Client/patient need at the interface between health and social services on discharge from an acute general hospital
Gregory, Margaret F. (1997) Client/patient need at the interface between health and social services on discharge from an acute general hospital. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
One thousand four hundred and twenty two patients in an Acute General Hospital in Mansfield were studied over a one year period, 1989-90, in order to determine their needs for formal and informal care on discharge. The research method included a screening project for 189 patients on admission, an analysis of 1064 referrals to the Hospital Social Workers, and 169 referrals to the Hospital Discharge Scheme for Volunteer support. Patient/client needs for formal and informal care were found, and unmet needs after Hospital discharge were identified.
