Social factors and clinical disease: a checklist data base for correlative analysis.

Abstract

The adequate care of a patient entails consideration of his social and psychological problems in addition to the relevant medical data. To facilitate this integrated approach, a Social Work Indices Checklist (SWIC) is described, and its use in practice is illustrated. A narrative report is generated from a possible 3095 items of information recorded in SWIC.
