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:

The scope of social workers' roles in palliative care range from direct clinical practice to the development of a community network across care-settings for the seamless provision of quality palliative care.

Although challenged by limited staffing, social workers play a vital role in interdisciplinary collaboration through their skillful engagement with people of various backgrounds, comprehensive assessment, and connecting necessary resources.
