Oncology Social Worker

Hear directly from social workers who are dedicated to helping cancer patients and their families.

Social workers who work specifically in oncology may help support cancer patients and their families navigate a variety of issues: dealing with a new diagnosis and treatment, mental health, finances, and more.

Usually, they are available in larger healthcare centers and hospitals, but if you are at a community hospital, don't be afraid to ask for help. They may have someone else who offers the same kind of assistance.
