Background There has always been a strong commitment at St Christopher’s and throughout palliative care social work to support the education and development of the next generation of social workers. However, the change in course requirements (stipulating final year social work placements are now required to be undertaken in statutory services) has complicated the option to support a social work student on placement in palliative care. In response to this change, St Christopher’s created a role within its Social Work Team for a Newly Qualified Social Worker (NQSW) to undertake their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) within the hospice.
