Healthcare practice is increasingly understood as a complex system of relationships that are key to the safe, high quality, accessible patient-centered care we need and want. In this workshop, we’ll explore how the complexity of these relationships impacts treatment planning and clinical decision-making. Several alternative models for framing and supporting interdisciplinary practice will be presented. Participants will have the opportunity to experience and practice innovative methods for facilitating collaborative conversations among diverse professionals.
The workshop will be facilitated by Jane Mahoney, PhD, RN, PMHCNS-BC, the director of Nursing Practice & Research at The Menninger Clinic. Her research has been published in scholarly journals such as the Journal of Professional Nursing and Perspectives in Psychiatric Care. In addition to her position at Menninger, she is assistant professor at the Menninger Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine and adjunct assistant professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, School of Nursing.
