The Utah Professionals Health Program (UPHP) was created by the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) to provide an alternative to public discipline and to assist licensed healthcare professionals whose ability to practice may be impaired due to a substance use disorder. In order to fulfill our mission, we are in need of evaluators who can properly evaluate potential participants of the program. This workshop will build upon the previous workshop held in November, 2021. Attendance at the previous training is not required. However, videos of the previous training will be made available to all who register for this training. Join this program and run a case study and work in small groups to formulate assessment findings and recommendations.
After this interactive experience, participants will be able to:
(1) Explain the UPHP and how it works, from reporting to monitoring as well as key differences in evaluating safety sensitive healthcare providers versus the general population; and,
(2) Apply emerging best practices in the treatment of healthcare professionals in the clinical setting.
