Animal Hospice and Palliative Care Social Work Certificate


(Tammy Wynn) #1

Hi Everyone,
I’m thrilled to announce:

The International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care is now offering an NASW approved Animal Hospice and Palliative Care Social Work Certificate. The AHPC SW certificate program is a 61 hour NASW approved continuing education program that is presented in ten modules, nine online (37.5 hours) and one onsite at the IAAHPC conference (23.5 hours). The program begins with an overview of fundamental concepts and progresses to cover the unique challenges of providing veterinary medical, nursing, and psychosocial support as related to the animal hospice model. The program is designed to be completed over a four to 16 month period. The flexible format is designed to allow students to create a curriculum timeline that best fits their busy schedule and CE renewal cycle. Online modules are composed of streaming lectures and activities that students can complete and submit at their own pace. To be part of the first graduating class obtaining the AHPC Social Work Certificate in Tempe Arizona this October, you must register by August 15, 2018. Membership in the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care is required.
