For Health Care Social Workers

In celebration of social work week, the Health Practice Enhancement Committee is pleased to sponsor  Social Work Skills and Knowledge in Health Care, a leaflet designed to assist with the promotion of social work within multidisciplinary settings. This simple and succinct list of social work knowledge areas and skills is helpful for the purposes of describing our skills to colleagues in other professions and as a source to draw from for government relations work and speaking to issues of funding  and staffing priorities.   BCASW members are invited to Contact BCASW to order copies at cost.
