About the Event:
Join us on Wednesday, August 10th at 12:00 PM (ET) for our "Inpatient Care and the Road to Recovery: Retooling station, pitstop, or a wrong turn?" webinar event. Decades of health advocacy, policy, and research has crystalized the need for recovery-oriented care, particularly for those with severe mental health disorders. However, less attention has been paid to role of the inpatient care setting in a recovery-oriented system. This webinar will discuss research and practice related to supporting recovery in inpatient settings, with a focus on learnings from recent nation-wide studies of VA inpatient mental health units and work with clinicians in those settings.
- Learn how recovery-oriented inpatient care is conceptualized in a large health system
- Identify factors that support recovery-oriented care
- Identify ways that outpatient and inpatient staff can better coordinate efforts
