    Posted by Jill Anderson on May 21, 2016 at 11:10 0 Comments

    Until now, most efforts to promote integrated care have focused on bridging the gaps between health and social care or between primary and secondary care. But the NHS five year forward view has highlighted a third dimension – bringing together physical and mental health.

    Global Partnership for Transformative Social Work

    Posted by Jill Anderson on May 5, 2016 at 17:46 2 Comments

The Global Partnership for Transformative Social Work believes that this requires new approaches to scholarship, education, practice and inquiry. 

    The GPTSW is a world-wide, non-affiliated community of social work educators, researchers,…
