Határidő: 2015. november 17.

We are the co-chairs of the European Association of Palliative Care tasks force ( http://www.eapcnet.eu/Themes/Education/Socialwork.aspx A hivatkozásra kattintva elhagyja a weboldalt) which is aiming to produce a detailed descriptive analysis of the tasks and roles of palliative care social workers in Europe. The EAPC produced a white paper on the core competencies of palliative care social workers which was published in the European Journal of Palliative Care, in November 2014/January 2015 and together with our analysis we intend to make recommendations about specialist education for generic social work training at undergraduate and post graduate levels. Therefore, we need your help. Please participate in our survey on the roles and tasks of palliative care social workers in Europe.

The survey consists of 2 parts:

Part 1 is a questionnaire to be filled in by you as the national umbrella organization. We would be grateful if you please follow this link https://www.umfrageonline.com/s/c2d5fc0 A hivatkozásra kattintva elhagyja a weboldalt and fill in the questionnaire as soon as possible. It takes only 10-15 minutes. Deadline is 17th November 2015.

Part 2 is a questionnaire for individual palliative care social workers. We would like to send this out to individual social workers. In question 4 of the Part 1survey we ask for help in distribution. In some countries there are formal and informal groups of palliative care social workers if you know of such an organization in your country please can you include details on the Part 1survey so that we can be in touch.

The data generated will be scientifically analyzed by Prof. Dr. Maria Wasner Munich, Vice President of the German Association of Palliative Care (DGP).

We are happy to be contacted about this survey.

Thank you for your support!
