Christine Beamon, LCSW, CCM

Date: Saturday, June 5, 2021

Login:  9:30am - 10:00am

  Presentation: 10:00am - 1:00pm



During this seminar, Mrs. Beamon will define the role of palliative social work in acute care and outpatient settings in supporting individuals and families. She will offer education in communication and coping strategies during serious illness and further your understanding in NYS policies in medical decision making for the adult population. She will also highlight the differences in palliative and hospice care in inpatient and community settings.

Social workers are positioned as part of an integral part of interdisciplinary palliative care teams, and healthcare institutions. Palliative social workers enhance communication between primary medical teams and patients/families to increase understanding of illness, aid in medical decision making, and engage in advance care planning. Palliative social workers facilitate comprehensive bedside assessment of the patient’s adjustment process and highlight coping skills to improve quality of life through biopsychosocial lens of care to patients of all ages, and diseases.
