Overview

Social Work in Health Care: Its Past and Future gives social workers up-to-date, comprehensive information about the roles they can play and the skills they need in all aspects of health care. The book focuses on health care's four major domains: acute care, ambulatory care, illness prevention and health promotion, and long-term care. The author reviews the past and present of each of these fields, projects their major needs in the future, and suggests how social work can step in and help meet those needs. He presents practice theories, principles, approaches, models, and techniques appropriate for the many social work roles and responsibilities. The book concludes by describing general strategies social workers can use to succeed and thrive in health care settings.
