This training focuses on the Daily Living Activities instrument (DLA-20), an assessment that will fulfill a new requirement for service authorization requests for Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) programs, mobile treatment programs, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Programs (PRPs), and Residential Rehabilitation Programs (RRPs). Maryland providers in these programs will be completing this assessment as a result of Maryland’s participation in the Balancing Incentives Program (BIP), a federal program implemented by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS) that provides grants to States to increase access to non-institutional long-term services and supports. Please note that submission of the assessment will be required for authorization.
These training sessions will be provided free of charge by the Behavioral Health Administration through the University of Maryland’s Training Center and Evidence-Based Practice Center. It is open ONLY to staff from ACT, PRP, RRP and mobile treatment programs. CEUs and Certificates of Attendance will be provided. Registration will be open until one week prior to the training session.
Training will begin promptly, so please arrive early to allow time for sign-in.
