Social Work SIG

Social Work Special Interest Group


The Social Work SIG formed in order to further integrate social work into the multidisciplinary HCT team and provide an avenue for collaboration and the advancement of psychosocial health research. Our hope is to create an environment that will assist transplant/cell therapy social workers to grow their professional skills within our social work organization and our interdisciplinary collaborations within ASTCT to further the clinical use and position of social work with this very unique patient population.

Why You Should Join

The ASTCT Social Work SIG is meant to be a complement to our social work professional organizations (AOSW and APOSW). While our social work professional organizations offer our members individual skill building and networking among our social work colleagues, we feel strongly that it is an advantage to both social work and our interdisciplinary transplant teams to have social work involved with ASTCT. Our professional colleagues utilize the ASTCT and the TCT meetings to be the leading organization promoting research, education and clinical practice in the field of blood and marrow transplantation and related cellular therapy. We are working closely on initiatives that it would encourage involvement by social workers in both their social work professional organization and in ASTCT
