Social Work in Public Health and Hospitals explores a variety of issues related to social work in hospital settings as well as the public policy concerns that guide them. Topics discussed include hospital stays for the elderly, identifying postnatal depression during well-child visits, breast-feeding and awareness of health recommendations, maternal health services in Nigeria, children living with parents with HIV and AIDS, patients’ rights in hospitals, harm reduction in hospitals, and more. The book also looks at public health services at rural and community clinics, at university hospitals, and at doctors’ offices.
