A defini- tion of palliative care is to bring relief, but not to cure. A team approach to care consists of the physician, nurse, social worker, chaplain, medical director, volunteer coordinator, and volunteers, who all work together to provide care and support for the patient and family. Asocial worker with expertise in palliative care is a central member of the hospice palliative care team. The discipline of social work is often poorly understood. Social workers are extensively trained in psychology and family systems. Consideration of the patient, the family, and social circumstances are necessary to provide complete palliative care. The core tasks of the palliative care social worker include assessment and intervention. The social worker's assessments might include: * The patient's reaction to the illness and the implication of the illness in his/her life, values and beliefs, goals of care * The family's strengths and difficulties * Physical resources (home, finances, etc.) * Social resources (support of family, friends, church, and community) Interventions on the part of the social worker may encompass: * Providing needed information * Aiding in effective communication within the patient/lhmily unit * Promoting confidence to make decisions * Providing needed resources * Providing insight into the family's adjustment, strengths and needs * Assisting in practical planning and linking with social services * Helping with finances and insurance benefits * Assisting with health care directives * Providing bereavement services after the patient's death. Creating a positive hospice team and patient relationship is important in helping the patient and family through the demands of coping with a terminal illness. Building on patient and family strengths creates a bond between the hospice team and the patient and family; a bond which gives the patient and family feelings of confidence. With added confidence, the patient and family become more willing and more able to assist the hospice team. They become true experts in their own care.
