Counselor / Social Worker
University of New Mexico Hospital This full-time position supports patients and their families as they adjust to the impact of a cancer or bleeding disorder diagnosis over time, from diagnosis to survivorship, end of life, or transition to adult care. We serve pediatric oncology and hematology, survivorship, and adult hematology, with most of our time spent in pediatric oncology. Our team currently consists of two social workers and one case manager.
This position assesses areas impacted by diagnosis and treatment, and connects families to resources to address these. Topics we may discuss are educational impact and supports, financial impact of treatment and financial assistance, insurance, lodging and travel for treatment, sibling support, and coping with disease trajectory. As patients transition into adulthood, we may discuss how to advocate for their health and educational needs, and assist with naming a Power of Attorney as applicable. Social work helps families utilize strengths and connect with local and national resources to support their well-being. We provide information about and referrals to community resources such as counseling, summer camp, scholarships, community-based programs, and national programs providing financial assistance. We often advocate for school accommodations for children on treatment or who experience cognitive late effects of treatment. Throughout the disease trajectory, social work assesses the patient and family’s understanding of the diagnosis, treatment, and anticipated outcomes. Social work support is available to all patients and family members to assist with identifying coping mechanisms and developing coping skills in order to support their wellness. As families travel from all corners of New Mexico, we are available to review travel and lodging options if there is a need. Social Work is skilled in joining providers and families to discuss transitions in care and goals, such as involving hospice or deciding to end treatment.
