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:

It is important to understand and identify the key skills utilized by the pediatric hospice or palliative social worker.

Health care professionals desire to understand the unique pediatric social work role on the interdisciplinary team.

Social workers learn to recognize the importance and influence of cultural factors in providing care to children and families.

Biopsychosocial-spiritual assessments and interventions are much more successful when social workers recognize and understand the differences in providing care to infants, children, and adolescents.
