a description of three primary roles of medical social workers that you consider to be inspiring and rewarding. Explain why. Explain how these roles directly support patients and their families. Explain how these roles might directly address three issues related to patient care (e.g., noncompliance with treatment regimen). Then, describe specific interventions (e.g., patient education to improve treatment compliance) you might implement when performing your primary roles to resolve the three specific issues you selected. Illustrate these issues and interventions with examples (e.g., patient education or health literacy to reinforce treatment regimen).
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources and the current literature using appropriate APA format and style.
