Abstract

BEYTELL, Anna-Marie. Fieldwork education in health contexts: Experiences of fourth-year bsw students. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2014, vol.50, n.2, pp.170-193. ISSN 2312-7198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15270/50-2-394.

The Social Work profession experiences various challenges in practice that influence the practice education of students. Educators, practitioners and the experiences of students should inform practice education in curriculums. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of fourth-year BSW students at the University of the Western Cape doing their fieldwork education in healthcare contexts. Integration of social work theories, the types of client problems, emotions caused by fieldwork and ethical dilemmas were challenges to students in health contexts. Supervision was emphasised by the students as a positive experience during fieldwork.
