New resource published on The Role of the Social Worker in Palliative, End of Life and Bereavement Care
This new resource lays out what palliative care social work entails and the important contribution that social workers can make to support people at the end of life, and those close to them.
It outlines the knowledge and skills demonstrated by social workers in this field, and the steps that everyone can take to get more out of palliative care social work and social work at end of life and in bereavement.
The resource was developed by the Association of Palliative Care Social Workers in collaboration with the former College of Social Work, working alongside Making Waves Lived Experience Network/Open Futures Research to ensure that it was informed by the voices of people with lived experience. It is supported by the British Association of Social Workers, the independent voice of social work in the UK, and by Hospice UK.
