    Abstract

    Social work has an important role in the delivery of meaningful palliative, end of life and bereavement care. Some social workers are palliative care social workers, working in services which specialise in this area of support. All social workers will encounter people who are experiencing loss, the end of life or bereavement. This resource aims to ensure that people benefit from good social work at the end of their life, and that those close to them are supported during this time and into bereavement.
