Tuesday 17 March is World Social Work Day and this year’s theme is Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships.
World Social Work Day is when we celebrate and recognise social workers as champions for social justice, self-determination and human rights.
Social workers are skilled, knowledgeable and specialise in a range of issues relating to wellbeing. Available at all Monash Health sites, Social Workers assist patients, their families and carers to help navigate the health system, and ensure that their social, emotional and cultural needs are met.
Monash Health Social Workers work alongside medical, nursing and other allied health staff as part of the multi-disciplinary treating team.
