Integrating Education on Addressing Health Disparities into the Graduate Social Work Curriculum
Mitchell, Jamie Ann
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v32 n5 p471-486 2012
The purpose of this article is to propose an elective social work course as a means of better preparing social workers entering practice in healthcare to meet the challenges of promoting health and reducing health disparities in minority and underserved communities. Course offerings specifically targeting health or medical social work training vary widely. The additional training provided at places of employment and through continuing education after the master's degree is often inadequate for competently addressing the issues clinicians face in practice.
