CoE Office Hours: Addressing Implicit Bias in Organizational Structures

Making the Case for High-functioning, Team-Based Care in the Community Behavioral Health Care Setting

Team based care is an essential element of all integrated care settings. Research suggests that team-based care not only improves patient outcomes like improved symptoms, quality of life and satisfaction, but it can also reduce burnout and improve staff capacity and experience, which in turn reduces medical errors and gaps in service. Widespread adoption of team-base care could reasonably address current challenges facing providers while responding to the demands of emerging value-based payment models – especially those that incentivize integrated care delivery.

Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions on Wednesday, October 28th, from 1-2 p.m. ET for our webinar, Making the Case for High-functioning, Team-Based Care in the Community Behavioral Health Care Setting. Not only will this webinar describe barriers and opportunities for implementing Team-Based Care in behavioral health care settings, but it will also launch the new MDI Team-Based Care paper and describe the paper’s purpose and utility. This webinar will also promote the launch of a new ECHO Learning Collaborative focused on Team-Based Care.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance use issues. More importantly, however, it’s a tool that public health leaders across the United States have begun to employ to engage in early detection and intervention around the signs and symptoms of specific illnesses. Learn from our experts, Tramaine El-Amin, Assistant Vice President, Strategic Partnerships, and Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT, Director, Trauma-Informed Services, about concrete tools and engagement with local mental health resources, national organizations, support groups, and online tools for mental health and addiction treatment and support.

Addressing Diversity, Equity and Engagement in Organizational Structures

Research shows that African Americans, Latinos and other historically marginalized communities, continue to face disproportionate challenges within organizational processes and practices, from hiring practices, to supervision and evaluation. These processes have been proven to be impacted by the systemic inequity within the policies themselves, as well as the individual bias of application. Often these biases, rooted in systemic racism, can impact prejudicial behaviors, such as microaggressions and inequitable decision making related to staff of color causing trauma and moral injury.

Please join us for our webinar, Addressing Implicit Bias in Organizational Structures, on Wednesday, October 21st , from 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET as we explore implicit bias, moral injury and what organizations can do to create safe, secure and equitable environments for all staff to reduce trauma, avoid re-traumatization and build resiliency.

CoE Office Hours: Virtual Clinical Supervision during COVID-19; Strategies for Adjusting to Your Needs

Providing supervision is critical to support and build the capacity of staff and due to the ongoing pandemic, many providers had to shift to providing virtual supervision. Given this shift, organizations are learning new ways of delivering supervision and ways to provide guidance to staff as they navigate their work.

Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions and one of our National Council affiliate members, Motivo, on Wednesday, October 14th from 3:00 PM ET to 4:00 PM ET to discuss strategies on how to navigate tele-supervision; share best practices and  lessons learned; and highlight tools and resources to support supervision, including supervision models focusing on training, policies & procedures, documentation, performance review processes, and supervision evaluations.

CoE Office Hours: Strategies for Integrating Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Formerly Incarcerated People Re-entering their Communities

Prisons and jails are the largest behavioral health treatment institutions/organizations in every state, and often, especially for those with substance use disorders and mental health conditions, jail or prison are the entry points to Behavioral Health treatment. Once individuals with substance use disorders are released from prison, they have a greater risk of disrupted behavioral health treatment and even fatal overdose due to the lack of coordination and the integration of treatment.

Join us on Tuesday, October 13th from 3:00-4:00pm ET to continue the conversation from the recent webinar, “Strategies for Integrating Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Formerly Incarcerated People Re-entering their Communities”. We will have an open discussion on strategies and lessons learned for Integrating Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Formerly Incarcerated People Re-entering their Communities.

Strategies for Integrating Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Formerly Incarcerated People Re-entering their Communities

Prisons and jails are the largest behavioral health treatment institutions/organizations in every state, and often, especially for those with substance use disorders and mental health conditions, jail or prison are the entry points to Behavioral Health treatment. Once individuals with substance use disorders are released from prison, they have a greater risk of disrupted behavioral health treatment and even fatal overdose. Integrated healthcare providers are uniquely positioned to address these challenges by providing continuous behavioral healthcare, substance use treatment and primary care to formerly incarcerated persons upon reentry to their communities, and by collaborating with corrections systems and the broader community system of care to provide services to this population.

Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions, in partnership with Health Management Associates, on Wednesday, October 7th, from 3-4 p.m. ET for Strategies for Integrating Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Formerly Incarcerated People Re-entering their Communities. Participants will learn about:

  • The fundamentals of re-entry planning for formerly incarcerated persons with a Substance Use Disorder returning to the community
  • The current community provider regulatory and service realities for accessing community-based and integrated behavioral health, substance use and physical health services, such as MAT, and other related services
  • Ways in which the corrections systems are a part of the broader community system of care and should be prioritized by integrated care organizations
