today i met a pt with my sup.. it was about end of life issues.

the doctor told the family “my contribution is to tell you that there is a team of people ready to help you”. wow. i was really touched by this statement.

there is a sense of compassion,  concern for the family, and teamwork.

sometimes (ok, quite often) my friends say i am difficult to please. but i think it doesnt take a lot to make me happy. i am so awed by that statement, really. it reminded me that that is precisely why i am a social worker. and i guess, sometimes beyond a ‘professional’ social worker, all pts and their family need to know is that my social worker will help me when i need help.
