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:

Advocacy is not optional; it is one of our profession's ethical obligations and a cornerstone of social work practice.

All social workers have the responsibility to cultivate and role-model leadership skills whatever their job title may be.

Social workers at all levels of practice need to seek leadership opportunities in order to ensure that we are part of the decision-making process shaping palliative care.

Elevating the professionalism of social work requires individual self-awareness and ongoing professional development and integrity.
