Chapters cover core areas of practice according to Care Act and adult safeguarding principles, identify the fundamental skills and knowledge practitioners working in this area should be able to utilise and introduce the emerging challenging issues in the workplace. As well as being invaluable to practitioners working directly in this field, this is also ideally suited to be a text for any social work course or programme on adult safeguarding practice.

As more and more people and organisations are affected by the austerity agenda and cuts to public services, there is increased risk that the person-centred nature of safeguarding practice will be consumed by procedure and managerialism. With a unique focus on safeguarding both adults and children, this important text considers the professional responsibilities not just of social workers, but of practitioners across a range of Health, Police, Education and voluntary services who will often be involved in the process of protecting the more vulnerable members of society. Including in-depth analysis of the relevant research literature, as well as official evidence from Serious Case Reviews, the book will broaden readers' knowledge and understanding of the specialist skills required to practice safeguarding effectively, as well as of the need for agencies and professionals to communicate and work collaboratively in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. Using explicit learning objectives and reflective questions to encourage readers to think critically about their own assumptions in practice, the book provides coverage of topics such as: • The significance of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 in safeguarding adults • The complexities of safeguarding children in cases of parental substance misuse • The impact of social media and digitisation on safeguarding practice • The tensions involved in safeguarding practice within different cultures • The challenges of interprofessional safeguarding in relation to domestic abuse Written by a team of expert authors, this impressive volume is a comprehensive sourcebook for students and practitioners alike.

The Care Act 2014 is arguably the most significant piece of legislation in relation to adults who have social care needs since the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990. It is particularly important for social workers as it sets out the legislative context for the core social work processes that apply to all adults. This book considers the act and the statutory guidance from the perspective of what is most important and relevant for social workers. It covers the key stages of what is known as the 'customer journey' - first contact, assessment of needs, prevention, consideration of eligibility, charging and financial assessment, care and support planning, and review. In addition, other chapters look at significant issues that cut across several stages of the customer journey, such as safeguarding and working with NHS colleagues.

When community and family support systems are weak or unavailable, and when internal resources fail, populations that struggle with chronic, persistent, acute, and/or unexpected problems become vulnerable to physical, cognitive, emotional, and social deterioration. Yet despite numerous risk factors, a large number of vulnerable people do live happy and productive lives. This best-selling handbook examines not only risk and vulnerability factors in disadvantaged populations but also resilience and protective strategies for managing and overcoming adversity. This third edition reflects new demographic data, research findings, and theoretical developments and accounts for changing economic and political realities, including immigration and health care policy reforms. Contributors have expanded their essays to include practice with individuals, families, and groups, and new chapters consider working with military members and their families, victims and survivors of terrorism and torture, bullied children, and young men of color.

Since the third edition of Practising Social Work Law published in 2010, new legislation – such as the Care Act 2014, the Equality Act 2010, and the Children and Families Act 2014 – has had a significant impact on the social work profession. Practitioners must not only know the law; they must also have a critical appreciation of its implications for human rights, civil liberties and social justice. They must exercise their powers and duties in ways underpinned by professional ethics, in a context of severe resource constraint and under constant public and political scrutiny. Now going into its fourth edition, Practising Social Work Law seeks to build social workers' confidence in legal interpretation and implementation. It focuses on promoting practitioners' knowledge and skills in recognising, locating and articulating legal issues, and using the law to inform practice standards and deliver positive outcomes for service users. This timely, fully revised new edition of this well-respected text combines up-to-date statute, case law and guidance with extended practice examples and questions for reflection, making it an invaluable resource for students, practitioners and educators alike.

Capturing Social and Behavioral Domains in Electronic Health Records

Substantial empirical evidence of the contribution of social and behavioral factors to functional status and the onset and progression of disease has accumulated over the past few decades. Electronic health records (EHRs) provide crucial information to providers treating individual patients, to health systems, including public health officials, about the health of populations, and to researchers about the determinants of health and the effectiveness of treatment. Inclusion of social and behavioral health domains in EHRs is vital to all three uses. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act place new importance on the widespread adoption and meaningful use of EHRs. "Meaningful use" in a health information technology context refers to the use of EHRs and related technology within a health care organization to achieve specified objectives. Achieving meaningful use also helps determine whether an organization can receive payments from the Medicare EHR Incentive Program or the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. Capturing Social and Behavioral Domains in Electronic Health Records is the first phase of a two-phase study to identify domains and measures that capture the social determinants of health to inform the development of recommendations for meaningful use of EHRs. This report identifies specific domains to be considered by the Office of the National Coordinator, specifies criteria that should be used in deciding which domains should be included, identifies core social and behavioral domains to be included in all EHRs, and identifies any domains that should be included for specific populations or settings defined by age, socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, disease, or other characteristics.
