  • The COMPLETE Care Act: A Step Forward for Integrated Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 5 - 6
      Abstract: The integration of behavioral health into primary care settings has grown significantly over the past few decades along with evidence to support this more inclusive approach to treating the whole person. It has become clear that separate structures for addressing behavioral and physical health are impractical and insufficient from consumer and provider viewpoints alike. However, efforts to unify care remain inadequate. It has been estimated that more than 80 percent of patients with physical health concerns seen in primary care settings also have social and emotional difficulties (Bikson et al., 2009). Yet, “less than half of the 59 million Americans experiencing mental illness in 2020 received any treatment” (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality [AHRQ], 2022, section I). Staggeringly, only 6 percent of those experiencing substance use disorders receive treatment (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 2023). Because primary care is the most commonly used healthcare venue, targeting integration in these settings bears the greatest capacity for reducing barriers to access, timely screening, diagnosis, and treatment while enhancing care coordination. Primary care settings are also best equipped to recognize and treat multimorbid physical health conditions associated with both mental illness and substance use disorders. Although research supports integrated care settings because of patient outcomes and cost savings, particularly among high utilizers of healthcare resources, separate and unequal payment systems for behavioral and physical healthcare are a significant obstacle to realizing a more holistic approach (AHRQ, 2022, section II).

  • The Impact of Neighborhood-Level Factors on Perceived Quality of Hospice
           Service Satisfaction: A Geographic Information System Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 7 - 15
      Abstract: AbstractRacial/ethnic minorities are underrepresented in hospice care in the United States, despite this being the standard of care for terminally ill individuals. Research indicates that location of services (e.g., rural vs. urban) plays a role in the differences in quality and quantity of services observed. However, the influences of neighborhood structural characteristics on quality of hospice services have not been explored. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between hospice neighborhood characteristics and caregiver-rated satisfaction with services in Florida. Data were derived from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Hospice Survey and American Community Survey; ArcGIS was used to generate heat maps to provide visual representations. Findings showed that higher neighborhood immigrant density predicted lower family satisfaction with timely care, communication, spiritual support, and likelihood to recommend the agency services. The U.S. population is projected to continue to grow in its diversity, and thus understanding neighborhood characteristics associated with racial/ethnic minorities’ perception of care quality are important for shaping care improvements.

  • Validation of the Modified Weight Bias Internalization Scale (WBIS-M)
           among First-Generation Asian Immigrants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 17 - 24
      Abstract: AbstractInternalized weight bias (i.e., the application of negative weight-based stereotypes to one’s self-evaluation) is associated with adverse physical and mental health outcomes. The 10-item version of the Modified Weight Bias Internalization Scale (WBIS-M) is one of the most commonly used measures to assess internalized weight bias. However, studies examining the psychometric properties of the WBIS-M are limited in racially minoritized U.S.-based populations. The current study sought to examine the factor structure of the 10-item version of the WBIS-M in a sample of first-generation Asian immigrants, as both native and foreign-born Asian populations have consistently demonstrated higher rates of weight-related concerns relative to other racially minoritized groups. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess the factor structure, and a multiple indicator multiple cause modeling approach was used to assess associations between internalized weight bias and sociodemographic predictors. Results confirm the unidimensionality of the WBIS-M and provide preliminary support for a nine-item version. Identifying as a woman (p = .027) and perceiving oneself as overweight (p < .001) were significantly associated with greater internalized weight bias. When working with Asian and Asian American clients, mental health service providers should be aware of potential weight-related concerns and may consider using the WBIS-M to assess for internalized weight bias.

  • Initial Health Outcomes of a Community-Based Collaboration for Children in
           Foster Care

      Pages: 25 - 33
      Abstract: AbstractChildren entering foster care have complex health needs that can persist across the lifespan. Efforts to improve access to primary care services exist; however, few have been tested. This study evaluated the Missoula Foster Child Health Program, a tri-agency, community-based collaboration in Montana, to determine its impact on health outcomes for youth in care. Demographic, health outcome, and child welfare data were collected from 485 children (50 percent male, 50 percent female, aged 0–18). At program admission, children had unmet service needs, lacking a primary care provider (30 percent), a dental provider (58 percent), and required vaccinations (33 percent). Three-quarters of children had at least one health condition, and one-third had a behavioral health concern. Overall, children in the program had significant decreases in physical and behavioral health problems from admission to discharge. Older children and those with fewer placements were more likely to have positive health changes. Data are promising, representing positive health outcomes of a community-based model for children in care.

  • The Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Receipt of Needed Medical Care and
           At-Home Support among U.S. Households Receiving Supplemental Security
           Income and Social Security Disability Insurance on the Basis of Disability

      Pages: 35 - 43
      Abstract: More than 8.1 million Americans with disabilities qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Individuals with disabilities were particularly vulnerable to COVID-19, which may have altered individual and household behavior. Research on the impact of COVID-19 on individuals with disabilities and their families remains limited.
      Authors analyzed 2020 National Health Interview Survey data. Logistic regression models were applied, controlling for the effects of age, race, sex, income, education, employment, and health status. Households with SSI/SSDI beneficiaries with disabilities were associated with significantly greater odds of delaying or forgoing medical care and receiving needed personal and household care at home due to COVID-19 compared with households without beneficiaries. The health and well-being of households with individuals with disabilities may require more robust and inclusive social work initiatives that aim to reduce adverse pandemic impacts.

  • Gaining an Empathetic Insight into Parenting: Evaluating Infant Simulator
           Dolls for Professional Learning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 45 - 54
      Abstract: AbstractThe development of an empathetic approach when working with parents and families is fundamental to both social work and children’s nursing; however, opportunities to develop this are limited. RealCare Baby infant simulator dolls were used with the aim of enabling students to gain an empathetic insight into parenting. A qualitative, evaluation study involving semistructured interviews with 10 social work and 11 children’s nursing students was undertaken to evaluate experiences and views of infant simulator dolls, in relation to professional learning. Using reflexive thematic analysis of interview data, six key themes were identified: (1) positive experiences, (2) challenges, (3) impact on self, (4) empathy toward parents, (5) realism and (6) learning by reflection. All themes were evident from the participants’ accounts in the context of the parenting experience. In addition to the overall positive impact on students, practical and technical challenges were also identified. However, despite these difficulties, participants valued the learning experience gained from caring for a doll and many articulated how an empathetic understanding of the parenting role was enhanced. This will potentially enable social work and children’s nursing students to support parents more sensitively and empathetically.

  • A Promising Approach to Addressing the Needs of Patients with Endocarditis
           Secondary to Injection Drug Use: A Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 55 - 58
      Abstract: Driven by the ongoing surge of injection substance use, rates of hospitalization for infective endocarditis are increasing. In the United States, the 15,000 patients hospitalized annually for endocarditis secondary to opioid use disorder (OUD) have distinctly poor outcomes, with one in 10 dying in the hospital and one in 20 having a patient-directed discharge (against medical advice; Rudasill et al., 2019). These patients amass more than $700 million in annual inpatient charges (Ronan & Herzig, 2016) and require lengthy hospitalizations, typically for completion of six weeks of intravenous (IV) antibiotic therapy (Schranz et al., 2019). Despite the availability of effective medications for OUD (MOUD) such as buprenorphine and methadone, these are not initiated or continued during or following hospitalization for most patients (Rosenthal et al., 2016). Additionally, many patients do not complete their IV antibiotic course, which is essential to prevent morbidity and mortality related to endocarditis (Adams et al., 2022).

  • Clinician Scientists in Health Social Work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 59 - 62
      Abstract: The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (2019) recently released a consensus report on integrating healthcare and social care services. The authoring committee’s recommendations for better integration of social care into the delivery of healthcare services include growing the workforce for competent practice at the intersection of health and social care and conducting research and evaluation on integrated health and social care programming design, implementation, and effectiveness. The report describes the importance of interprofessional healthcare teams for the design, implementation, and provision of health system-based social care, and specifically acknowledges the historic expertise of professional social workers at the intersection of health and social care. In the rapidly growing field of health and social care integration, the discipline of social work should consider developing a cadre of clinician scientists (CSs) to bridge the gap between the historic practice expertise of health social work and the nascent, yet burgeoning, science of health and social care integration. Other health professions have a long history of a CS role but have faced increasing difficulties in defining and maintaining it over time. Social work CSs may be one mechanism by which health and social care integration can be better designed, implemented, and evaluated, but lessons from CSs in other health disciplines should be heeded.
