      Authors: Rine CM.
      Pages: 245 - 246
      Abstract: Not surprisingly, a great deal of literature continues to emerge that addresses the effects of COVID-19 on various populations of interest to social work policy and practice. A substantial number of such articles have been and will be published in Health & Social Work and other journals central to the discipline. This growing body of literature addresses a wide range of presenting concerns across varied settings with attention to particular disparities faced by vulnerable populations. While the focus of social work practice centers around the needs of those we serve, it is essential to consider how COVID-19 has affected—and may enduringly affect—us, both as individuals and professionals.

  • Boosting Health through the Tax Code: 2021 Tax Credit Reforms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Evans EJ.
      Pages: 247 - 249
      Abstract: The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) applauded Congress in March of this year when they successfully passed the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 American Rescue Plan to address public health and economic impacts of the pandemic. In their press release, national leadership pointed to tax credit provisions that are expected to drastically cut poverty and in turn “push against racial inequities” (NASW, 2021). The United States has a long history of using the tax code to advance social welfare; tax credit programs for earned income, child allowance, and child care expenses serve as economic security programs that have been associated with improved health outcomes (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2019; Simon, McInerney, & Goodell, 2018). In this column, I briefly revisit the history of this practice in the United States and describe the most recent expansions in terms designed to help social workers spread the word and help people access these benefits during this unprecedented health crisis.

  • Unmet Healthcare Need Due to Cost Concerns among U.S. Transgender and
           Gender-Expansive Adults: Results from a National Survey

      Authors: Kcomt L; Gorey KM, Barrett B, et al.
      Pages: 250 - 259
      Abstract:  This study examines past-year unmet healthcare need due to cost experienced by transgender and gender-expansive (TGE) adults in the United States in the context of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). It also aims to estimate the importance of having health insurance among TGE Americans (transgender men, transgender women, nonbinary/genderqueer people, and cross-dressers). Data were from the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey (N = 19,157 adults, aged 25 to 64 years). Multivariable logistic regression models were used to determine the adjusted odds ratios (AOR) and 95 percent confidence intervals (CI) of TGE individuals’ past-year unmet healthcare need due to cost. Although the majority (86.8 percent) reported seeing a doctor or healthcare provider in the past year, 32.1 percent reported past-year unmet healthcare need due to cost. One in six respondents (17.1 percent) was uninsured and almost one-third (29.8 percent) were at/near poverty. The prevalence of unmet healthcare need was greater among the uninsured (65.1 percent) than among the insured (25.2 percent). Compared with transgender women, nonbinary/genderqueer people (AOR = 1.31, 95% CI [1.18, 1.46]) and transgender men (AOR = 1.30, 95% CI [1.18, 1.42]) had greater odds of unmet healthcare need due to cost. Social workers can lobby to fully enact the ACA by underscoring affordability and availability as important dimensions of healthcare access for TGE populations.

  • Having to “Hold It”: Factors That Influence the Avoidance of Using
           Public Bathrooms among Transgender People

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lerner J.
      Pages: 260 - 267
      Abstract:  Transgender people often avoid going to the bathroom in public, at work, and at school because they are afraid of facing problems while using them. Utilizing the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey, the largest sample to date with transgender people, this study (N = 25,694) aimed to understand the factors associated with avoiding bathroom usage as well as how the avoidance may impact the health of transgender people. Logistic regression was used to examine factors associated with avoidance of bathrooms. More than six out of 10 transgender people avoided using public bathrooms. Being questioned about a person’s bathroom choice, gender identity, perception of gender identity, previous experiences of discrimination, suicidal ideation, and serious psychological distress were found to be associated with avoidance of public bathrooms due to fears of having problems when using them. Gender-neutral bathrooms that are safe and accessible for transgender people need to be more available and accessible in the United States.

  • Chronic Medical Conditions as Predictors of the Likelihood of PTSD among
           Black Adults: Preparing for the Aftermath of COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Archibald P; Thorpe R, Jr..
      Pages: 268 - 276
      Abstract:  The relationship between chronic medical conditions and PTSD within-race in Black adults is not well understood and there exists a dearth of empirical research investigating the gender differences. Cross-sectional data from the National Survey of American Life were used to examine the relationship between PTSD and obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and asthma (five of the most commonly identified COVID-19 underlying medical conditions) among Black adults in the United States. Results from modified Poisson regression analyses revealed that Black adults across all three groups (overall, male, and female samples) who reported two or more chronic medical conditions had a higher prevalence of PTSD than those who reported zero or one. Black men with obesity, diabetes, or heart disease and Black women with asthma had a higher prevalence of PTSD than those who did not report obesity, diabetes, heart disease, or asthma. Findings from this study underscore the need to alert social workers to the potential relationship between obesity, diabetes, or heart disease and PTSD for Black men and asthma and PTSD for Black women to help develop culturally appropriate biopsychosocial–spiritual assessments, with a measured focus on Black men based on their comparatively worse health status.

  • Social Work Care in Traumatic Brain Injury and Substance Use Disorder
           Treatment: A Capacity-Building Model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Coxe KA; Pence EK, Kagotho N.
      Pages: 277 - 288
      Abstract: Co-occurring traumatic brain injury (TBI) and substance use disorders (SUD) are a major public health concern, yet TBI is often underrecognized within SUD treatment organizations. Social workers in these organizations are well positioned to deliver tailored treatment, but little is known about what social workers are doing to address the needs of these clients. The purpose of this study was to examine current social work practices in providing care to clients with co-occurring TBI and SUD. Using grounded theory methodology, authors conducted semistructured interviews with 17 licensed social workers employed in various SUD treatment settings. Transcript coding was conducted through an iterative process and data were analyzed using NVivo (version 12.0). Results demonstrated that social workers lack basic knowledge on the relationship between TBI and SUD. Additional barriers to providing care included lack of skills to identify history of TBI, lack of community resources, poor agency collaboration, and access-to-care restrictions. Social workers identified their primary roles as advocacy, care coordination, and serving on multidisciplinary teams. These results informed development of a capacity-building model, with recommendations for social work situated in each level of the socioecological framework. This study has important implications for building workforce capacity and collaborative care systems to improve client outcomes.

  • Hospital Parenting Support for Adults with Incurable End-Stage Cancer:
           Multidisciplinary Health Professional Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steiner V; Joubert L, Shlonsky A, et al.
      Pages: 289 - 298
      Abstract:  Patients with incurable end-stage cancer (IESC) who are parenting minor-age children often experience parenting-related distress. Parenting concerns are not always addressed as part of routine hospital-based psychosocial care. Currently, there is a lack multidisciplinary health professional (HP) perspectives in this area. An exploratory study of hospital-based HP perspectives of adult patients’ and coparents’ parenting experiences, support needs, and parenting supportive care practice was conducted. Twelve multidisciplinary HPs from one Australian tertiary hospital participated in a semistructured focus group and interviews. Data were audio recorded, transcribed, and analyzed using thematic analysis. Results showed HPs were cognizant of patients’ and coparents’ diverse parenting support needs and experiences and other aspects that comprise best practice. However, multilevel organization, HP, and patient/coparent barriers impeded optimal practice. Barriers included a nonsystemized approach to screening patients’ parenting status and parenting support needs, inadequate resources, limited professional support, hospital environment, and parent psychosocial factors. This article provides feasible options for addressing practice barriers. Reviewing what factors influence optimal parenting focus from interdisciplinary HP perspectives helped identify potential strategies that could influence a shift from medical-focused care to more holistic family-focused patient care.

  • Family Identity and Roles in the Context of Li-Fraumeni Syndrome: “No
           One’s Like Us Mutants”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Wilsnack C; Young JL, Merrill SL, et al.
      Pages: 299 - 307
      Abstract: Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) is a rare hereditary cancer syndrome in which individuals have a significantly increased risk of developing multiple cancers throughout the life span. An LFS diagnosis may shift the individual’s sense of self and tolerance of cancer risk as they engage in cancer screening and cancer prevention activities. This study examined the impact of family identity on health decision making, communication, and role function. Forty-five families completed one or more interviews during an annual, protocol-specific cancer screening study. An interdisciplinary team analyzed 66 interviews using interpretive description and modified grounding theory. Thematically, identity emerged as an evolving construct regarding self and/or family, embedded in historical and ongoing experiences with LFS. Notions of individual and shared family identities guided decision making related to healthcare and influenced interpersonal communication and role function between supportive networks and families. Alignment between individual, family, and generational identities may shape engagement in genetic testing, risk management, and family life. Medical teams that are unequipped to address the psychosocial challenges that LFS populations face may include mental health professionals on interprofessional care teams to navigate risk management and consequential familial conflict.

  • Values Not Our Own: Interrogating Psychosocial Suitability in the
           Transplant Social Work Assessment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Srikanthan S.
      Pages: 308 - 311
      Abstract: A primary role of social workers in North American transplant programs is to assess potential organ recipients’ psychosocial suitability for a life-saving transplantation (Sas, 2019). In a context of organ scarcity, the social work assessment is part of a larger multidisciplinary evaluation that aims to prevent waste (Gordon, 2000). Neglected in this focus on waste prevention is social work’s professional mandate for social justice. Although a biomedical perspective presents organ allocation as an objective, pragmatic, and fair decision-making process, transplantation is laden with Western values of personal responsibility and efficiency, which, in practice, conflict with social work’s values of fair and equitable treatment and access to resources, including life-saving organs. In this column, I critically reflect on social work assessments for determining psychosocial suitability for transplant, illustrating how the values for personal responsibility and efficiency individualize systemic health inequities and constrain our practice. Given our professional value of social justice, I argue that social work must align with promoting equity in transplantation.
