Welcome to the home of the Association of Palliative Care Social Workers (APCSW).
Our aim is to create a shared space where members and non-members can find the latest news, hear about upcoming events, share views and experiences and to provide support for all social work practitioners working within the palliative care.
About APCSW – we've created new Vision and Mission statements for the Association and provided a brief history.The role of a palliative care social worker can be wide ranging and differs significantly depending on setting, employer and history. We’ve tried to summarise the key common elements from across the country. The people behind the APCSW – you’ll also be able to find the details of the current National Committee including fully up to date contact details for the Regional Reps around the country News, views and blogs – to make sure you’re always in the know we’ve pulled together all the latest news from the world of palliative care and social work. We've also introduced a new blog section for members and notable commentators to stimulate discussion and debate. Finally, we’ve introduced a new 'Dates For The Diary' section where we will be posting details of up and coming national and regional events being organised by the Association along with those from other bodies that we feel might be of interest.
