Stephanie Wladowski, PhD, LMSW, APHSW-C

Scholar, 2023

Dr.   Wladkowski is the Larry & Patty Benz Professor and an Associate Professor   of Social Work at Bowling Green State University. She earned her doctorate   from Simmons University School of Social Work and holds a Masters in Social   Work from Boston College and a Masters in Applied Educational   Psychology-School Counseling from Northeastern University.  Dr. Wladkowski has   several years of clinical practice experience as an independent licensed   social worker in hospice and palliative care, which directly informs her   research and teaching in health, aging, interprofessional education, and   end-of-life care.  

Dr. Wladkowski’s main research interest is focused on live discharge from   hospice, or when individuals stop receiving hospice care due to no longer   meeting the eligibility requirements. She continues to advance knowledge in   this under-researched area through exploring the impact of live discharge on   individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their caregivers, with careful   attention to policy implications, and the practice opportunities. As a   recipient of the Cambia Health Foundation Sojourns Scholar Leadership   Program, Dr. Wladkowski aims to develop an assessment protocol for live   discharge from hospice to be implemented across health care settings and   interdisciplinary teams.
