Abstract
Hospice and palliative care team members--especially social workers and counselors--will find the empirical evidence and compassionate advice they need to provide the most holistic psychosocial care possible to individuals who are dying or bereaved. Encompassing the patients' and families' journeys through diagnosis, treatment, recurrence, palliative care, and bereavement, this guide also identifies the key transitions that most dying patients and their families face, and describes the interventions that are most likely to help. Included throughout are personal reflections and experiences of social workers and other team members, common major challenges to the healthcare team, and important considerations for each transition. Practical resources appearingin every chapter include the Palliative Performance Scale, stage-appropriate assessment questions, intervention recommendations, case studies, and reflective activities.
