Testing Procedures Survey

This spring, NASW will participate in a survey conducted by the American Medical Association to determine work and practice expense values for the Central Nervous System Current Procedural Terminology codes, which include testing procedures. Many clinical social workers perform testing procedures in their private practice, and other social workers conduct testing in agencies, testing centers, hospitals, and so forth. If testing is a function of your job and you are interested in participating in this survey process, call (202) 336-8265 or e-mail your name, address and telephone number.


Sanctions in Force Listed Online

NASW adjudicates certain allegations of violations of its Code of Ethics by members, and if violations are found, may impose sanctions. For the current list of sanctions of public notification imposed within the past 10 years that remain in force: Sanctions in Force
