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:

Reflective palliative social work practice offers rich opportunities for vicarious learning.

Intentional legacy building implies conscious awareness of our transient nature.

Reflective palliative social work shows us how lessons learned have application in our personal life and leads to increased authenticity in practice.

A commitment to “professionalism” asks that palliative social workers have the courage to seek excellence in their delivery of care, which is enhanced when we regularly and intentfully reflect upon the impact that we are having and the legacy that we are creating.
