A clinical social worker is a professional counselor who helps to assess and alleviate problems related to personal, family, or social situations. Clinical social workers are a vital part of the rehabilitation multidisciplinary team, and help provide support for the patient and family, coordinate discharge planning and insurance benefits, and assist with financial problems and family conflicts.
UAB has five oncology social workers who can help you manage the challenges cancer treatment can present.
