Course Description:

Suicide, behavioral health and the opioid crisis are hot topics in today’s tumultuous society. It affects everyone in all professions. So, how do we handle patient conditions that are within our professional specialty? How do we handle patient conditions outside of our professional specialty? How do we communicate with other professionals to seek guidance and intervention for our patient that may be suffering on the inside? How do you go about providing support and direction for a patient? How do you recognize the often subtle changes in your patient that may be on a pathway of addiction or suicide?

This highly interactive, interprofessional conference is sure to engage you. Discussion will first focus on four quadrants: physical, mental/emotional, social and spiritual as they relate to whole person care. Focal presentations will include behavioral health, suicide, and opioid use in the general population, as well as among healthcare providers. Tools for advancing the science of whole person care, improving communication between disciplines, recognizing behavioral health challenges and improving overall patient care will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the individual speakers and a panel of experts through Poll Everywhere.
