EBSCO Releases Social Work Reference Center
Social Work Reference Center (SWRC), a resource designed specifically for clinical practice, education, and research, is the latest addition to the point-of-care product line from EBSCO. Social Work Reference Center is a comprehensive reference tool that provides evidence-based information to social workers and other mental health professionals directly at the point-of-care.
Designed to increase the speed and accuracy of decisions and provide the most current evidence for patient care, Social Work Reference Center will appeal to hospital and healthcare providers, corporate provider networks, religious and nonprofit organizations, government agencies, school agencies, and institutions that provide social services education programs.
Social Work Reference Center provides the latest evidence-based information through a variety of content types including evidence-based care sheets, quick lessons, and skill competency checklists. The resource also includes clinical assessment tools, practice guidelines, drug information, continuing education modules, and patient education information.
The evidence-based information provided by Social Work Reference Center stems from a seven-step evidence-based methodology to systematically identify and critically appraise all clinical content. Literature surveillance occurs daily and topics are updated as evidence changes.
