This new text illuminates the essential information about health and social work critical to understanding today's complex health care systems and policies. Chapters highlight current practice, policy, and research in different settings and with special populations. Readers learn how to advocate for the individuals, families, and communities they serve to help improve health and well-being for all. All those interested in micro, mezzo, and macro practices in a healthcare setting will appreciate this rich resource.

Highlights include:

Each chapter speaks to the interconnections between practice, policy, and research and how they are integrated to inform social work health care.
Unique chapters dedicated to special populations such as children and families, older adults, immigrants, persons with HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ individuals, veterans, and people with disabilities provide a deeper understanding of the health care issues specific to these groups.
Thorough coverage of the role of social workers in a variety of settings such as substance abuse, correctional systems, public health, integrated behavioral health care, and more.
An in-depth discussion of the values and ethical issues in a health care environment.
An intersectionality lens used throughout promotes a greater understanding of a client's multiple status of race, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, education level, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identification.
Detailed case examples developed by professionals in the field in Parts II and III accompanied by discussion questions further enhance an understanding of the issues.
Highlights how social workers advocate for social justice to promote good health and well-being for all.
On-line instructor's resources including Power Points, chapter outlines, how chapter content is tied to the 2015 CSWE Educational Policy Accreditation Standards (EPAS), answers to discussion questions, including approaches that instructors can use with cases and research, as well as a sample syllabus with suggested options for instructors to modify for different courses.

Intended as a core text for MSW and advanced BSW courses on health and social work, social work and health care, health and wellness, social work practice in health care, or integrative behavioral health taught in social work, public health, or gerontology, this book is also of value in social work practice courses that focus on health care or special populations. Social workers practicing in the health care field will also appreciate this book.
