Professional Development Workshop: Emergent Practice Models and the Affordable Care Act and Breakfast to Honor Field Supervisors
2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for Social Workers at no cost.
Questions: contact Sandra Nunley at firstname.lastname@example.org
With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, it is apparent that social workers will play a larger role in clinical care coordination, health education, wellness support and behavioral health interventions. In doing this work, social workers will draw upon models that emphasize the integration of physical and mental health. They will also utilize culturally-sensitive, client-centered, evidence-based intervention approaches and work directly with community organizations. They will collaborate with doctors, nurses and professionals from other disciplines. Presenters at this workshop will speak about the implications of healthcare reform for social work and the practice skills required for successful delivery of service.
