Internal Behavioral Health Consultation Services: Ethical Standards for a New Environment of Service Delivery

Arlington, VA US
May 6, 2014


 

IBHC Sustainment Training: May 2014


Date/Time:  May 6, 2014; 2-3:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Upholding the highest ethical standards is a solemn and vital professional responsibility for any behavioral health provider.  The recent release of Department of Defense Instruction 6490.15 mandated the integration of behavioral health personnel as part of the Patient-Centered Medical Home primary care model of team-based services. This led to the inclusion of behavioral health providers as part of the primary care health care delivery team.  In this role, internal behavioral health consultants face unique situations in which applying professional ethical standards may conflict with the general ethical principles of beneficence and nonmaleficence and fidelity and responsibility. This webinar will address common areas of concern to include 1) competence [scope of practice], 2) multiple relationships [consultation work when a team member is the identified patient], and 3) confidentiality.  Various situations and methods will be reviewed to enable informed ethical decisions.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss responsibilities regarding the standard of competence as applicable to primary care behavioral health service delivery
  • Identify and evaluate important items for consideration in determining if treating a coworker is ethical
  • Analyze confidentiality and informed consent issues to consider when treating a coworker
  • Relate how the Four Box Method is used to inform ethical decision making
