Integrated Case Management Workshop
Fri, May 12, 2017, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM PDT
Please join us for a workshop on Integrated Case Management on Friday, May 12 (10-3) at the Grand Forks Seniors Centre. This workshop is hosted by the Child & Youth Mental Health & Substance Use – Boundary Local Action Team and is an opportunity to learn about and practice Integrated Case Management as a model of collaborative care for children, youth and families struggling with mental health and substance use issues.
Integrated Case Management (ICM) has been used by human service and education agencies in the Boundary as a standard of practice for over twenty years. Initially pioneered by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, the Boundary retooled the model to fit the differences inherent in a rural setting that relies heavily on collaboration. This model employs a strengths based approached to designing and coordinating a services in partnership with children, youth and their caregivers.
The morning will focus on the following:
- Values, tenants and structure of collaborative care in the Boundary
- Engaging children, youth and families
- Gathering care and service providers
- Potential pitfalls
- Management of meeting and minutes
In the afternoon, participants will break into small working groups to examine case examples and explore how ICM looks in relation to practice. This will allow participants to identify structural strengths and potential partnerships in community for supporting children, youth and families within a collaborative care framework.
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in providing collaborative care for children, youth and their caregivers.
Lunch is included. This workshop is free.
