  • Navigating Documentation Requirements for the Peer Provider

    June 13, 2024  10:00 am - 11:30 am

    Quality documentation is an essential part of mental health service delivery, however, the skill of documenting in mental health settings is one that must be learned and practiced. As Peer Support Services is a newer addition to the MHOTRS service continuum, this webinar will support Peer Providers in learning about the purposes of documentation, understanding the connection between assessment, service planning and progress notes, and assisting providers in becoming familiar with essential information to be included in Peer Support Service progress notes.  Participants will also learn strategies for remaining current and timely.

    HMA recently released a report on the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) with background on the structure of the program, and recommendations for reforms that could be considered. We'd like to invite you to a webinar that will provide background and context about the PFS for interested parties who may be less familiar with the payment system and why the stakeholder community got to the point of needing to “fix” the fee schedule. We will discuss pressing policy and payment concerns, provide an overview of key structural issues within the PFS that should be considered and balanced when making policy changes to the payment system, highlight different stakeholder perspectives, and offer recommendations within CMS authority.

  • Introduction to Psychedelics for the Treatment of Substance Use Disorder

    June 13, 2024  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Over the past decade, psychedelic therapy has seen a resurgence of interest from the scientific and medical communities, with accumulating evidence supporting its safety and efficacy in treating various conditions, including substance use disorder (SUD). Research dating back to the mid-20th century has highlighted the therapeutic potential of both classic psychedelics, such as LSD, psilocybin, DMT, ayahuasca, and mescaline, as well as newer non-classic psychedelics like ketamine, MDMA and ibogaine.

    Join the Substance Use Interest Group on Thursday, June 13, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET as we welcome Dr. Sandeep Nayak, Medical Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic & Consciousness Research, to explore the emerging science of using psychedelics in addiction treatment. Our discussion will cover the historical context and evolution of the field, foundational information on psychedelic therapy for SUD, past and emerging research, the diverse cultural contexts in which psychedelics are used, and the current regulatory landscape for using psychedelics in addiction treatment. We will also delve into specific research findings on the use of psilocybin for reducing illicit opioid use, improving quality of life, smoking cessation and addressing comorbidity in depression and alcohol use.

    Register Today!

    Addressing the workforce crisis requires a comprehensive approach that aligns and “pulls” multiple levers of change in concert and over time to create meaningful impact. A combination of infrastructure development and the implementation of workforce strategies has shown promising results in one state, via a collaborative and intentional approach to advancing workforce solutions.

    Key highlights of this month’s jam include:

    • Meeting a state commissioner and learning how they are leading a major workforce development effort throughout their state.
    • Hearing about one state’s experience designing a workforce collaborative and implementing the state’s first strategic action plan specifically devoted to the behavioral health and intellectual and developmental disabilities workforce.
    • Learning examples of actionable infrastructure-building mechanisms and promising workforce strategies that can be applied in other states and localities.
    • Understanding recent state-enacted legislation focused on behavioral health loan forgiveness, alternative paths to licensure/removing exam requirements and examples of strengthening recruitment and education.
    • Exploring a summary crosswalk of more than 400 workforce recommendations from published reports that serves as an actionable roadmap for addressing the workforce crisis.
