Data from questionnaires and from a focus group were analysed. The findings draw attention to the nature of the role of the primary care social worker, including both the satisfying and challenging aspects of this role. It was evident that the participants liked the generic nature of their role and the fact that they worked with non-mandated clients. However, they encountered challenges related to resources, management structures and interdisciplinary work. The findings shed light on an area of social work that has been underresearched.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Routledge (Taylor & Francis)||Journal:||Social Work in Health Care||Volume:||52||Issue:||10||Start page:||930||End page:||946||Copyright (published version):||2013, Taylor & Francis Group||Keywords:||Primary care; Social Work; Health; Ireland||DOI:||10.1080/00981389.2013.834030||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
