Summary

The personal computer is now a commonplace resource in health care and social work, particularly as a result of the development of educational, therapeutic, and patient-related information systems. This is a practical handbook for those working in the health and social services who wish to develop their knowledge of computer applications in their professional lives to help them turn their clinical or professional expertise into a computer resource. The approach throughout the book is to consider the human problem and then look at the practical application with the computer.
