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:

Use of integrative medicine and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased.

Seventy-four percent of U.S. health care consumers use CAM already (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine-NCCAM, 2002).

Integrative medicine and CAM are currently offered in most health care settings, studied and published in major peer-reviewed journals, taught in medical settings, and are responsible for an increased expenditure of health care dollars.

Integrative medicine, CAM, social work, and palliative care share similar values and approaches toward care.
