    The Neuropsychological Profile of ADHD: Treat the Symptoms Not the Disorder. How to Better Diagnose and Help those with ADHD

    This webinar will provide updated insights and better treatment for ADHD based on current research. It is important to understand that roughly 70% of those with ADHD have an additional diagnosis, and many of those individuals with comorbidity have an underlying condition that is solely causing the client to meet criteria for ADHD. As a result, it is important to learn how to identify the underlying symptoms and causes and to not treat the disorder as a category. In this workshop we will discuss different underpinnings of ADHD through imaging studies and areas of the brain that are most impacted in those with ADHD. This understanding will help clinicians and parents better target interventions. We will discuss lower order causes found in the orbitofrontal and subcortical areas, as well as higher order weaknesses such as working memory and mental flexibility.

    How you are Violating HIPAA Every Day

    Covered entities and business associates have very specific requirements under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and Breach Notification Rule. Enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA appears to be constantly changing, not based on new regulations, but guidance and newsletters from the OCR, Office of the Inspector General, Office of National Coordinator and CMS. In addition, OCR adopts many of the publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Without a clear understanding of how to apply the standards in your office, you will most likely be in violation of some aspect of HIPAA every day.

    Powerful Pain Management Strategies: Communication Tools to Successfully Assess Pain and Dramatically Increase Patient Satisfaction

    Overview: This session will provide specific and easy to implement strategies to help ALL clinicians, not just pain management specialists. Pain management is more than "passing meds."

At times, healthcare professionals cannot completely remove all pain. However, even patients experiencing some pain (that is tolerable) can still give high patient satisfaction scores. Pain management is much more than managing the pain; it is also about managing the perceptions. Choosing the right words is as important as choosing the right medications. Why should you Attend: The inability to clearly understand all facets of pain management could lead to disaster on many levels. Improper communication about pain could lead to patient mismanagement and devastating consequences, including serious medical issues and death.

    3-Hour Virtual Seminar - Reporting HIPAA Breaches: Protection and Prevention

    Overview: Everyone in the healthcare industry knows about HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), that has been in effect since 1996. The goal of the legislation was fairly simple - to safeguard our patient health information. The law dictated to entities how to protect health information (PHI), how it can be shared, when it can be shared, and with whom it can be shared. To date, even the best of healthcare organizations struggle with feeling confident that they have all the required areas covered to protect and prevent HIPAA violations from occurring in their organization. It is well documented that by initiating proper training and implementing effective monitoring tools, HIPAA violations can be reduced or more readily identified in the workplace. Often there is not clear communication to employees about "what constitutes a HIPAA breach" and how can this be reported in your organization without "fear of retaliation."

    How People with Depression Think - How to Help

    Overview: Humans are thinking machines and most people have similar thought processes. Most people have reasonable, measured, moderate thoughts. And while there are many variations on this theme, these thoughts occur on a bell curve with most people being in the meaty part of the curve. Those with major depressive disorder (major depression), however, often have very extreme thoughts and their thought processes often exist on the very far ends of the bell curve. This can make understanding how a person with major depression acts very challenging as these actions are driven by thought processes the average person doesn't experience. While these thoughts may seem “crazy” at first, it's important to realize that these thoughts are simply an extreme part of the human experience that do fall along a continuum that is experienced by everyone.
