ASAM Criteria Skill Building Course
Friday, September 23, 2022 | 8:30am - 5:30pm ET
This 8-hour virtual live course expands on the content discussed within the ASAM Criteria One-Day Foundations course. It is recommended attendees complete the One-Day Foundations course before beginning this course. The course provides an in-depth understanding of developing individualized treatment plans, evaluating initial reviews, and continued stay reviews, progress versus non-progress in treatment, and determining when it is appropriate to initiate transfer or discharge of a patient from treatment.
The ASAM Criteria Skill Building Course is designed to help healthcare professionals develop a holistic understanding of The ASAM Criteria and explore their role in constructing a full range of services for the treatment of individuals with substance use disorders (SUD). The Course builds on the foundational concepts of The ASAM Criteria that will offer practical guidelines to drive objective decision making and ensure fidelity to The ASAM Criteria. Using a practical and case-based approach, participants will explore important considerations in developing individualized treatment plans, evaluating progress versus nonprogress in treatment, and determining when it is appropriate to initiate transfer or discharge of a patient from treatment. Further, the training will provide tools and resources to equip healthcare providers to work effectively in managed care settings and explore how case shaping can drive patients' overall quality of care.
The target audience for this introductory, intermediate, and advanced course include: counselors, social workers, payers, administrators, and other clinical staff.
This course addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Systems Based Practice.
- Examine the guiding principles of the ASAM Criteria and the payer’s role in its system-wide implementation
- Evaluate patient risk ratings across the six dimensions based on imminent danger and immediate needs, as defined in the ASAM Criteria
- Evaluate treatment plans and clinical assessments to determine if the requested level of care is appropriate in accordance with the ASAM Criteria
- Conduct objective, comprehensive clinical case reviews (and re-reviews) based on the ASAM Criteria to drive ongoing evidence-based care
- Implement a collaborative process between treatment providers and payers using common terminology of the ASAM Criteria to ensure patient-centered care
- Examine implementation challenges and develop strategies to provide appropriate treatment for patients with SUDs
