Partnering Medical Community for More Trauma-informed Support

On 11 Apr 2023, MWS Family Service Centre (FSC) – Tampines hosted a group of staff including medical social workers from Changi General Hospital (CGH), as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen community partnerships.

Besides a discussion on case assessments and a Centre tour, CGH’s medical social workers shadowed the FSC’s social workers, sitting in on their client consultations and accompanying them on home visits. The collaboration is aimed at helping the medical team better understand the clients served by FSCs, who often grapple with multiple complex issues.

The visit follows the CGH team’s hosting of the FSC’s caseworkers for a short-term immersion programme in 2022, where the caseworkers gained insight to the medical team’s role in managing family violence. The teams had also discussed enhancing crisis management at A&E.
