Data Summary and Analysis of Clinical Social Work Program
Implementation at The FAMU School of Nursing Gretna Wellness Center
May 3, 2005
(Updated commentary added 2011)
INTRODUCTION: The following graphs highlight various components and aspects of the social work program [that used to operate] at the FAMU School of Nursing Gretna Wellness Center (the facility was closed several years after this report was originally generated). The Center is [was] a walk-in medical care center that provides primary care in a rural North Florida County. The Social Work program was added to the Center via a partnership between the Center and The Florida State University College of Social Work and the first Clinical Intern placed there created the mental health (and case management) services in conjunction with the medical team and onsite Advanced Nurse Practitioner. The partnership provided insight into how the medical model and the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model, once unified for the interests of patients, can have positive outcomes. The Social Work program began in January of 2005 at the Center as a first time field placement opportunity through the Florida State University College of Social Work. In the first four months of the program’s implementation a multitude of administrative, program development and client-centered services were provided. In this summary the general client centered services are highlighted, dollar values are assigned to the services that were provided, and a segment of the report factors in limited administrative dollar values. The Wellness Center is [was] open two days per week for client services; many case management and administrative services were provided during days the clinic was closed. This report concludes with a summary, a discussion about cost/benefit analysis limitations, and a disclosure as to the data sources used to generate this report.
[NOTE: With the 2011-2012 commercial developments in the community the need for rural mental health services is likely to be increasingly necessary].
