Abstract/Description: "A field work placement in the social service department of the Veterans Administration Hospital, Augusta, Georgia, provided motivation and a source of data for this study. In reviewing the literature and conferring with social service administrators, it was pointed out that a basic criterion was needed in order to determine the positive effects of social service activities with neuropsychiatric tubercular patients. As the complexity of multiple interacting factors made a study of direct effect impossible, it was decided to compare social service activities and other factors to rapid and non-rapid movement of patients from Ward 14. This determined the association of other factors, in addition to social service activities, associated with movement and provided some basis on which further study of the effects of social service could be undertaken. An attempt was also made to show the association of specific characteristics of social service contacts with movement"--Introduction.
