Oncology Social Workers help patients, families, and caregivers cope with cancer and its many challenges by providing concrete or supportive services.
At Astera Cancer Care, our Social Workers meet with patients and family members, run support and education groups, and work as part of oncology care teams. Social Workers are key to overcoming the barriers that patients experience in receiving the services necessary for their care.
