  • Exploring the "Social" of Social Work in Palliative Care: Working with
           Diversity
    • Abstract: Social work is one of a number of caring professions that contribute to the practice of palliative care that is now delivered in hospitals, hospices, and in the community. Most palliative care social work is undertaken as part of a medical speciality that draws on the multidisciplinary professional team that has as its aim the meeting of practical, psychological, physical, and spiritual needs of dying people and their families. This article reports case study research that explored the practice of one social worker with experience of working as part of a hospital and hospice palliative care team, both located in a diverse inner city environment. In-depth semi-structured interviewing explored the complexity of palliative care social work in this setting. Findings reveal the importance of building positive relationships with clients and the highly labor-intensive nature of this work, particularly in relation to supporting the culturally diverse needs of some dying and bereaved people. The requirement for person-centered interventions is highlighted, so as to avoid stereotypes and misunderstandings in pursuit of providing appropriate and "respectful care."

  • The Big Society in a Time of Crisis—The Impact on Public Health
    • Abstract: At the time of writing, the UK is in a "double-dip" recession with the economy flatlining. The Government is set for a new round of benefit cuts. The cuts introduced to the public sector when the coalition government came to power in May 2010 are already beginning to bite. This "age of austerity" and general gloom was lifted briefly in summer 2012 by the undoubted success of the London Olympics and Paralympics; however, the sense of crisis within the nation runs deep. This article explores the extent to which the concept of the "Big Society" can alleviate the impact of the crisis on public health. The authors explore the thinking behind the concept of "Big Society" tracing related ideas back to Victorian times. We further examine this issue, citing evidence about the impact of cuts on the National Health Service's ambulance service and how social capital offers a way forward. While acknowledging that there is merit in the Big Society's call for voluntary sector support, beyond the support provided by the State, the authors argue that the reality of the Big Society is nonetheless flawed. If anything, the call should be for a "Little Society" of voluntarism at a local level, where meaningful voluntary action can help ameliorate the inevitable forecast decline in state support.

  • Turning a Tragedy into a Tribute: A Literature Review of Creating Meaning
           After Loss of a Loved One
    • Abstract: The issue of the death of a loved one is unavoidable and must be experienced by all. We must endure it and its effects regardless of who we are or what we have. Death creates a strong emotional impact, and we are powerless to its force and influence. However, it is an experience that can and has been transcended. People can flourish and thrive after the death of a loved one (Egnew, 2005). Creating meaning is defined as people remembering their deceased loved one in ways that add value to their life and the memory of their deceased loved one. This can be done through artistic expressions and various other methods. By inspiring meaning, the survivor perpetuates the value and importance of the loved one's life by living out that meaning. Living out meaning involves the courage to overcome the pain of loss while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good. One thus transcends the loss and develops a permanent link between oneself and one's deceased loved one. One understands that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond one's understanding, and that there is always tomorrow.

  • Essential Engagement: NICU Nurses' Relationships within End-of-Life Care
    • Abstract: Lindsay, Cross, and Ives-Baine (2012) explored the experiences of neonatal intensive care (NICU) nurses with infants at end-of-life and their families. In keeping with our research agreement, the findings were presented to the rest of the NICU staff at two sets of education days. The nurses affirmed the research pattern of essential engagement through telling stories of grief and professional growth. We conceptualized how nurses construct relationships through conscious engagement, dialogue, and reflection and reframing. Connecting the original findings with the nurses' responses from the education days has led to innovative actions within this NICU. This article also examines the development of an End-of-life Resource Team and Voicing Space as well as addressing ideas for further research.

  • End-of-Life and Palliative Care Curricula in U.S. Social Work Graduate
           Programs
    • Abstract: Social workers have a high probability of relating to clients with terminal illnesses and their families. Yet, end-of-life education in U.S. graduate programs of social work has been somewhat limited. A recent guideline by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) sets standards for social work practice in palliative and end-of-life care. This article presents the results of a 2012 survey of U.S. social work graduate programs to determine curricula offerings in end-of-life and palliative care. Results suggest that the majority of graduate social work programs are addressing the NASW guidelines; however, less than half of students participate in the offering(s).

  • Depression and Behavioral Disorders in Chronic Viral Hepatitis
    • Abstract: This study assesses behavioral disorders and depression in 50 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (32 patients with HBV and 18 patients with HCV). A psychodiagnostic protocol composed of the IBQ and the BDI was administered to the entire sample in two stages—at the time of recruitment (T1) and after 8 months, when patients were receiving pharmacological treatment (T2). The results showed a predominance of behavioral disorders and depression in patients with HCV compared to HBV patients, although all patients with chronic viral hepatitis, despite reduction in viral load, displayed reduced quality of working life and relationships.

  • Extraneare: Pain, Loneliness, and the Incarcerated Female Body
    • Abstract: The aim of this article is to understand the affect of estrangement expressed as pain and loneliness within spaces of incarceration. The article will tease out the dissonances and the tensions of both the loneliness of pain and pain as loneliness expressed in the narratives of older women lifers in prison and former political prisoners. Specifically, pain will be looked at as heartache, not feeling physical pain, and one's own pain and shame at being strip-searched being amplified through sensing the pain of another or the silencing of the pain event. We demonstrate through the voices of the women that theirs are real bodies, fleshy, sensate, that experience a cycle of pain as both affective and physical which results in punishment. This cycle results in pain's performative production of the punished through its peculiar individualizations of the body. This also means that pain is amplified through fear of its own possibility of visitation on and in the individual body from which communal attachments are erased so that succour cannot be sought but the pain of the other increases pain as fear. It is this cycle of psychic and physical pain which leads to estrangement experienced paradoxically both as part of the punishment regime of incarceration and as a coping strategy, the only possible location for agency. Agency here emerges as women make the prison environment and categories "stripped searched" or "lifer" stranger to the self, "the real me" or the wounded body stranger, removed from the self which does not feel during the pain event and in its afterlife. These women's bodies are not simply given but also interpreted, mediated, and constituted in social and cultural meanings of incarceration, punishment, and freedom. This allows us to show how thinking through pain as both repressive and productive of identities means that the space of bodily estrangement can be a location of agency as the body does not cease to be both a generator and receptor of meanings in total institutions.

  • The Lived Experience of a Critical Illness—A Social Worker's
           Reflection
    • Abstract: Critical illness, admission to an intensive care unit, and prolonged hospitalization all impact on the psychosocial functioning of an individual. This article highlights my own experience of a critical illness in an autoethnographic study thereby attempting to add knowledge to the scarcity of research from the patient's point of view. By writing this article, I was able to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct my emotions, behavior, and the sequence of events in order to understand the impact of my critical illness. With this article I hope to invite healthcare professionals into my world of critical illness for better understanding of the patient's experience.

  • Spousal Bereavement Following Cancer Death
    • Abstract: Loss due to cancer could predispose surviving spouses or partners to a variety of negative outcomes. Although a terminal prognosis may provide opportunities to prepare for the loss, existing evidence is inconclusive as to whether death expectedness buffers potentially negative bereavement outcomes. Using data from the Living After Loss study, we examined longitudinally outcomes of bereaved individuals whose spouses/partners died from cancer (n = 112) versus other causes (n = 213) while accounting for death expectedness. While most of the cancer deaths were expected, more than half of the non-cancer deaths were not. The lowest levels of depression, grief, and loneliness over time were among those whose spouses/partners died expectedly from causes other than cancer. Cancer-bereavement was as equally distressing as any unexpected death. Future efforts should focus on the mechanisms underlying these outcomes and develop effective and early interventions to those in greatest need.
