Ethical practice is a hallmark of excellent palliative care that occurs throughout the illness trajectory and at the end of life.

Call for Papers - Special Issue of Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions - Substance Use and Violence
Deadline: September 15, 2015
Violence and substance abuse are widespread and interrelated problems that affect the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. Researchers from social work and other disciplines have documented multiple connections between violence and substance use. Much of the early research focused on violence perpetration and alcohol. More recently scholars examine this relationship for a greater variety of substances (e.g. cocaine, and marijuana), wider forms of violence perpetration and victimization (e.g. intimate partner violence/dating violence, sexual assault, community violence, bullying, human trafficking), and populations (e.g. adolescents, adults, community-based samples, clinical samples). Despite growing attention to intersections among these issues, much remains to be learned.
