In medical settings such as a hospital, a Social Worker is often involved as part of the interdisciplinary team. A Social Worker may be asked to be present to provide support to the patient or family in discussing diagnoses, prognosis, or end-of-life issues. A Social Worker may also be needed to support the family when the death of the patient is imminent and after the loss of their loved one.
