An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

Does a dedicated discharge coordinator improve the quality of hospital discharge? (1/382)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of the role of a discharge coordinator whose sole responsibility was to plan and coordinate the discharge of patients from medical wards. DESIGN: An intervention study in which the quality of discharge planning was assessed before and after the introduction of a discharge coordinator. Patients were interviewed on the ward before discharge and seven to 10 days after being discharged home. SETTING: The three medical wards at the Homerton Hospital in Hackney, East London. PATIENTS: 600 randomly sampled adult patients admitted to the medical wards of the study hospital, who were resident in the district (but not in institutions), were under the care of physicians (excluding psychiatry), and were discharged home from one of the medical wards. The sampling was conducted in three study phases, over 18 months. INTERVENTIONS: Phase I comprised base line data collection; in phase II data were collected after the introduction of the district discharge planning policy and a discharge form (checklist) for all patients; in phase III data were collected after the introduction of the discharge coordinator. MAIN MEASURES: The quality and out come of discharge planning. Readmission rates, duration of stay, appropriateness of days of care, patients' health and satisfaction, problems after discharge, and receipt of services. RESULTS: The discharge coordinator resulted in an improved discharge planning process, and there was a reduction in problems experienced by patients after discharge, and in perceived need for medical and healthcare services. There was no evidence that the discharge coordinator resulted in a more timely or effective provision of community services after discharge, or that the appropriateness or efficiency of bed use was improved. CONCLUSIONS: The introduction of a discharge coordinator improved the quality of discharge planning, but at additional cost.  (+info)

Improving access to disability benefits among homeless persons with mental illness: an agency-specific approach to services integration. (2/382)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a joint initiative of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to improve access to Social Security disability benefits among homeless veterans with mental illness. METHODS: Social Security personnel were colocated with VA clinical staff at 4 of the VA's Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) programs. Intake assessment data were merged with SSA administrative data to determine the proportion of veterans who filed applications and who received disability awards at the 4 SSA-VA Joint Outreach Initiative sites (n = 6709) and at 34 comparison HCHV sites (n = 27 722) during the 2 years before and after implementation of the program. RESULTS: During the 2 years after the initiative began, higher proportions of veterans applied for disability (18.9% vs 11.1%; P < .001) and were awarded benefits (11.4% vs 7.2%, P < .001) at SSA-VA Joint Initiative sites. CONCLUSION: A colocation approach to service system integration can improve access to disability entitlements among homeless persons with mental illness. Almost twice as many veterans were eligible for this entitlement as received it through a standard outreach program.  (+info)

Ethnic groups and our healthier nation: whither the information base? (3/382)

The Government has made the health of minority ethnic groups a central part of its programme to reduce social exclusion and inequalities in health provision. It has also given a commitment in its 'contract for health' to provide the information that is needed to address inequalities, stating that it will be able to draw on a range of data sources, including mortality statistics, cancer registrations, hospital episode data, and general practitioner data. In reality, only one of these is a potential source of comprehensive information on minority ethnic groups and the information base needed to support Government policies is essentially unavailable. Priorities for further action are identified.  (+info)

A survey of social services needs assessments for elderly mentally ill people in England and Wales. (4/382)

OBJECTIVE: to examine variations in the needs assessment policies and practices of social services departments in England and Wales in dealing with elderly people who have mental illness. DESIGN: postal questionnaire survey. SUBJECTS: a random sample of 61 of 119 social services departments in England and Wales. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: 99-item questionnaire. RESULTS: 40 responses were received (66%). There were substantial differences in the way referrals were screened before needs assessment and in the design of needs assessment procedures. Disagreements between health and social services were common and, although mechanisms existed to respond to urgent needs, almost one-third found such responses difficult to make. CONCLUSIONS: there are national variations in the way needs assessments are performed by social services, which may lead to inequalities in provision of care to individuals. The lack of a standardized approach impedes comparisons of need between areas which might aid in the distribution of resources at a national level.  (+info)

Randomised studies of income supplementation: a lost opportunity to assess health outcomes. (5/382)

BACKGROUND: Despite the wealth of evidence linking low income to ill health, there is little information from randomised studies on how much and how quickly these risks can be reversed by improvements in income. OBJECTIVE: To conduct a systematic review of randomised studies of income supplementation, with particular reference to health outcomes. DESIGN: Extensive searches of electronic databases and contact with previous authors. As well as searching for trials that were specifically designed to assess the effects of increased income, studies of winners and losers of lotteries were also sought: if winning is purely chance, such studies are, in effect, randomised trials of increased income. RESULTS: Ten relevant studies were identified, all conducted in North America, mostly in the late 1960s and 1970s. Five trials were designed to assess the effects of income supplementation on workforce participation and randomised a total of 10,000 families to 3-5 years of various combinations of minimum income guarantees and reduced tax rates. Two trials were designed to assess re-offending rates in recently released prisoners and randomised a total of 2400 people to 3-6 months of benefits. One trial was designed to assess housing allowances and randomised 3500 families to three years of income supplements. One trial assessed the health effects of 12 months of income supplementation in 54 people with severe mental illness. Finally, one study compared three groups of people who won different amounts of money in a state lottery. In all these studies the interventions resulted in increases in income of at least one fifth. However, no reliable analyses of health outcome data are available. CONCLUSIONS: Extensive opportunities to reliably assess the effects of increases in income on health outcomes have been missed. Such evidence might have increased the consideration of potential health effects during deliberations about policies that have major implications for income, such as taxation rates, benefit policies, and minimum wage levels. Randomised evidence could still be obtained with innovative new studies, such as trials of full benefit uptake or prospective studies of lottery winners in which different sized winnings are paid in monthly installments over many years.  (+info)

Do multi-sectoral development programmes affect health? A Bolivian case study. (6/382)

This cross-sectional study, carried out in Inquisivi, Bolivia, a rural area where Save the Children/US works, tests the hypothesis that participation in multisectoral development programmes results in improved health behaviours and better health outcomes. To test this hypothesis, four groups of households were compared: those participating in Save the Children's health-only programmes; those with access to health and micro-enterprise credit or health and literacy programmes; those participating in all three programmes (health, credit and literacy); and households from comparison communities (no access to any of Save the Children's programmes). Data come from a stratified sample of 499 households in the altiplano, foothills and valleys of the Andes. Findings reported here suggest that there is no clear association between participation in one or more of Save the Children's programmes and parents' actions to prevent and treat diarrhoea. Additionally, the point prevalence of diarrhoea was similar for all four groups. However, children of individuals participating in health, credit and literacy were significantly less likely than children from comparison communities to be malnourished or at risk of becoming malnourished, even after controlling for such potentially confounding factors as social class, source of drinking water, and the availability of health facilities.  (+info)

Medical and psychosocial services in drug abuse treatment: do stronger linkages promote client utilization? (7/382)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the extent to which linkage mechanisms (on-site delivery, external arrangements, case management, and transportation assistance) are associated with increased utilization of medical and psychosocial services in outpatient drug abuse treatment units. DATA SOURCES: Survey of administrative directors and clinical supervisors from a nationally representative sample of 597 outpatient drug abuse treatment units in 1995. STUDY DESIGN: We generated separate two-stage multivariate generalized linear models to evaluate the correlation of on-site service delivery, formal external arrangements (joint program/venture or contract), referral agreements, case management, and transportation with the percentage of clients reported to have utilized eight services: physical examinations, routine medical care, tuberculosis screening, HIV treatment, mental health care, employment counseling, housing assistance, and financial counseling services. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: On-site service delivery and transportation assistance were significantly associated with higher levels of client utilization of ancillary services. Referral agreements and formal external arrangements had no detectable relationship to most service utilization. On-site case management was related to increased clients' use of routine medical care, financial counseling, and housing assistance, but off-site case management was not correlated with utilization of most services. CONCLUSIONS: On-site service delivery appears to be the most reliable mechanism to link drug abuse treatment clients to ancillary services, while referral agreements and formal external mechanisms offer little detectable advantage over ad hoc referral. On-site case management might facilitate utilization of some services, but transportation seems a more important linkage mechanism overall. These findings imply that initiatives and policies to promote linkage of such clients to medical and psychosocial services should emphasize on-site service delivery, transportation and, for some services, on-site case management.  (+info)

Problems of an aging population in an era of technology. (8/382)

With the substantially growing number of elderly persons in Canada and the rest of the developed world, the need for adequate health and social care will increase. Health and social service providers must develop policies and programs allowing the elderly to lead rich and independent lives for as long as possible. As advances in age-related diseases are made, the elderly will potentially live longer and lead more active and fulfilling lives. Society, governments and those involved in the care of the elderly must meet the new challenges of this aging population in a humane and respectful way.  (+info)

The Association of Directors of Childrens Services has backed a proposal to include a specialism in working with children in the social work degree.. In its submission to the Social Work Task Force, the ADCS said courses were failing to prepare graduates who were immediately ready to enter the workforce. Child development. It identified a strong case for specialisation in the last year of the degree, including knowledge of child development, multi-agency working and a core set of skills for the childrens workforce.. But ADCS rejected Lord Lamings recommendation that childrens specialisation should occur in the second year of the degree, arguing that this would risk losing the coherence of social work as a profession across adults and childrens services. The idea of child specialisation in the social work degree was proposed by the government before Lamings report, and was included in the looked-after children white paper in 2007..

Community social work practice has made tremendous progress in reaching out to marginalized groups in urban and rural areas of the country, with social work scholars bringing many of the key concepts underlying community practice into fields like health promotion, fostering approaches ranging from involving beauticians in providing domestic violence services, to developing community gardens to address food security and educational initiatives. The role and importance of assessment in development of health and social services are well accepted in the field and represent the fundamental building blocks for the creation of any form of social intervention. Needs assessments are, without question, the most common form of assessment in these fields. They typically, however, result in a rather narrow view of a community that stresses disease risk profiles and lists of various social problem categories. Nevertheless, unlike needs assessments, asset assessments bring a range of factors and considerations to the

A historic and defining feature of social work is the professions focus on individual well-being in a social context and the well-being of society.[19] Social workers promote social justice and social change with and on behalf of clients.[20] A client can be an individual, family, group, organization, or community.[21] In the broadening scope of the modern social workers role, some practitioners have in recent years traveled to war-torn countries to provide psychosocial assistance to families and survivors.[22]. Newer areas of social work practice involve management science.[23] The growth of social work administration for transforming social policies into services and directing activities of an organization toward achievement of goals is a related field.[24] Helping clients with accessing benefits such as unemployment insurance and disability benefits, to assist individuals and families in building savings and acquiring assets to improve their financial security over the long-term, to ...

Only 23 (13%) of the 179 social work degree courses on offer throughout the UK still have spaces in clearing for A-level students who did not gain their first or second choice course, according to university admissions body UCAS.. Students across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive their A-level results today, but students in Scotland received them last week. Those wishing to study part-time will find the market for places even more competitive because there is only one course with part-time places available.. Ray Jones, professor of social work at Kingston University, said 13% was actually quite a high proportion of courses. However, he warned that this did not necessarily equate to a high proportion of places, because some of the courses may only have a few places left to offer. The proportion of places is likely to be significantly lower than the proportion of courses with places available, he said.. Jones added that social work students should make sure they sell themselves ...

Research direction comes out of a range of social work practice settings for Dr. Mona Schatz. Recent research activities arise from experiences that are personally challenging, often examining areas of practice that have had little or no attention in the professional publications. For example, for more than four years, Dr. Schatz has been learning about private pension accounts such as Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) and other similar retirement saving approaches. These financial accounts are new; the Boomers are the first generation to have financial vehicles such as these accounts to support them in their retirement years. Earlier, Dr. Schatz worked with social work colleagues and the City of Casper to examine the views and expectations of upcoming Boomers. Their views about retirement were illuminating and became the impetus of more work into financial realms. From the Casper Boomer Study, Dr. Schatz learned that Wyoming Boomers have limited financial resources for the future, most ...

For many people, social distancing, self-isolation and sometimes the need to quarantine have become common practice during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Neely Mahapatra, an associate professor, and Sukyung Yoon, an assistant professor, both in the UW Division of Social Work in the College of Health Sciences, have partnered with scholars from Canada, South Korea and Singapore to conduct a multi-country study aimed at assessing the impact of the pandemic on the socioeconomic health and well-being of individuals and families..

Gambling disorder is a significant public health concern. The recent and continued proliferation of land-based and interactive gambling opportunities has increased both accessibility and acceptability of gambling in the United States and abroad, resulting in greater and more varied participation. However, there is currently no designated federal funding for prevention, intervention, treatment, or research, and states are left to adopt varying standards on an ad hoc basis. Social workers receive little or no training in screening or treating problem gamblers, though research suggests that a significant proportion of those with mental health and other addictive disorders also gamble excessively. Raising awareness about the nature and scope of gambling disorder and its devastating implications for families and children is a first-step toward integrating gambling into prevention, assessment and treatment education in social work. This, in turn, will increase the chances of early identification and ...

Jordan Moore, Clinical Social Work/Therapist, Cambridge, MA 02138, I utilize a combination of strengths-based and client-centered psychotherapies to offer therapy that is personally tailored to each of my clients. I work to ensure that I meet each individual where they are, throughout our work together. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations including: psychodynamic (insight oriented), CBT (skills development) and DBT (mindfulness and skills). I believe that psychotherapy works most effectively when it addresses both current issues ( e.g. anxiety, relationship conflict), and the patterns that led to those issues.

Clinical social work is a derivative profession, drawing its knowledge and practice base from several theoretical schools. The four primary theoretical schools contributing to social-work philosophy are psychodynamic, humanist, cognitive-behavioral, and postmodern. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), although considered one of the third-wave behavioral approaches, draws from all four theoretical schools of clinical intervention. This entry gives an overview of ACT development, its essential features, empirical base, tenets and techniques, and relevance to the social-work profession.
Michael Chenkin, Clinical Social Work/Therapist, Somerville, NJ, 08876, (908) 444-0157, You have a love/hate relationship with alcohol--sometimes its enough to make you throw up. Feelings of guilt and shame about drinking hang heavy on your heart. After making countless promises to yourself and others to stop, your failure sits out there for everyone to see. Last night you had not a care in the world. This morning its hard to look at yourself in the mirror. Embarrassing episodes from the past haunt you. The hangovers are upsetting, but not as upsetting as the anxiety and depression you keep at bay with alcohol. You know your life would be better if you could change but you still havent found a way to do that.

The complexity and variability of psychosocial issues associated with cancer has created the demand for highly skilled practitioners who are trained to provide multilevel assessment and intervention throughtout the illness continuum. Oncology social workers are primary providers of psychosocial services in major oncology treatment centers and community health care settings throughout the world, both because of their knowledge about cancer and its psychosocial impact, and because of their practice versatility. Oncology social workers are trained in prevention, education, advocacy, research, and counseling. Their role has evolved to a central role in oncology care for several reasons. 1. Social work was established early in the 20th century as an essential component of the interdisciplinary health care team when Ida Canon became the first hospital social worker at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in 1919. The hospital social work role was initiated as it was recognized that the sources of illness

This chapter analyses the relationship between New Labours modernisation agenda, managerialism, and information and communications technology (ICT), and then looks at the relationship between ICT and social work in a contact centre in the United Kingdom. It focuses on the experience of working in a contact centre as a social worker, and the role and identity of social workers in this context. The chapter also provides insights into how the contact-centre environment positions social workers in relation to service users and how the use of ICT affects work processes. Moreover, it considers what motivates social workers to work in this environment, their perceptions of occupational stress in this setting, and the effect of this model on their social-work skills. Finally, the chapter examines research in the public and private sectors to see what it has to offer in relation to the social-services context, before reflecting on the implications for social work in the future.
Mental Disorders in the Social Environment. Social workers provide more mental health services than any other profession, yet recent biomedical trends in psychiatry appear to minimize the importance of their traditional concerns, which focus on the social environment that accompanies mental disorders and their treatment. In twenty-four chapters written by distinguished scholars this book not only calls attention to this emerging problem and challenges conventional mental health beliefs and practices, but also raises provocative questions: Has social work become too closely associated with psychiatry and too quick to adopt a medical approach? Has the focus on the therapeutic relationship negated social works commitment to social reform? Is the social worker marginalized by the emphasis in mental health on biochemistry and psychopharmacology?. This book calls on social workers and other health care professionals to be more skeptical about diagnosis, community treatment, evidence-based practice, ...

Title: Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior to Sexual Violence Prevention. Background and Purpose: Social workers encounter millions of women and girls affected by gender-based sexual violence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as holding particular promise for sexual violence prevention. According to the TPB, behavioral intent is comprised of the following facets: individuals behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, subjective norms, situational control beliefs which results in perceived behavioral control. Behavioral intent, in the TPB, is considered the indicator that a person is ready or has the intent to perform a given behavior. While TPB has been used to predict and explain other health-related behaviors (e.g. smoking), there is no empirical work applying the theory to sexual violence prevention. The aim of this study is to apply TPB for the purpose of program evaluation pertaining to a sexual violence program which ...
Our broad-based faculty team explores issues around children, youth and families by looking at the big picture - and big data - examining systems-level organizational policies and evaluating interventions at the client level. Our researchers are informing quality assurance for child welfare assessments conducted by the Department of Social Services. In addition, faculty are partnering with the state Department of Health and Human Services to build capacity for Medicaid services through person-centered innovations designed to improve entry, flow and traction in the Medicaid system and foster staff empathy and ability to drive future person-centered change projects. A faculty-driven pilot program is also improving outcomes for children with autism and their families. The study tested the impact of assigning parent navigators to families with a new autism diagnosis and found that families served by navigators accessed more resources, engaged in more self-care, referred their children to services ...
It is expected that patients admitted to the TCU will remain on the unit between five and 21 days. During their stay, care will be delivered by a comprehensive interdisciplinary team of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, occupational, physical, speech and recreational therapies, case management, and social work staff. In addition, staff members from ancillary areas of the hospital (for example, laboratory, radiology, food and nutrition, respiratory services, social services, chaplaincy services) also assist patients and their families as appropriate. The team will work under the direction of nursing/hospital administration and also Upstates Division Chief of Geriatrics, Sharon Brangman, MD..

The impact of parental substance misuse on child welfare is now being increasingly recognized. Drug and alcohol problems feature in a substantial proportion of families where there are child-care concerns and raise issues about engagement, confidentiality, assessment and inter-agency practice. This article explores some of the dilemmas faced by social welfare professionals who work with substance misusing parents. Based on a qualitative analysis of 40 semi-structured interviews with a wide range of practitioners from both adult focused and child and family settings, in both the voluntary and statutory sector, a variety of emerging themes will be discussed and linked to those from other studies. The problems of working with denial, the tensions created by different agency objectives and protocols and the way in which children can often fall through gaps in services will be highlighted, as will the way in which some professionals have sought to resolve the dilemmas they encounter. This will then ...
In the Fall of 2003, I started my undergraduate career at the University of Alaska Anchorage. For as long as I could remember I had wanted to be a veterinarian and had begun my freshman year as a Pre-vet major. Before long, I came to the startling realization that biology and chemistry were not a place of academic strength for me and my hopes of making it through four more years of these particular types of classes became daunting and perhaps unrealistic.. However, at this same time, I was enrolled in an Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare Policy course, and it had become a respite from the periodic table of elements and algebraic algorithms that were the cornerstone of my other classes that semester. Before enrolling in that course, I had no idea that a profession such as Social Work existed. I had spent most of my life interested in human behavior and how the environment can influence the way that people navigate their lives. I had also been enamored by social justice movements and ...
