Health Care Social Work presents compelling evidence that the health care endeavors of nations affect one another and evolve in response to global and transnational influences, and argues that the profession's place within this fluid dynamic creates unique opportunities-and obligations-to improve health services. The book aims to directly empower health care social workers around the world by providing valuable new information about the breadth and depth of the profession's health care contributions, legislative and policy influences upon practice, and implications for future practice and growth in different nations. Written by scholars and practitioners of health care social work from around the world, chapters encourage comparative analysis of distant health care social work practice as a means of supporting meaningful change on a local level and contributing to public health in a way that transcends boundaries and makes a difference globally. Readers will gain an opportunity to examine their assumptions about health care social work practice and reflect meaningfully upon less familiar techniques and approaches as a way of prompting problem-solving with new information and an expanded frame of reference.
