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:

Palliative and end-of-life care is an emerging specialty area with an evolving science providing multiple opportunities to design studies that link social work practice and research questions.

Social workers practitioners across all settings must integrate critical thinking in the selection and evaluation of interventions that will meet the needs and values of patients and families requiring palliative and end-of-life care.

Social workers across all settings can build partnerships with community stakeholders, palliative care specialists, and skilled research teams to plan research studies that will promote the growth of palliative and end-of-life social work.
