HALF DAY PRECONFERENCE UNIVERSITY
State of the Science in Crisis Services
Sunday, May 4 from 1 pm to 5 pm
As healthcare continues to focus on accountability for improved clinical outcomes, usage of lower cost services, improved public safety, and a demand for positive client experiences, the importance of crisis services grows.
With increasing attention to the value of crisis services, how do we support excellence? Financing, collaborative partnerships, standard operating procedures, current research, use of data, and innovative technology are cornerstones of effective intervention delivery for hotlines, mobile teams, and crisis stabilization.
Come learn about funding opportunities, program design, emergency room diversion, peer run services and crisis respite, the application of technological advances, and community partnerships. You’ll see a live mobile dispatch demonstration and learn how client information can be shared between providers.
If you are currently involved in crisis services or interested in starting new programs, come and share with one another and hear from some of the field’s seasoned veterans.
