NASW Standards for Social Work Practice in Palliative and End of Life Care

Aging, Health, Hospice & Palliative Care

NASW Standards

2004

All social workers, regardless of practice settings, will inevitably work with clients facing acute or long-term situations involving life-limiting illness, dying, death, grief, and bereavement. The NASW Standards for Palliative & End of Life Care are designed to enhance social workers’ awareness of the skills, knowledge, values, methods, and sensitivities needed to work effectively with clients, families, health care providers, and the community when working in end of life situations.

About NASW Standards
