Although effective treatments have made HIV infection a manageable chronic disease, many people living with HIV also present co-occurring mental disorders, and addictions. Medication adherence and other health behavior challenges can complicate treatment, highlighting the need for a skilled workforce (psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, substance abuse counselors, and other front line providers) that can work collaboratively with health care and public-health professionals to respond to the psychosocial challenges that accompany having or being at risk for HIV.
This webinar will highlight the latest in approaches to HIV prevention, care and treatment and provide a case example of how providers of medical and behavioral health can work together to improve outcomes for people living with HIV.
Learning Objectives:
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to
  1. Understand the latest medical approaches to HIV testing, and treatment and their impact on mental health and well-being.
  2. Explain the link between biomedical aspects of HIV with mental health, well-being and chronic disease management.
  3. Identify the role mental health care provider’s play in linking people living with HIV/AIDS into care, and supporting adherence to medical regimens.

07/08/14: Transitioning to DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM (SAMHSA webinar)

SAMHSA

 

Free Webinar and Continuing Medical Education

Transitioning to DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 | 3-4:30 p.m. Eastern Time

The Fifth Edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), developed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is the compendium of mental disorder criteria and diagnostic codes used by clinicians in the U.S. health care system. Since its release in May 2013, clinicians and outside organizations have expressed to the APA and SAMHSA a need to know more about DSM-5’s approach to diagnostic coding.

This knowledge is critical, as International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes are reported to insurance companies for the purposes of providing reimbursement for clinical services. Clinicians need to understand and appropriately use DSM-5 codes in order to avoid barriers to or delays in treatment. This program will help clinicians to better understand the coding changes in DSM-5; how DSM-5’s approach is similar to and differs from that in DSM-IV; the rationale behind the revisions; and specific clinical implications.

By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the ways in which the ICD coding structure of DSM-5 compares to that of DSM-IV.
  • Identify the different uses of DSM-5’s ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes.
  • Describe specific coding corrections that have occurred post-publication that clinicians should implement in patient care.

Only the first 1,000 registrants will be able to take part in the webinar. Note that the webinar will be viewable atwww.dsm5.org after July 8.
