The Association of Medical Social Workers of Nigeria (AMSWON) has called on the federal and state governments to involve more medical social workers in the management of tertiary, secondary and primary health centers across the country.
They said this is an antidote to the array of psycho-social problems confronting many Nigerians.
According to the association, the employment and engagement of the experts in the area will also help the affected patients and those who would need professional advice “thus reducing the rising cases of psycho-social problems, divorce, poverty, malnutrition, juvenile delinquency, rape, examination malpractices, cultism, violence and prostitution among others”.
Speaking during the annual general meeting held at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, AMSWON National President, Alhaji Abubakar Alhassan Bichi declared that most of these problems do not require medication but professional advice of trained and certified Medical Social Workers.
