New to the Edition
The initial chapter on social work roles now includes results from the authors' national survey of randomly selected NASW members. These results look closely at the actual frequency of a range of activities related to medication management, as well as the respondents' perceptions of appropriateness and competence.
The authors have expanded the use of figures in discussing neurotransmission.
Extended coverage of material on interprofessional relationships and physician referral addresses scholarly discussion of the topics, as well as specific "how to" considerations. Relevant data from the national survey also informs this discussion.
The main section on classes and types of medication reflects new discoveries of medications and new uses of medications across diagnostic categories.
The material on special populations reflects new research and new considerations about children and adolescents in particular.
New discussion of the ethical dilemmas of practicing social workers, based on the authors' survey results, has been integrated into the text.
All content on medication education, risk and protective factors in adherence, and medication monitoring have been updated.
