Students can extend their knowledge of support and resources for families around organ transplants; psychosocial aspects of illness and health for individuals and families; support skills for individuals and families around grief and loss; and end-of-life decision making. Students enhance their knowledge of ethical group and individual interventions for these vulnerable populations. (Prerequisite(s): SOCW 8204 - Medical Social Work I.)
