Upon getting licensure, social workers are often employed in the health care industry. From caring for elderly clients to working with the terminally ill, this area of practice is said to increase as aging baby boomers enter new life states. The health care industryáhas beenáundergoing rapid change and it is pertinent for social workers who work in the health care arena to understand the industry in order to thrive. This book is a revision of a text for courses on social work and health care. It is a comprehensive look at the industry from its historical development to its current status. It pays particular attention to four domains of health care and the role that social workers can play in these roles in the present day and in the future. The book will be thoroughly updated to include developments and shifts in the industry as well as the new EPAS focus of evidence based practice and critical thinking. A new area of focus will be the recent developments in healthcare reform and new policies affecting HIPPA, Medicare, Medicaid and more. The author will also develop more pedagogical features within each chapter and add tables and charts representing statistics as applicable. Each chapter will contain relevant case studies and the author is adding more content on health disparities, minority culture and international health.
