Title

This unique book provides a rare look at social work and palliative care from the perspective of the service user. It is also the first to investigate specialist palliative care social work from this viewpoint.Drawing on new original research, the authors examine service users' experiences of social work and palliative care, investigating in particular the effects of culture and difference on this experience and analysing care based on the users' remarks. The writers then link service users' comments to broader debates and developments in social work and consider the relevance of the book's findings to the formation of policy and practice.A groundbreaking text, Palliative Care, Social Work and Service Users will be of particular interest to social work professionals, palliative care workers, researchers and policy makers.
