Working Session
The 2014 summit will be a working session for partners and stakeholders to review available curricula and field work, identify gaps in those areas, and develop recommendations that will provide social workers the skills to practice in an integrated health care environment serving a growing aging population. Summit participants will:

  • Review pre-summit webinars;
  • Review curricula (presented in Webinar II) and identify necessary additions or modifications;
  • Discuss current field practicums and strategies for expansion;
  • Consider successful interprofessional models of practice (presented in Webinar III) as a context for understanding curriculum and field practicum needs;
  • Prepare a curriculum and field practicum roadmap and develop recommendations for next steps. 

Partial funding for this conference is provided by NASW—California and the California Association of Deans and Directors.
