Practice Standards Committee

NASWCO Chapter 0 7567

The Practice Standards Committee will be meeting virtually. Please contact committee chairs, Kathy Aguirre, LCSW and Balin Anderson, LCSW for more information.

The purpose of the Committee on Practice Standards is to examine areas of all social work practice and develop guidelines of ethical conduct. This committee does not function in lieu of the specially appointed NASW Committee on Inquiry, but rather in addition to such a committee. The Committee on Practice Standards focuses on areas in which standards of practice have not been developed, as well as areas where questions may have come forth regarding unclear interpretations of existing standards. The committee may issue advisory opinions regarding the practice of social work.

The Practice Standards Committee meets monthly and we welcome all members. To confirm a meeting date check the Community Calendar or contact the Chapter office.

The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. This process guides members in the ethical decision-making process, but does not provide supervision or give legal advice. The Committee will accept questions/issues that have an impact on social work practice. You are invited to attend a meeting in person or by phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the office to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.

Social Workers as Proxies

NASWCO Chapter 0 258

My name is Doris Carrillo. I am the Care Manager at Kentucky Circle Village, a senior independent living community in Denver. A recent Advance Care Planning presentation at our community raised concerns for some of our residents who have no friends or relatives to designate as their Agents under Medical Durable Power of Attorney. I am new to the area and am reaching out to you for direction. Is there a directory of Licensed Social Workers in the metroplex that serve as proxies? Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

If you would like to respond, contact Doris at dcarrillo@kentuckycircle.org

Research Study Seeking Participants

NASWCO Chapter 0 265

Dear Social Work Colleague,

This national survey of a randomly selected sample of MSW-level NASW members is being conducted by the following social work professors at the following universities:

Dr. Allen Rubin, University of Houston

Dr. Jennifer Bellamy, University of Denver

Dr. Danielle Parrish, Baylor University

Dr. Joanne Yaffe, University of Utah

The survey aims to assess the extent to which Master’s level social workers have been engaged in the evidence-based practice (EBP) process during their careers. It also aims to assess factors that might be associated with their degree of engagement in EBP. We expect the survey results to provide valuable guidance to schools of social work as well as social work practice settings that seek to maximize the quality of all levels of social work practice (macro and micro). The value of our results, however, depends on obtaining survey responses from a very large sample of participants. Therefore, we hope you will take about 5 to 10 minutes of your time to respond to our survey.

All responses will be anonymous in that we have no way of knowing from whom each response came. To show our appreciation for your participation, the survey will give you the opportunity to enter a raffle for one of ten $25 Amazon gift cards.

Thank you in advance if you decide to participate. Your participation is completely voluntary and anonymous. If you have any questions about this survey you can contact Dr. Rubin at 713-743-8287 or email him at arubin2@central.uh.edu.

Thank you for your attention and time. Your response is very important to this survey. The value of its results will depend on how many practitioners choose to respond.
