Outpatient Social Work Services

Our outpatient pediatric social worker, an integral member of the pediatric health care team, is dedicated to providing you, your child, and your family with support throughout your child’s health care experience. This includes attention to your child’s comfort and coping during medical visits, as well as planning together for the future.

  • Helping with emotional and family concerns related to the impact of your child’s orthopedic condition or rheumatologic illness
  • Identifying resources, along with the health care team,  to understand your child’s diagnosis and  treatment options
  • Assisting with school-related issues
  • Addressing child safety concerns
  • Accessing community services,  such as counseling, government programs, homecare and transportation services
