SOCW 6206 - Interdisciplinary Healthcare Practice


(5 cr.)
Interdisciplinary teams in healthcare are positioned to address not only the physical health of patients but also mental health and social service needs, drawing on the expertise of a social worker. This course is designed to provide students with an advanced understanding of the roles, competencies, and applied skills of social workers within such teams. Specifically, students explore how common goals in patient treatment can affirm the strengths of social work interventions. They build skills in assessment, intervention planning, communication, conflict management, and cultural competence while engaging with a variety of patient care issues as part of an interdisciplinary healthcare team. By the end of the course, students will have increased awareness of the complexities of healthcare settings as well as the nuanced and important role of social workers within teams.
