Treating Patients with Complex Needs: The Integration of Physical Health and Mental Health in Persons with Disabilities

December 4, 2020

This conference is designed to encourage thoughtful discussion of the latest clinical and research findings related to the care of patients with complex needs. Clinicians will be encouraged to think in a comprehensive way about the wellness of the patients that they serve. We will review the wide spectrum of coping strategies of people who have congenital and acquired disabilities. We will discuss provider dialogues which promote hope and help seeking behavior. We will review how clinicians can learn more about both mental health and disability related resources.

Cross disciplinary resource awareness, the advent of medical homes and innovative strategies to use peer supports are but a few new service models that have promoted recovery for patients with complex needs. In this symposium, we will review barriers that limit the comprehensive care of patients with complicated needs. We will discuss how consumer/academic and community partnerships have prompted helpful discussions that have improved services for patients in our region.

Target Audience

Mental Health Consumers; Mental Health Providers; Medical Physicians; Advanced Practice Providers; Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Medical Students, Dental professionals, Community Members
