Social Workers

Our Pediatric Social Workers conducts interviews with families and patients to assess the psychosocial functioning. They recommend and sometime makes decisions about the best course of action for a family along with helping patients to expand and strengthen their network of social supports. The Social Worker offsets information and counseling support to families and makes referrals to support agencies. They participate in multidisciplinary teams and meetings, for example child protection and mental health. The Social Workers maintain accurate records and preparing reports for legal action and giving evidence in court when necessary and participates in training, supervision and team meetings.
