Students' Periodicals Online
Association to provide student members' NASW News, Social Work via Web.

Recognizing how extensively students use the Web, NASW will provide its membership publications online to student members in lieu of printed copies. This will become effective with the September 2003 issue of NASW News and the October 2003 issue of Social Work. The online editions will continue to give students the news and research of the profession - with the speed and ease of Internet access.

CPT Code Survey
NASW in July will participate in a survey distributed by the American Medical Association to determine work values of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes used to report services provided during testing of the cognitive function of the central nervous system.

If you perform tests and use instruments in your private practice or for an organization, your participation would help. To participate, provide your name, address and telephone number by e-mail or calling (202) 336-8265. A survey will be mailed to you.

Welfare Facts
With TANF reauthorization under review on Capitol Hill this year, social workers interested in welfare advocacy can find useful information at the Urban Institute's Assessing the New Federalism project, in which NASW is a partner.

The Washington, D.C.-based Urban Institute has investigated a number of issues in the multi-year project designed to analyze the devolution of responsibility for social programs from the federal government to the states.

A number of the reports can be accessed from here.
