March is also National Social Work month. We’ve added web pages to the Network 16 website describing a few skills that social workers bring to patients and facilities. Among the many things social workers do are:
- Help manage kidney disease
- Help assure quality of life
- Help with rehabilitation
- Help with education
- Help assure satisfaction
Find the flyer for facilities in this month’s Network 16 News at https://www.nwrn.org/providers-and-professional-staff/nw16n.html and this month’s Patient Bulletin for posting or handout to patients at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/mon.html .
