Social work provides a broad range of services to help with the many psychological, social, cultural, financial, and continuing care needs of patients undergoing treatment for cancer. Social workers help patients and families adjust to life changes that result from their illness, treatment, and hospitalization. They provide emotional support, counseling, and referrals. Start working with a social worker whenever you feel like you could use some support, information, or other services before, during, or after your treatment.
For more information or a referral, consult with your care team.
