowledge in psychosocial palliative care, hospice, grief, loss, and bereavement.

PDIA award winners have had a national or international impact on the field for at least 15 years and have dedicated themselves to advancing the development or improvement of psychosocial palliative care for individuals with chronic illness, individuals in hospice, or those confronting grief, loss and bereavement.
