For Health Professionals

The social work profession is committed to the pursuit and maintenance of human well-being. Social work aims to maximise the development of human potential and the fulfilment of human needs, through an equal commitment to:

  • Working with and enabling people to achieve the best possible levels of personal and social well-being
  • Working to achieve social justice through social development and social change (Australian Association of Social Workers code of Ethics, 1999)

Social workers are qualified professionals who work in conjunction with the multidisciplinary team to develop care plans appropriate to patients’ individual needs.
