Overview

Social work practice in health care requires that practitioners be prepared to meet the interdisciplinary and managed care demands for best practices in efficacious, time-limited, and culturally competent interventions, with populations across the lifespan. This text is designed to meet that demand for evidence-based practice.

The result of extensive systematic reviews, Evidence-based Interventions for Social Work in Health Care provides substantive in-depth knowledge of empirically based interventions specifically for major and emerging medical diseases and health conditions particularly affecting diverse, at-risk and marginalized populations. It outlines best practices for the psychosocial problems associated with the emerging chronic and major health conditions of the twenty-first century, such as paediatric asthma, Type I and Type II diabetes, obesity, paediatric cancer, and adult hypertension. The interventions discussed are detailed in terms of for whom, by whom, when, under what circumstances, for what duration, and for what level client system the intervention has proven most effective.

This invaluable text is suitable for students and will be a useful reference for practitioners specialising in social work in health settings.
