Oncology Social Work Certification
The mission of the Board of Oncology Social Work Certification is to promote excellence in psychosocial care for oncology patients, families, caregivers, and their community through the process of Oncology Social Work Certification. Oncology Social Work Certification is important for patients, their families, and oncology staff because it reflects a knowledge base, skill set, and ethical standards specific to psychosocial oncology. It represents an advanced level of competence, commitment, and experience in the field of Oncology Social Work.
Certification also demonstrates to accrediting organizations i.e. Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, American College of Surgeons, Commission on Cancer, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, to employers, and the community that Oncology Social Workers comply with standards and ethics that ensure delivery of quality services to all.
Although two separate organizations, both the BOSWC and AOSW seek to promote excellence and proficiency in oncology social work. We encourage all oncology social work professionals to seek certification through this board.
