An individual’s social history can
greatly influence their care delivery and treatment outcomes—providing context
for their health-related behaviors. Social history includes factors such as
life stressors (unemployment, legal issues, family concerns), living situation
and education level. Incorporating social history questions into the patient
assessment and medical history evaluation provides an efficient mechanism for gathering
information to facilitate and improve care.
Join us for this free webinar as we explore how social history can be routinely assessed and used to foster collaboration with social work colleagues and others within the health care team.
- Describe social determinants of health and how they can influence patient outcomes.
- Identify methods to incorporate social history questions effectively into medical and dental assessment.
- Identify the role social workers can play within a health care team.
