Medical Social Workers assist patients and their families in need of psychosocial and financial help. Medical Social Workers assess the psychosocial functioning of patients and families and intervene as necessary.
Medical Social Workers have a number of roles and responsibilities when it comes to supporting our patients and their families. Medical Social Workers offer psychosocial counseling, case management, grief counseling, and referrals. Medical Social Workers are also expert at handling many issues surrounding terminal illness, severe and sudden disability, end of life decisions, independent living resources, and medication adherence and management.
Our Medical Social Worker Services include:
Helping families to address and support their medical conditions through counseling is an important part of the Medical Social Worker’s role. Medical Social Workers may lead support group discussions and provide individual counseling to help patients address their medical conditions and treatment. Counseling and emotional support is a crucial aspect of any patient’s health care plan, especially when he or she is living with a chronic illness or condition.
