World Social Work Day: supporting community and environmental sustainability
Open access Research and Policy Update for World Social Work Day 2017
To celebrate the World Social Work Day theme of ‘supporting community and environmental sustainability’, we have made our recent Research and Policy Update on working preventatively open access to view until 30 April 2017.
This edition of the Research and Policy Update looks at the latest research and evidence on preventing needs emerging, reducing the impact of need, and maintaining quality of life for as long as possible – with research summaries exploring:
- Costs and economic consequences of a help-at-home scheme for older people in England (2016).
- An evaluation of shared reading groups for adults living with dementia: preliminary findings (2016).
- Promoting exercise as part of a physiotherapy-led falls pathway service for adults with intellectual disabilities: a service evaluation (2015).
- Knowing me, knowing you: Inter-professional working between general practice and social care (2015).
