What was it about:
Speaker: Jane Maurer, MSW
1 CEU for RN, Social Worker and Case Manager
Jane Maurer, MSW has been a Medical Social Worker for Pathways Home Health in Hospice nearly the past three years. Jane received her B.A. in Psychology from Chico State University. During this time, she pursued numerous educational and vocational interests including working for three years in the Emergency Room at Enloe Medical Center, in Chico, CA. This work, in particular, was what eventually lead to her career path in Medical Social Work.
In 2010, Jane moved back to the Bay Area to complete the Masters in Social Work Program through San Jose State University. As part of the program, Jane was placed as an Intern as a Domestic Violence Counselor in the Restraining Order section of Santa Clara County Family Court. The second year of the program allowed Jane to refocus her career as a Medical Social Worker at Good Samaritan Hospital where she interned and was later hired. In 2013, Jane began working for Pathways Home Health & Hospice as a Hospice/Medical Social Worker. She currently works on three teams: Pediatrics, Sunnyvale North team as well as the Specialties Team where she also works with a unique unit for GIP (General In-Patient) level of care. As a Hospice Medical Social Worker, Jane works with patients and families during end of life. She identifies areas of psychosocial needs and strengths, provides anticipatory grief counseling as well as short-term bereavement support, provides education and guidance surrounding common end of life issues, facilitates resources coordination and assists with short-term and long-term planning needs. Working in hospice has been both challenging and profoundly rewarding for Jane. In her personal life, she strives to carry these lessons over to live a mindful, compassionate and meaningful life with her family, friends and hound-dog named Chloe.
