Social work law is at the foundation of all social work practice, from shaping professional boundaries to determining the level of intervention. Every case is complex and unique and therefore requires different legal treatment; this means it is absolutely vital that social workers not only understand the law, but are able to critically analyse the legal framework and apply it to their practice. This book provides students and practitioners with an essential guide to adult social care law. It lays out the key case law, core legislation and the HSPCC standards as they apply to different areas of adult social care. This includes issues of capacity, making an assessment, supporting carers and working with vulnerable adults. Designed to support learning needs, the book is packed with engaging case studies and reflective exercises, as well as a legal toolbox to help simplify the legal jargon. Whether you are a student or practitioner, this is a practical, accessible guide to competent and lawful practice in adult social care.

The Care Act 2014 is arguably the most significant piece of legislation in the UK since the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 in relation to adults who have social care needs. It is particularly important for social workers as it sets out the legislative context for the core social work processes that apply to all adults. The Social Worker's Guide to the Care Act 2014 considers the Act and the statutory guidance from the perspective of what is most important and relevant for social workers. It covers the key stages of what is known as the 'customer journey'-first contact, assessment of needs, prevention, consideration of eligibility, charging and financial assessment, care and support planning, and review. In addition, other chapters look at significant issues that cut across several stages of the customer journey, such as safeguarding and working with NHS colleagues. To provide a broader context for the Care Act, consideration is made for how the Act consolidates and modernises social care law and codifies good practice. There is also an examination of how the new legislation is reshaping the language of social care. This book provides qualifying social workers with a working knowledge of what the Care Act and the accompanying statutory guidance says about their professional role and how professional judgments are to be made, and helps them to understand the good practice that is codified in the statutory guidance.

The Integration of Health and Social Care in the UK

Closer integration of health and social care with the aim of ending the historic divide between NHS and social services has been the goal of successive governments for decades. The rationale for greater integration has been widely accepted in terms of service improvement, better use of resources and meeting the needs arising from future demographic change. Various methods of integration have been tried and tested over the years, ranging from joint working to full structural integration. The debate about integration continues to dominate government papers and reports - and in 2010 the coalition government set out its intention to break down the barriers between health and social care funding to encourage preventative action. This much needed new text provides a systematic assessment of recent policy developments across the UK and introduces the different models of integration which currently operate - from structural integration in Northern Ireland to health and care partnerships in Scotland. The book goes on to examine the achievements of integrated working, showing how it can lead to improvements in the quality of services and access to services, as well as create cost efficiencies. In addition, the authors also consider barriers to integration and draw comparisons with experiences in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe to identify lessons for practice in the UK. Supported throughout by case studies and a wealth of illustrative material - including charts and diagrams - this will be key reading for anyone who seeks to understand the challenges and issues involved in the delivery of health and social care in the UK.



The McDonaldization of Social Work

The McDonaldization of Social Work Author Donna Dustin

Based upon George Ritzer's McDonaldization of Society thesis and incorporating aspects of social theory, this book examines the introduction of care management to social work practice. Donna Dustin analyzes care management as an example of the managerial application of efficiency, calculability, predictability and control to social work practice. These principles, put to good use in organizations that produce tangible outputs at a profit, are being increasingly applied in non-profit public sector organizations where the outcomes require intangibles such as professional relationships. The author examines whether the McDonaldization process heightens dilemmas such as cost versus rights for professionals working in the social services. Using social theory to frame her research with care managers and their managers in the UK, the author examines the day-to-day implications of care management for social work practice and questions whether the construction of service users as customers contributes to empowering practice. The book's in-depth analysis of the policy background, implementation and practice of care management will resonate with social workers in other national contexts, such as the US, where the care management model has been introduced.

Large scale changes in work and education are a key feature of contemporary global transformations, with a pervasive politics that affects people’s experiences of workplaces and learning spaces. This thought-provoking book uses empirical research to question prevailing debates surrounding compliance at work, education and lifelong learning, and emphasises the importance of debate and dissent within the current terms and conditions of work. Examining a number of types of work, including teaching, nursing and social work, through a transnational research space, the contributors investigate how disturbances in work both constrain and enable collective identities in practical politics. Structured around three main themes, the book covers: Disturbed work: with cases of occupational reform in nursing and vocational teaching in Finland and re-regulating work in Australia Disturbing work: examining contested occupational knowledge in German school to work transitions, paraprofessional healthwork in the UK, social work in Finland, and mobilising professional expertise in US Community College faculty and Australian adult literacy Transforming politics: negotiating an ageing workforce in Germany, young adults moving through identities and careers, building a politics of ‘we’ through a global book project An enlightening collection of international contributions, this book will appeal to all postgraduate students, researchers and policy makers, in education, work, and lifelong learning.

As social work adapts to the challenge of a mixed economy of welfare, this book offers a reassertion of the vital contribution of social work in the welfare structures of the 1990s.

New strategies for organisation and training are advanced to equip social workers for a more entrepreneurial role.
