(in English): The bachelor thesis is focused on the role of social worker in palliative care team in hospital setting. In the theoretical part, there is an explanation of the term palliative care and the place of this care and the role of social work within it.

Using thematic analysis we identified six topics which cover job description of these social workers. It consists of: empathetic attitude, assessment of situation, providing support, counselling, sharing information, covering psychosocial needs. This description was compared with model of competencies for palliative care social worker created by EAPC. It was found that activities done by Czech social workers are mostly the same as model of competencies from EAPC, however, Czech social workers do not evaluate provided care and do not participate in research and education. Against their foreign colleagues they provide more practical help like arranging the application to hospice or home care assistance.
