Social workers are aware of a wide range of hospice care services and resources which are available to patients, so the author strives to give a detailed overview about the legislation on benefits that may apply to patients in hospice care and their relatives. The presence of social work in hospice care is a relatively new phenomenon. The main purpose of this study is to clarify the place and role of social workers within the interdisciplinary team.
