Abstract:

Palliative Care serves as an innovative, practical resource to help equip health social workers with theoretical and clinical tools to integrate palliative care principles into practice with individuals, families, teams, and institutions. In honoring the coherence of palliative care and social work, authors re-awaken the potential of thousands of health social workers to lead and inform the Institute of Medicine's mandate for high-quality, humane, patient-centered, family-focused care.
