Cancer Program social worker job description

    ​Hello! We are in the process of expanding our cancer program to include additional staff to support our ONNs. I am wondering if anyone who has a dedicated social worker for their cancer program would be able to share the job description?

    Many thanks!

    Hi Joanna,

    Having a dedicated social worker for your oncology patients will be so valuable! We have several that work in our outpatient and inpatient population.

    Unfortunately, I don't have access to their job descriptions, however, I'm wondering if you access the Association of Oncology Social Work at https://www.aosw.org/
    if this would provide you more information.

    Regards,
    Darcy

    I've attached a copy of our BSW job description. We have two full time social workers who work closely with our navigators and financial counselors. They are so knowledgeable of resources available to patients and families.   I consider them sometimes to be miracle workers.  They have helped so many of our patient in so many ways.

    I have attached our social worker Competency Based Orientation (CBO) plan that might be a helpful tool for implementing the role of social workers in your navigation program.
