This course is offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Related area). Description: The idea of providing health care treatments and insurance coverage according to “medical necessity” determinations seems eminently reasonable. Its obvious ethical thrust is to discourage unnecessary, wasteful or fraudulent practices. As practically implemented, however, “medical necessity” regulations and determinations have proven remarkably controversial and have particularly vexed rehabilitation providers. Medical necessity determinations incur problems as to who should ultimately make them: payors, health providers or the courts. Obviously, whoever controls the definition of medical necessity controls the flow of health care dollars. While ethical theory can offer important insights about our moral obligations, it remains unable to reliably translate its theoretical principles and rules bearing on harms, benefits and justice into informing medical necessity determinations. Thus, resolving disputes over medical necessity have taken a procedural approach that looks to the interpretation of contractual language in insurance policies, often at the bench of an administrative law judge. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Describe some recent history of medical necessity determinations, as that history has played out among insurance companies, health professionals and the courts; • Explain why medical necessity determinations can be vexatious and controversial; • Describe the kinds of conflicts of interest in making medical necessity determinations confronting payors and providers of care • List current methods of resolving conflicts and disputes over medical necessity determinations and their limits. Identify cultural dimensions of outcome studies • Explain how values bearing on success probability and cost affect our interpretation of outcomes • Discuss the role of evidence in interpreting outcome studies

This course has been approved for a maximum of 3 hours or .3 or 3 CEUs. Audience: Physical Therapy, Physical Therapy Assistant, Occupational Therapy, and Occupational Therapy Assistants Description: Emotionally difficult or painful conversations are very common in health care.

This presentation will discuss the architecture of the painful conversation by examining 1) its effect on the professional’s sense of self and especially his or her need to preserve self-esteem, 2) the critical role of feelings and emotions, and 3) the nature and value of empathy. The latter half of the presentation will consist of various strategic and practical recommendations so that emotionally challenging conversations might be conducted artfully. Additionally, content will be presented on numerous communication strategies that build rapport with patients, especially ones whose behavior is causing the health professional to feel disrespected, anxious, or angry. Topics will include the nature of the health professional’s labeling certain patients or family members as “difficult” or impossible; the nature of the health professional’s defenses when the professional is confronted with assaults to his or her self esteem; the need to understand the difficult patient rather than succumbing to the temptation to emotionally react; and numerous “what to say” responses, especially when the communication seems uncomfortable. This presentation does not aim at teaching psychotherapy, but rather simple communication techniques that build rapport. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Relate the painful conversation to their construction of their professional “self”; • Explain how an ability to control one’s feelings can influence the success or failure of an emotionally difficult conversation; • List a number of empathic responses that are useful in conducting difficult conversations. • Explain how their psychological defenses might compromise their rapport with challenging patients; • Describe common characteristics of relationally difficult patients; • List empathic communication strategies that can be extremely helpful in trying situation
