Successful outcomes are only as good as the practitioner's ability to ethically engage, screen, assess, and intervene with each patient and their family. Implicit and explicit biases can weave their way into how the workforces walk with their populations on their intervention journey.

This course is part of a three-part series that will address

  • Ethical engagement of patients and colleagues
  • Ethical screening, assessment, and treatment planning
  • Application of ethical interventions for population-based treatment

  • This four-chapter course will provide the interprofessional workforce with distinct short-term interventions to advance the patient and provider relationship across specialty circumstances. The course content is applicable for all members of the interprofessional care team across the transitions of care (e.g., primary and specialty care, ambulatory, ED, acute and long-term care settings, home health, community-based), particularly for case managers, nurses, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech-language pathologists, and social workers.

    1. Ethics and Bias in Intervention

    Implicit and explicit biases impact clinical reasoning and how professionals define which appropriate short-term interventions to use. Patients can be blamed for not engaging in treatment when cookie-cutter approaches to care are ineffective across the cultural landscape of populations. Learn about concordant and discordant treatment, what bias busters should be heeded, and how the acronym HSELI (hear, see, experience, listen, and individuality) can shift your ethical intervention practices.

    2. Intervention Opportunities

    A new generation of trauma-informed interventions has shifted how patients and their families experience treatment interventions, especially in healthcare settings. Learn about how the Trauma-Informed Care 2.0 and Healing Ethno-Racial Trauma (HEART) frameworks shift interventions across populations who have experienced historical, experiential, and event traumas.

    3. Implementing Short-Term Treatment Intervention in Specialty Situations

    The workforce can feel pressured to implement effective short-term treatment plans with patients experiencing co-occurring illnesses that span physical, behavioral, and psychosocial health needs. Learn how to partner with these patients and employ the 5 A’s (ask, advise, assess, assist, and arrange). In addition, patients who have experienced interpersonal violence also present with distinct needs for practitioners to manage. Experience how the CUES (Confidentiality, Universal Education and Empowerment, and Support) framework can advance the professional-patient treatment process.

    4. Short-Term Behavioral Health Intervention and Treatment

    Listening and processing information can be hampered when our patients, their families, or even we are stressed to the max. Learn about quick strategies to enhance everyone’s energy and efforts, such as 4-7-8 breathing, sleep hygiene, and butterfly hugs.
