Corporate Chief Medical Officer; Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine · Loma Linda University School of Medicine
AmeriWound · Lyndhurst, OH

ABSTRACT:

The ability to react, re-energize, recoil, and address challenges as one’s career unfolds is a common theme for emerging and established leaders.  During this session, the speaker will share their experience working with PTSD clients to provide examples that can be applied within workplace situations.  Attendees will be equipped with tools and strategies to identify and overcome adversity within their teams.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Explore current concerns about the Healthcare workforce burnout epidemic
  2. Share case stories of the probable healthcare business impact related to workforce relations
  3. Apply strategies to address inequities and improve healthcare outcomes

Session 2A: Hot Topics in Medicare Regulation

Ronald Hirsch, MD, FACP, CHCQM
Vice President · Regulations and Education
R1 Physician Advisory Services · Chicago, IL

ABSTRACT:

The stream of new Medicare regulations never seems to stop running. 2018 brought us the removal of total knee replacement from the inpatient only list and talk about moving many cardiac procedures to surgery centers, the Medicare Advantage plans seem to continue to test the patience of all of us, and the 2019 CMS regulations will be posted for review. In this session, Dr. Hirsch will review the most recent regulatory updates that case managers need to know.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Review the anticipated changes for 2019
  2. Optimize their processes for current regulations
  3. Better understand the challenges facing case managers in 2018

Session 2B: Inspired by the Research and Wisdom of Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW: Developing Whole-Hearted Social Work Practice

Sarah E. Power, LCSW
Regional Manager of Social Work Practice and Programs Care Management
Providence Health & Services · Lake Oswego, OR

ABSTRACT:

Brene Brown’s research regarding shame and vulnerability has shown light on our personal narratives of being unworthy, unlovable, and incapable of change. However, Dr. Brown suggests that our imperfections do not make us inadequate, rather, they are what connect us to each other and to our humanity.  This session will explore how Dr. Brown’s research findings relate to contemporary social work practice and how we might integrate her wisdom into our professional development journey.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Define Dr. Brown’s Shame Resilience Theory
  2. Identify three ways in which shame resilience can be cultivated
  3. Consider how shame resilience principles can come alive within our development as professional social workers

Session 3: Neurobiology of the Hungry Ghost: Understanding Addiction

Lydia Anne M Bartholow, DNP, PMHNP, CARN-AP
Associate Medical Director · Outpatient Substance Use Disorder Services
Central City Concern · Portland, OR

ABSTRACT:

This workshop is an interactive introduction to the brain science of addiction from a trauma informed, health-equity lens. While we lean heavily on the traditional neurobiology of addiction, we view each aspect through the lens of trauma and structural violence. Participants will gain an understanding in the basic neurobiology of all substance use disorders, as well as a population-based look at who struggles with addiction and why. We will wrap up with a brief review of the medical interventions for addictions and why these are both controversial and necessary.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Describe the connection between trauma and substance use disorders
  2. Identify key neurobiological processes that occur in all substance use disorders
  3. Report the necessity of pharmacotherapies for substance use disorders

Session 4: Serving Patients with Substance Abuse

Daren Ford, LCSW, CADC II
Mental Health Provider and Adjunct Professor · Portland State University School of Social Work
Counseling Services of Portland · Washougal, WA

ABSTRACT:

Patients with substance use disorder can come with a lot of complicated tri-morbidity situations that can create obstacles for effective care. This discussion is designed to support care management practices when working with patients impacted by substance use disorder. This is an opportunity to explore the impact of substance use disorder through the lens of social work, trauma, ecology, and social justice.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Assess how trauma, attachment and environmental factors impact one’s ability to cope and attune for self-soothing and regulation from a strength-based perspective
  2. Identify approaches, interventions, and effective practices when working with patients impacted by substance use disorder
  3. Utilize conceptual frameworks of ecology using the lens of micro, mezzo, and macro theory

Session 5: Oregon’s Coordinated Care Model: Transforming the Landscape of Care Coordination for Vulnerable Populations in Oregon

Jennifer Valentine, MSPH
Operations & Policy Analyst · Health Systems Division
Oregon Health Authority · Salem, OR

ABSTRACT:

The presentation will provide the audience with overview of the Oregon Health Plan’s over 1 million members and how coordinated care organizations are impacting care coordination and care transitions for the members they serve.  We will include the unique challenges of serving the Medicaid-Medicare dual eligible population and impacting members with special health care needs.   Highlights will include updates on Oregon’s 1115 waiver, work to address social determinants of health and use of new technologies to improve care coordination and care transitions. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Name ways that the Oregon Health Plan and Coordinated Care Organizations have achieved improvements in members’ outcomes, as well as steps Oregon Health Authority is taking to continue improving health outcomes and quality of care with partners across the state
  2. Identify strategies used in Oregon to impact social determinants of health and to enhance care outcomes through new technologies. Evaluate care management through case studies
  3. Compare lessons learned from Oregon’s Medicaid population with opportunities to impact your own practice and role in care coordination
