The Florida Social Work Research Center is an online research tool that will serve to link the practice community with social work research in order to increase the utilization of evidence-based practice in Florida. It will also allow policy makers to access research data in a convenient format. Currently, we are accepting abstracts from topical experts and opportunities for research from agencies or organizations. Abstracts and research opportunities may be sent to Jim Akin, NASW-FL Executive Director, at email@example.com.
Each year, the NASW-FL Board of Directors approves its overall advocacy agenda. This agenda is a broad perspective of our overall goals for the session and what we stand for as an association. Later, as bills are filed with the Florida Legislature, this agenda will be our guide for what bills to support or oppose. It also helps direct our action when the Governor’s office or other executive agencies create new policies that impact our profession or our clients.
In an effort to address concerns of clinical social workers, new practice perspectives and alerts are available for members. The information is provided by Miriam Coleman at the NASW National Office.
Additional updates will be prepared specifically on “PQRS 2014” and the “2014 Medicare 8 percent psychotherapy reimbursement increase for clinical social workers.
