BENEFITS OF INTEGRATION OF CPS WITH CARE COORDINATION INTO HEALTH CARE SETTINGS Brett S. Bartruff, LCSW
The use of peer supports is a successful intervention to coordinate and establish care for patients needing behavioral health services and other case management needs. This presentation will offer several examples of programs throughout the state that utilize peer supports to respond to patient needs in several health care settings. Attendees will receive information for peer supports throughout the state that can be accessed by their healthcare organization
After gaining information from this session, participants will be able to:
(1) Provide an overview of how the use of peers is growing and how their future appears to be heading towards more involvement in case management in various settings (i.e. in- and out- patient, emergency departments, recovery programs); and,
(2) Explore how peers can be used in their own practice settings to help improve client compliance and outcomes.
