IPSWICH, Mass. — May 2, 2013 — Social Work Reference Center(SWRC), a resource designed specifically for clinical practice, education and research, is the latest addition to the point-of-care product line from EBSCO.

Designed to increase the speed and accuracy of decisions and provide the most current evidence for patient care, Social Work Reference Center, will appeal to hospital and healthcare providers, corporate provider networks, religious and nonprofit organizations, government agencies, school agencies and institutions that provide social services education programs.
