The healthcare industry is becoming increasingly vulnerable to technology and security risk. The widespread adoption of electronic health records (EHR) combined with frequent regulatory reform is creating rapid change in the industry. An increased network of data connectivity, while designed to improve the delivery of patient care, is also creating opportunity for hackers and others to take advantage of tremendously valuable medical information. Cyber security is fast becoming a critical component of healthcare data exchange and management. As major security breaches continue to top the news; governments and regulatory organizations are responding with new regulations, increased oversight, and stiffer penalties. Increased demand for mobility, along with a move to link a wide variety of systems to IT infrastructure, adds to the overall risk. As a result, healthcare cyber security has grown from a component of security to a category in and of itself. 4Medapproved in cooperation with Kardon Compliance has developed a certification path for security professionals to inform their awareness of this critical area of data protection and achieve proficiency in Cyber security management and execution in the workplace.

While there are a number of reasons for individuals to experience poor outcomes in treatment, there are occasions when the failure to complete part or all of treatment results from something done by the professionals overseeing treatment and not the client. When the client is not responsible for a treatment failure, they may view that as a grievance against their provider. Grievances are defined as written complaints by a client stating that a facility, program, or provider wrongly denied them, reduced, or terminated services. Grievance procedures can help both providers and clients navigate treatment failures. When done correctly, grievance procedures are a win-win for both service providers and the community that they serve. This overview of patient/client grievances will take an in-depth look at client rights and how they are connected to the grievance process in both healthcare and behavioral health settings. The overview will also explore situations where clients would file a grievance before discussing the application and appeals process.

One of the central concepts of mental health, health care, social work, and substance abuse treatment is the therapeutic relationship. The therapeutic relationship provides the basis for successful treatment, and it is guided by the ethical guidelines identified in each specialty of behavioral health. Therapeutic boundaries and conflicts of interest typically arise together during treatment, and both can strongly impact the success of therapy. This overview of therapeutic conflicts of interest explores these ethical areas and how boundary violations can damage the therapeutic relationship. Included in this overview are examples of conflicts of interest and boundary violations, as well as how to avoid them.

Crisis intervention is a currently evolving field as we face an increase of workplace violence and aggression as well as societal changes. Professionals working with people on a regular basis will experience conflict at some point. For those working in medical or behavioral health settings, it is also likely that a crisis on a small or potentially larger scale will be experienced at some point. Being prepared to address conflict and crisis as a clinician as well as a professional working in non-clinical settings is a necessity. Therefore, it is important to know how to handle conflict effectively to prevent escalation as well as what to do when a situation has resulted in a crisis. This course will discuss what constitutes a crisis and explore different techniques and strategies to intervene in a crisis, including de-escalation techniques.

In an effort to improve patient outcomes, hospitals, and health care centers around the country have implemented quality improvement measures to increase care coordination, patient safety, and preventive health services. The efforts of health care centers to implement quality improvement measures have been found to result not only in better care for at-risk populations but also to enhance patient experiences throughout their care. Despite these efforts to improve patient experiences, critical incidents continue to be a significant occurrence in the nursing and medical field. This course will provide an overview of critical incident reporting, discussing the circumstances when incident reports should be filled out. This course will also discuss the necessity of filling out critical incident reports and barriers to compliance. Lastly, new methods to critical incident reporting which may improve its effectiveness will be discussed.

Both Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders can be diagnosed in childhood or adulthood. There are many different types of anxiety disorders, depending on the type of object or situation that provokes the excessive or inappropriate response. Like Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders can also have a pervasive negative impact on the quality of life. While we have all experienced some aspect of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive symptoms, these disorders concern symptoms that dominate the person’s behavior to such an extent that they cause significant distress and/or interfere with major areas of functioning. This course will discuss both Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders, their symptoms, diagnoses included, and major features of each diagnosis.

An entire chapter in the DSM-5 is devoted to depressive disorders. Depressive disorders are among the most frequently diagnosed mental disorders that clinicians are likely to encounter in their practice. However, not only the underlying causes and presenting symptoms but the duration and pervasiveness of the illness and degree of impairment vary greatly. All depressive disorders are characterized by the presence of a sad, empty, or irritable mood with accompanying cognitive and somatic changes that can significantly impair level of functioning. What distinguishes one disorder from another is primarily the duration, timing, and presumed etiology. This course will discuss new diagnoses in depressive disorders found in the DSM-5 as well as both descriptions of and distinguishing criteria for different types of depressive disorders.

The decision of the DSM-5 manual authors to present the chapter on Feeding and Eating Disorders immediately following Somatic Symptoms Disorders makes sense since both categories of disorders are predominantly manifested by symptoms that are not just behavioral but physiological. Feeding and eating disorders entail a persistent disturbance in behavior associated with eating, resulting in the altered consumption of and absorption of food, which in turn adversely impacts physical health and/or psychosocial functioning. This course provides an overview of feeding and eating disorders and clarifies diagnostic criteria for all included disorders.
