Social Work

Medical Social Workers assess the psychosocial functioning of patients and families and intervene as necessary. Interventions may include connecting patients to necessary resources and supports in the community; supportive counseling or grief counseling; or helping a patient to expand and strengthen their network of social supports (for example, Social Services programs like Medicaid, Food Stamps and HEAP).
