Oncology Social Services

Cancer can present many stressors for your patients: emotional, financial, legal, and more. Premier Health’s oncology social workers focus on supporting your patients with cancer. Learn more about how they can help.

Your oncology social worker can meet with you and your family to complete a comprehensive psychosocial assessment of your oncology needs. Your social worker then can assist you in meeting your identified needs to fit your life circumstances. 

Social workers assist with referrals for:

  • Community resources
  • Counseling
  • Counseling and support on financial issues
  • Support groups
  • Caregiver support
  • Transportation
  • Medical equipment
  • Home care
  • Palliative care
  • End-of-life care
  • Advance directives
  • Advocacy
  • Coordination of health care insurance and disability concerns
  • Medication assistance

If you would like assistance from an oncology social worker, please talk to your doctor or nurse, who can request a referral.
