Module VI of the Achieving Compliance in Behavioral Health Series

Behavioral Health: Family & Caregiver Education and Support
July 23
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
CE for NHA, Nurses, CEHCH, CEAL, Social Work

The involvement of families in the development of person-centered plans of care is important in identifying and addressing the individual?s specific needs. Too often, the relationships between family and professional caregivers are strained due to poor communication, complicated emotions, or family baggage not yet revealed to the professional staff. Ensuring families and community and/or private-duty caregivers are provided with appropriate education and included in the ongoing conversation about the care of the person they represent is vital to establishing a positive care partnership. This session describes a variety of ways in which the successful orientation, education and ongoing communication between family, community/private-duty, and the professional caregiving staff can be developed and sustained.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this series, the participant will be able to:

1. Explain the care needs of Family and Professional Caregivers.
2. Explain the importance of understanding the impact of behavioral health challenges on family dynamics and community relationships.
3. Develop improved methods for the coordination of person-centered care planning with Family and Professional Caregivers.
