National Depression Screening
The June story "Expansion of Cancer Research Role Eyed" misnamed one of the groups represented at an April 30 meeting. The group's correct name is Association of Oncology Social Work.
A June story quoted a source that referred only to MSWs as the professionals who would be assisted by paraprofessionals under a proposed state child welfare service model. At the outset, however, the story defined "paraprofessionals" as "those with specialized knowledge and training like case aides and aides from the community whom some call 'preprofessionals'" meaning those lacking professional social work degrees at any level. NASW considers persons with baccalaureate, master's and doctoral social work degrees to be professional social workers.
