As part of the inter-professional team of end-of-life caregivers, social workers are exposed to multiple stressors. This can be in their work with dying individuals and their families as well as in their functioning within rapidly changing health care organizations. This course explores the unique professional stress of social workers in end-of-life care settings and offers practical protective mechanisms and coping strategies.
