About the Course:
Suicide Prevention Is Every Social Worker’s Business
Social workers don’t need to specialize in suicide prevention to screen clients for risk and warning signals, but they must be prepared. Social work education must step up to better train students for this aspect of practice.
Using Health Information Technology in Transitions of Care
Communication in transitioning patients from one care setting to another is invaluable, and health information technology is making that more efficient and effective.
Meaningful Relationships in Long Term Care — Helping Residents Make Their House a Home
A qualitative study of long term care residents shows cultivating meaningful relationships between residents and between staff and residents may be one of the most important ways to help them feel at home in long term care.
