Dear Healthcare Professional,
Social work interventions in long term care and aging have been researched and shown to increase quality of life and enhance the effective use of health care services.
A collaborative approach to outpatient care can be efficient and cost-effective in helping patients make positive change in managing their chronic illness while also easing demands on the health professional’s time.
Assessment of psychosocial functioning allows customized interventions for patients and caregivers along a wide spectrum.
Short term counseling can shed light on financial, relational, emotional and other barries to wellness.
Care management can offer support and practical strategies to help overwhelmed patients and caregivers maximize their resources and those in their communities.
Patients who are well-informed about their illness and are apprised of options are more likely to be treatment compliant and to do better.
I look forward to helping your patients and working collaboratively with you.
