The 2013 Conference Program

This annual conference began through a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Community Long Term Care and Behavioral Health Services and the Center for Social Welfare Research and Assessment in the Department of Social Work at Winthrop University. Its purpose is to share the research findings that have been done on behalf of the Bureau and the clients they serve. As a result, professionals providing long term care services have an opportunity to learn about research that can then be applied into practice.

The conference also provides a statewide forum for discussions about topics and trends that impact our communities. A great by-product of the conference has been the opportunity to establish and renew alliances among those committed to providing long term care services. Conference participants include social workers, nurses, administrators, case managers, community practitioners, and other human service professionals.
