Biopsychosocial assessment | SOCW 6205 – Medical Social Work II | Walden University

  

Throughout the MSW curriculum, you have learned how to conduct biopsychosocial assessments. In this Week’s Assignment, you apply what you learned to a medical context where you share assessment and intervention with an interdisciplinary team. As the medical social worker charged with a client’s care, you consider the nature and progression of their illness and integrate the macro and micro issues that influence their experience. You also monitor the nature and progression of their illness or disability to ensure they have the supports and resources needed. By examining medical social work roles, responsibilities, scope of practice and practice skills, and ethics, you understand how the medical social work profession contributes to the health care system and patient care.

To Prepare: Choose one of the following biopsychosocial assessment tools to analyze for this assignment (Pick one of the three tools attached). Select the tool you might be most likely to use in your preferred healthcare work setting. (FYI: the case study is just any example of a case, but the assessment tool is being measured in the assignment).

In a 3-4 page paper:

· Explain whether or not the assessment is strengths-based. 

· Identify other professionals in healthcare who may have input into the assessment.

· Identify any sections of the assessment tool that are best completed by other healthcare professionals and explain why.

· Consider the implications of various professionals disagreeing over the assessment content and discuss how would you mitigate those challenges.

· Explain how psychosocial issues (including policy and legal issues) might impact the patient’s medical care and/or health outcomes and the role of the social worker in assessing and addressing those issues on an interdisciplinary healthcare team.
