The end of the Cold War and the fall of Communism in Europe resulted in profound changes in U.S. defense policy.
Those changes led to dramatic reductions in personnel and programs within the Army.
The Army Medical Department (AMEDD) is also being reduced in size and reorganized.
At the same time, the AMEDD is facing escalating health care costs associated with demand and access to medical care.
Social work services in Army medical treatment facilities are being directly affected by these system changes.
Therefore, the question is raised whether changes in the organization and delivery of social work services are being initiated or anticipated.
To what extent are social work chiefs of service involved in these decisions at the medical treatment facility level, and what are the positive and negative effects of reorganization on social work staff and the clients they serve ?
