Integration of behavioral and physical health care is supposed to improve the quality of health care, but the sharing of mental health information with physical health providers can mean inferior medical care for people with psychiatric challenges. And integration of care won’t improve outcomes if we remain limited to services that have produced lackluster results. Tuesday, November 15, 2016, we’ll be talking about making fundamental changes in how we think about mental health care and the people who use it so that integrated care can work.
Health care professionals of all types, attorneys, and persons with lived experience will benefit from this cutting‐edge look at:
the lack of control over psychiatric information in medical records as a barrier to integrated care: how implicit bias against persons with psychiatric diagnoses affects the ability to get and deliver cost‐effective physical health care;
alternative approaches to mental health care, including housing first and complementary modalities, like meditation and pet therapy, that work;
how to make your records work for you and your client, and how you represent the client in your notes could have serious implications for them in numerous settings: employment, education, health care delivery and coverage, and court proceedings.
During the day, you will experience interactive demonstrations of treatment modalities and dynamic presentations by individuals incorporating new approaches to integrated care. Breakouts target the interests of lawyers (how to pursue successful privacy actions, employment discrimination cases, and more) and clinicians (practices that respect privacy, achieve better outcomes, and accommodate provider needs).
Participants will come away with tangible methods to improve integrated care and their professional and personal techniques for working with and supporting colleagues, clients, people with lived experience, and family members.
