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:

Chronic kidney disease patients have many palliative care concerns, including but not limited to pain, advance care planning, high mortality, and end of life.

Every dialysis and kidney transplant center has a master's-level social worker who can integrate the eight domains of palliative care into the practice.

Chronic kidney disease patients have the right to start, refuse, or discontinue dialysis at any time.

Kidney disease interdisciplinary teams need more education and familiarity with palliative care.

There are unique issues related to hospice provision for chronic kidney disease patients.
