Clinical Supervision: Legal, Ethical, and Risk Management Issues
Clinical Supervision: Legal, Ethical, and Risk Management
Clinical supervision is an increasingly important area in mental health, medicine and the helping professions in general. Formal professional classroom instruction in mental health and social services is typically followed by mandatory hours or even years of supervised clinical placements and, in some cases, even post licensure. It is typically under the tutelage and supervision of an experienced practitioner that professionals, regardless of their discipline, learn the skills necessary to become competent, ethical and effective members of the helping professions. Clinical Supervision will attempt to identify and review many of the common problems and challenges of clinical supervision that occur in mental health and social service settings. Ethical, legal and risk-management issues will be identified and reviewed, along with potential solutions. The roles and responsibilities of the supervisor and supervisee will be examined and techniques to define goals and objectives of supervision reviewed. Common difficulties and specific problem situations that may occur in supervision are reviewed and discussed. This book assists in making distinctions between administrative and clinical supervision, areas of potential overlap or conflict, and potential difficulties with boundary issues. ...

Managing Clinical Risk: A Guide to Effective Practice
Violence directed towards others and violence directed towards oneself cause an immense amount of physical and psychological damage – to the harmed and the harmful person alike, to their families, and to the public at large. Managing clinical risk is an authoritative manual for practitioners working with harmful men, women, and young people, containing up-to-date information and guidance on what to do and how they can assess and manage clinical risk, communicate their concerns about risk, and account for their decisions about risk management to their clients and to the Courts.

Further, it suggests and describes the skills practitioners need to understand and communicate their concerns to all who need to know about them through coverage of interviewing and risk formulation skills. This is a guidebook to effective practice. All its contributors have a record of research, practice, and considered thinking in the ...

Violent Offenders: Appraising and Managing Risk (Law and Public Policy/Psychology and the Social Sciences)
Violent Offenders: Appraising and Managing Risk (Law and
Predicting future violence among criminal offenders is notoriously difficult. In the previous editions of this popular book, the authors argued that community risk management is best done with actuarial assessment. Combining what is known about violence prediction, clinical decision making, and the literature on treatment outcome and program evaluation, they introduced and chronicled the development of their landmark assessment instruments, the Violence Risk Appraisal Guide (VRAG) and Sex Offender Risk Appraisal Guide. These have become go-to resources for forensic psychologists in the trenches today.In this third edition, the authors review the major changes in the risk assessment field, which include a much larger and richer empirical literature, a focus on dynamic risk management among supervised offenders, and commentaries on the use and effectiveness of expert clinical judgment in determining risk. Perhaps most important, they also introduce the VRAG-R, a new actuarial tool that is easier to score than the VRAG and the SORAG while delivering equally accurate results. Written with the authors’ usual clarity and keen insight, this book is a must-read for legal professionals and forensic psychologists, policymakers, and all those working with offender populations who hope to ...

Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk: Guidelines for Clinically Based Risk Management
Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk: Guidelines for Clinically
Patient suicide is an unavoidable occupational hazard of psychiatric practice. Indeed, it is the rare clinician who does not struggle, even agonize, over the complex task of assessing and managing the risk of suicide in patients. Patient suicides account for the greatest number of malpractice suits filed against psychiatrists and for the greatest number of settlements and verdicts covered by professional liability insurers.In this book, written by a clinician for clinicians, Dr. Simon, an established expert in psychiatry and law, offers - A solid, easy-to-understand review of how medical malpractice law applies to patient suicides. He discusses the standards of care physicians must meet, the conditions associated with malpractice liability, and how best to minimize risks of litigation. - Extensive references to peer-reviewed literature on suicide and recent malpractice cases, including those triggered by patient suicides, which give insight into the latest developments in both the scientific community and the courts. - Much-needed practical advice, including advice on working with suicide risk assessments and suicide prevention contracts, on treating suicidal patients in various settings (outpatient, inpatient, collaborative, and emergency), and on coping with issues arising in t...

PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula Supplement (210 Count)
PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula Supplement (210
Completed in 2013, AREDS2 was a 5-year clinical study including thousands of patients, conducted by the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health. The original AREDS and AREDS2 studies showed that taking a supplement with a precise formula of select vitamins and minerals can help reduce the risk of progression in people with moderate to advanced AMD. The AREDS2 study replaced beta-carotene with lutein and zeaxanthin. PreserVision AREDS 2 formula contains the updated formula now recommended by the National Eye Institute. Can a daily multivitamin alone provide the same vision benefits as an AREDS2 formulation? No. The vitamins and minerals tested in the AREDS and AREDS2 studies were provided in much higher doses than what is found in typical multivitamins. Also, it is important to remember that most of the study participants took a daily multivitamin in addition to an AREDS 2 supplement. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail, but causes no pain. In some cases, AMD advances so slowly that people n...

Health Information Systems: Managing Clinical Risk (Health Informatics)
Health Information Systems: Managing Clinical Risk (Health
This is a practical book for health and IT professionals who need to ensure that patient safety is prioritized in the design and implementation of clinical information technology. Healthcare professionals are increasingly reliant on information technology to deliver care and inform their clinical decision making. Health IT provides enormous benefits in efficiency, communication and decision making. However a number of high-profile UK and US studies have concluded that when Health IT is poorly designed or sub-optimally implemented then patient safety can be compromised. Manufacturers and healthcare organizations are increasingly required to demonstrate that their Health IT solutions are proactively assured. Surprisingly the majority of systems are not subject to regulation so there is little in the way of practical guidance as to how risk management can be achieved. The book fills that gap. The author, a doctor and IT professional, harnesses his two decades of experience to characterize the hazards that health technology can introduce. Risk can never be eliminated but by drawing on lessons from other safety-critical industries the book systematically sets out how clinical risk can be strategically controlled. The book proposes the employment of a Safety Case to articulate and just...

Clinical Documentation Guidelines ICD-10 (Simple & Easy): Medicare
Part of the reason for the lag and lack of reimbursement in the modern medical billing and coding world has a large part to do with the inaccuracies in the medical documentation and its relationship to the rules and guidelines of the billing/coding. This book will provide simple, factual, and practical tips for the clinician, rather than the tedious and flooded books that read as another language to the clinician. Because the physician is the foundation of the encompassing field of medicine that employ millions of Americans today, so providing the physician with the best and simple methodologies to adhere to CMS (Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services) guidelines when rather the focus should more importantly be targeted at the patient dependent on his or her best care. Many of today's physicians have been vocal regarding electronic medical record systems. While they absolutely provide an immense gain to the overall productivity, the "side-effect" has resulted in the doctor staring to a computer screen rather than their own patient. In my experience, this has a large part to do with a large gap of information and understanding between the Information Technologist/Software Programmer and the Physician.

Behavioral Emergencies: An Evidence-Based Resource for Evaluating and
In virtually every mental health clinician's career, a situation arises that requires immediate response: A client or patient presents who is suicidal, potentially violent, and/or at risk of being victimized. In such a situation considered a behavioral emergency the clinician may have little or no time to consult resources before responding. In this book, Phillip M. Kleespies and his colleagues provide clinicians with critical, evidence-based approaches for the evaluation and management of behavioral emergencies. This book makes clear the distinction between a behavioral crisis, which is a serious disruption of functioning that does not necessarily imply danger, and a behavioral emergency.

Practical Ethics for Psychologists: A Positive
Guided by the American Psychological Association’s “Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct,” this book illustrates how psychologists can actualize their ethical acumen in their daily work. Truly ethical behavior requires more than simply avoiding action by a disciplinary body. For psychologists, behaving ethically is a positive goal that involves striving to reach our highest ethical ideals. Knapp, VandeCreek, and Fingerhut provide short sketches illustrating the standards that psychologists must follow, and show how psychologists can actualize their personal values and ethical acumen in their daily work. The authors discuss a variety of ethically tricky areas for psychologists, including patient confidentiality, inappropriate relationships with patients, financial issues, informed consent, and forensic and legal issues. Readers will learn how to attend to their emotional well-being, how to use risk-reduction strategies as well as a five-step decision-making model for difficult ethical quandaries, and how to base their professional conduct on overarching ethical values.

Winning With Risk Management (Financial Engineering and Risk
This book develops the notion that companies can succeed on the basis of risk management, much as companies compete on efficiency, costs, labor, location, and other dimensions. The reality of risk and how it impacts companies is that it is much more definite, often catastrophic and looks more like a shock. This is striking, as a difference between firms on risk different than a marginal difference in operating efficiencies, for example. Competing on Risk Management requires a discipline, a commitment to using information and recognizing shocks and then acting upon those to redistribute assets. This book will examine how leading firms that compete on risk have done this and showcase best practices and impacts to the capital structure of firms and their organizational formation.

Snowball in a Blizzard: A Physician's Notes on Uncertainty in Medicine
Snowball in a Blizzard: A Physician's Notes on
There's a running joke among radiologists: finding a tumor in a mammogram is akin to finding a snowball in a blizzard. A bit of medical gallows humor, this simile illustrates the difficulties of finding signals (the snowball) against a background of noise (the blizzard). Doctors are faced with similar difficulties every day when sifting through piles of data from blood tests to X-rays to endless lists of patient symptoms.Diagnoses are often just educated guesses, and prognoses less certain still. There is a significant amount of uncertainty in the daily practice of medicine, resulting in confusion and potentially deadly complications. Dr. Steven Hatch argues that instead of ignoring this uncertainty, we should embrace it. By digging deeply into a number of rancorous controversies, from breast cancer screening to blood pressure management, Hatch shows us how medicine can fail-sometimes spectacularly-when patients and doctors alike place too much faith in modern medical technology. The key to good health might lie in the ability to recognize the hype created by so many medical reports, sense when to push a physician for more testing, or resist a physician's enthusiasm when unnecessary tests or treatments are being offered.Both humbling and empowering, Snowball in a Blizzard lays ba...

Today's practicing physicians tend to feel hemmed in by the pressures to align with other entities imposed upon them through the changing structures in health care. The dilemma is not so much of whether or not to merge in some manner with other entities; rather, it is more about how to negotiate from a position of strength in order to practice medicine under the best possible circumstances. -How do physicians hold a strong place at the bargaining table? What strategies can be embraced in creating alignment with other physicians, and how do you get started? -What are the benefits and challenges of physician alignment outside of a hospital relationship? -What are the alignment options and how does each option fit in with the future of healthcare, i.e. ACOs, CINs, risk-based payer contracts, etc.?

The Human Contribution: Unsafe Acts, Accidents and Heroic Recoveries
The Human Contribution: Unsafe Acts, Accidents and Heroic
This book explores the human contribution to the reliability and resilience of complex, well-defended systems. Usually the human is considered a hazard - a system component whose unsafe acts are implicated in the majority of catastrophic breakdowns. However there is another perspective that has been relatively little studied in its own right - the human as hero, whose adaptations and compensations bring troubled systems back from the brink of disaster time and again. What, if anything, did these situations have in common? Can these human abilities be ’bottled’ and passed on to others? The Human Contribution is vital reading for all professionals in high-consequence environments and for managers of any complex system. The book draws its illustrative material from a wide variety of hazardous domains, with the emphasis on healthcare reflecting the author’s focus on patient safety over the last decade. All students of human factors - however seasoned - will also find it an invaluable and thought-provoking read.

Managing Tic and Habit Disorders: A Cognitive Psychophysiological Treatment Approach with Acceptance Strategies
Managing Tic and Habit Disorders: A Cognitive Psychophysiological
A pioneering guide for the management of tics and habit disorders Managing Tic and Habit Disorders: A Cognitive Psychophysiological Approach with Acceptance Strategies is a complete client and therapist program for dealing with tics and habit disorders. Groundbreaking and evidence-based, it considers tics and habit disorders as part of the same spectrum and focuses on the personal processes that are activated prior to a tic and habit rather than the tic or habit itself. By drawing on acceptance and mindfulness strategies to achieve mental and physical flexibility in preparing action, individuals can release unnecessary tension, expend less effort and ultimately establish control over their tic or habit. The authors explain how to identify the contexts of thoughts, feelings and activities that precede tic or habit onset, understand how self-talk and language can trigger tic onset, and move beyond unhelpful ways of dealing with emotions - particularly in taking thoughts about emotions literally. They also explore how individuals can plan action more smoothly by drawing on existing skills and strengths, and overcome shame by becoming less self-critical and more self-compassionate. They conclude with material on maintaining gains, developing new goals, and creating a more confident a...

Preterm Labour: Managing Risk in Clinical Practice
Preterm Labour: Managing Risk in Clinical
This book was first published in 2005. This volume summarizes advances in the optimal clinical management of preterm labour, using the best available evidence of the time. The contributors (mostly practising clinicians) are all actively involved in research into the mechanisms, aetiology, treatment and associated outcomes of preterm labour. The chapters are based on common clinical scenarios and each provides a comprehensive literature review followed by evidence-based recommendations on appropriate management. A summary of the pathophysiology of parturition is provided, and the obstetric scenarios cover management of threatened preterm labour, management of preterm premature ruptured membranes and management of preterm labour with specific complications (such as intrauterine growth restriction). Other chapters include the epidemiology, prediction and prevention of preterm labour. Anaesthetic and paediatric issues are explored in depth, and there are chapters on the legal and organizational issues surrounding preterm labour.
