Training Overview

As healthcare reform advances and as more and more states move to health home models, the critical knowledge and skills of case managers will be needed in new ways. This new marketplace requires case managers to expand their capacity in healthcare navigation, build on their existing skills in health behavior change, and possess a better understanding of the common health problems and basic interventions both for individuals with serious mental illness and those with chronic health problems. A more knowledgeable and better skilled case manager workforce will also provide organizations with a service that can be marketed across the healthcare system.   This 1- day, training covers key issues for people with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Training topics include:

  • National forces driving change
  • Conceptual framework for change:  health homes, chronic care      model
  • The role of case managers in supporting the navigation of the health care system
  • The physical health needs of people with behavioral health challenges

  • Using existing and expanded skills to support health behavior change
  • Applying rapid cycle change principles for working with people on health behavior change, goal      planning, and documentation.

Following the training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify current healthcare trends impacting their role
  • Identify the difference between physical health and behavioral health culture
  • Describe strategies to build strong partnerships with primary care providers
  • List strategies to help prepare people for primary care appointments and to increase self-management
