Social workers are increasingly being hired to assist in integrated health care settings because their services are crucial in addressing the social determinants of health, which often interfere with treatment uptake and adherence. The purpose of this work was to better define the functions of social workers in integrated care delivery models. To do this, the researchers examined the activities of social workers in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in which behavioral and physical healthcare were integrated and provided by interprofessional health care teams.
