Abstract: When referring to Health Social Work (HSSW) we easily associate it with Health Institutions. In the performance in organizations transversal to the health system, as is the case of Patients' Associations, the work is a bit confusing. In the Associations of people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and relatives in Spain, the figure of Social Work has been present since its beginnings in 1987, according to the Spanish Federation of CF Associations. Currently, 12 of the 15 entities that make up the Federation, have one or more professionals among their staff. Being a key piece and reference for the development and implementation of the various programs and services they comprise. This Master's Thesis aims to show, through the design of a descriptive experimental research, how the functions performed in the CF Associations by the TSS, are framed within the key actions of the TSS of the public, private and subsidized health services and centers. Reflecting that the professional practice carried out in CF Associations is TSS.
