NASW Executive Director

NASW is committed to creating a greater awareness of the range of settings and areas of practice available within the field of gerontological social work. NASW's Aging Section provides valuable practice and policy information for faculty and students who are interested in working with older adults.

On the NASW Web site, you can find information about social workers working in the field of aging, please visit http://www.socialworkers.org/practice/aging/default.asp for more details. Also, NASW has recently revised Standards for Social Work Services in Long-Term Care Facilities and our Board of Directors has released Standards for Social Work Practice in Palliative and End of Life Care. All of the standards can be found at http://www.socialworkers.org/practice/default.asp. Finally, NASW offers eight Specialty Practice Sections. One of these is an Aging Section.
