A longitudinal look at social work leadership in hospitals: the impact of a changing health care system


, : A longitudinal look at social work leadership in hospitals: the impact of a changing health care system. Health & Social Work 30(2): 155-165

This article examines the responses of social work administrators to the changes occurring throughout their hospitals over three time periods in the 1990s; the major accomplishments of social work services in their facilities; and the failures, frustrations, and obstacles in the delivery of social work services. It compares the reports of social work director cohorts on the changes they experienced over an eight-year period with what they had expected in their settings. It also analyzes their perceptions over time of obstacles and opportunities for hospital social work administrators in response to these changes. The authors present the ways in which social work administrators understand and address the complexities they face.
