Professional Competences for Social Worker Member of Palliative Care Team: Applied Study to a Sample of Academics in the Field of Social Work in the City of Riyadh

Auther : Majeedah Alnajem

Palliative care is considered as one of the modern medical practices that attracted the attention of researchers and specialists in the field of social work. This interest in palliative care is attributed to the social worker role in the palliative care team. Although there are palliative care practices in our local hospitals, Arabic literature has failed to define the role assigned to the social workers of palliative care towards their clients. Therefore, this study aims to provide a definition and specification of the competencies of palliative care social work practitioners. A poll has been carried out to survey the opinions of a group of academic specialists in the field of social work in some Saudi universities about the competencies of palliative care social work members, which have been described by local and global researches. The aim of this is to codify palliative care to be compatible with the nature and characteristics of the local palliative care clients. Accordingly, this codification can be used to define the role of social workers in the palliative care programs offered in local hospitals. The study concluded that there is a quasi-agreement that most global components of the competencies of the social workers who are members of palliative care can be applicable locally in our hospitals.
Keywords: Professional competencies, Palliative care, Medical social work, Medical professional Team, Social worker Member of palliative care team.
