Social work in end-of-life care: A review of the most highly cited papers (pp. 345-352) $45.00
Authors:  Blair Henry, Michael Lam, Ronald Chow, Leonard Chiu, Selina Chow, Edward Chow, Henry Lam, Natalie Pulenzas, and Breanne Lechner
Background: This study provides a bibliography on the topic of social work in end-of-life (EOL) care, based on the 50 most highly cited papers in this field as presented in the Scopus database. Method: A search was conducted in Scopus to determine the most frequently cited papers in the area of social work in EOL care. To limit the results to references highly relevant to social work, the phrases ‘social work’ and ‘social worker’ were searched as both subject and title keywords. The results were then combined with the subject keywords ‘end of life’, ‘palliative care’, ‘hospice care’, and ‘terminal care’. Results: A total of 193 references dating between 1987 and 2011 were found on social work in EOL care. Discussion: Literature on this topic is limited. A majority (68%) of the top 50 cited articles were published in a 6 year period between 2000 and 2006. A total of 14 journals were involved, with the Journal of Social Work in end-of-life and Palliative Care publishing the most articles on the list. The top articles were further reviewed with 15 key topics identified.
