This updated MDS 3.0 friendly book is the follow-up to the first Social Work Care Plan Training Manual, which quickly became a fixture in social work offices across the country. This comprehensive sequel contains 100 pages of brand new care plans, each written originally for actual nursing home residents. The authors are licensed clinical social workers with a combined 36 years experience writing nursing home care plans. This book discusses a wider variety of resident problem areas than the first book, and examines the many changes that social workers now confront in facilities every day. In addition, the care plans have been stream-lined and categorized for easy, quick reference. Also included are in-depth chapters about many areas not covered in the first manual, such as JCAHO, Quality Indicators, PPS, specialized services for the mentally ill, substance abuse, suicide, elopement, and more. A large section of lists for individualized care plan approaches for 14 different problem areas is also provided. This all new book is the follow up to the first Social Work Care Plan Training Manual.
