Practical Tools for Behavioral Health Staff Supporting the Medical Care of People with Serious Mental Illness
July 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This webinar will focus specifically on the role and tasks of the case manager [or navigator, or community health worker] who are so crucial to the process of supporting medical care in the SMI population. There is a need for good tools and information about the illnesses that can be addressed to improve the mortality gap in those SMI, and about activities to support better health and medical care in our clientele. We will discuss the illnesses that create the most morbidity and mortality in those with SMI, then review a number of tools created for case managers to support their function in improving health outcomes.
