The model of the all-knowing clinician and the passive patient is coming to an end, and it’s being replaced by the Recovery Movement. As the mental health community shifts to a more patient-empowered model, clinicians are finding new ways to engage clients to improve service and outcomes.
In this whitepaper, Dennis Morrison, PhD., chief clinical officer at Netsmart, and Roy Starks, M.A., vice president of the Mental Health Center of Denver, explore this shift in priorities. They offer a fascinating look at the benefits of consumer engagement in healthcare, as well as the fine line behavioral healthcare providers must walk between empowering their patients and guiding them through effective treatment plans.
The whitepaper also includes details on the strategies and tactics the Mental Health Center of Denver has successfully employed to increase patient engagement and satisfaction, as well as improve outcomes.
