This textbook on palliative social work is a companion volume to the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine and the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing. To that end, this chapter will accomplish the following:

Opportunities abound for social work and nursing collaboration as nurses and social workers provide holistic integrative care for patients and their families informed by best practices from both professions.

Specific strategies to enhance successful collaboration by nurses and social workers as members of interdisciplinary teams include role clarity, open communication, fluidity, collective ownership of goals, self and team reflection; and structural support.
