SWHPN Awards UMSSW's John Cagle

UMSSW's John Cagle, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor awarded the 2022 PDIA Social Work Leadership Award

The Social Work Hospice & Palliative Care Network is committed to fostering and encouraging social work excellence in psychosocial research, education, and clinical practice in hospice and palliative care.
Originating with the Open Society Institute’s Project on Death in America’s initiative to understand and transform the culture and experience of dying and bereavement, the PDIA Social Work Leadership Award is designed to honor an individual who has made an outstanding professional contribution in the palliative care. PDIA awardees 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. Awardees typically have made a singular contribution to the development and understanding of palliative care and bereavement that historically has and will continue to distinguish his/her work.
