Video Runtime: 61 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 39 Minutes

The frontline interdisciplinary workforce faces an increased incidence and prevalence of complex chronic illnesses that encompass physical, behavioral, and psychosocial health. Patients within healthcare settings have become tougher to engage, which impacts successful engagement in treatment processes. Implicit and explicit biases can easily impede the ethical effort of any member of the care team. However, defined tactics will ensure greater success in maneuvering through these challenging themes.

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 initial four-chapter course will enhance workforce understanding of how these biases impact patient engagement and provide clear strategies to reconcile these issues with application opportunities. 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, and community-based settings, particularly for case managers, nurses, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech-language pathologists, and social workers.

    The increased incidence and prevalence of physical, behavioral, and psychosocial health in healthcare settings means a moving target of issues for the practitioners to screen and assess patients. Implicit and explicit biases factor into screening and assessment, and they impact patient outcomes.

  • 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 an ethical tool kit for more effective and efficient screening and assessment. This 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, and community-based) particularly for case managers, nurses, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech-language pathologists, and social workers.

    Video Runtime: 60 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 37 Minutes

    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.
