Guest Editorial


In the autumn issue of the magazine Clinical Social Work and Health Intervention we pay attention to extremely sensitive issues. The authors did not skip the topic of the Islamic view on the relationship between the administrative system and national governmental organizations. The aim of the study was to examine how a proper governmental system affects its national authority with an emphasis on the Islamic point of view. The second study on the infection of soft tissues and wounds from a physiotherapeutic perspective that was carried out in a mobile health unit in a refugee camp in the northern Bosnia includes an analysis of the second wave of asylum-seekers who could not wait for the completion of the asylum process on Greek islands, or their applications were rejected. The third contribution studies the selected factors that affect behavioral and psychological changes in the behavior of obstetricians and gynecologists at the maternal health center. We would like to bring this study to the attention of all health care professionals. In the fourth paper on the roles of nurses with academic title Mgr. in the field of practical health and medical education in Ukraine, we shift our view to the socio-health issues in the Eastern Europe. The fifth article studies the efficiency of the philosophical and educational program about the development of moral judgment, pro-social behavior and anger control of students.  This research was conducted with the aim to determine the effectiveness of the educational program on development of moral judgment, pro social behavior and anger control among students. It is followed by the publication: Emergency Situations in the Migratory and Refugee Health 2015-2018 and The Role of a Healthy Lifestyle in the Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases. The aim of this study was to assess the adherence to a healthy lifestyle of men and women and to compare which gender is more interested in a healthy lifestyle. In the eighth text, we come back to a multidisciplinary issue in Rehabilitation and Nursing Homes, the issue for the elderly and homeless – lessons not only for physiotherapy but also for epidemiology. The ninth study deals with the current most actual social issues. It is the topic of migrants versus homeless in rehabilitation and physiotherapeutic facilities suffering from ectoparasites – scabies are not a medical but a social problem. In the tenth text we come back to the medical issue of HIV treatment and its social aspects, the last one deals with the demand for the training courses for expert non-medical health care professionals. The autumn issue is concluded with the article that focuses on the need to adapt to the challenges of the aging population as well as with a reminder for the need to extend the education for physiotherapy and nursing in V4 – a need to adapt to the refugee crisis. This issue is again loaded with information from the field of clinical social work and health care as we perceive it in Europe. The authors of the studies have tried to shut “the metaphorical ever-expanding scissors” between social work and health care and put them into a multidisciplinary unit designed to help people living in the social exclusion.
