Professor Lynette Joubert spoke at the launch about the aim of this study, which was to document the role of social workers from 17 health social work departments in Victoria, both metropolitan and regional, who collaborated with Lynette and Dr Nicole Hill. The report provides a unique profile of the workforce, the scope of social work practice and the nature of the settings as well as core competencies and skills management.
