Medical Social Workers (MSW) have a graduate degree in the field and work with patients and their families in need of psychosocial help. Medical social workers assess the psychosocial functioning of patients and families and intervene as necessary.
Interventions may include connecting patients and families to necessary resources and supports in the community; providing psychotherapy, supportive counseling or grief counseling; or helping a patient to expand and strengthen their network of social supports.
Medical social workers typically work on an interdisciplinary team with professionals of other disciplines (such as medicine, nursing, physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapy).
