Training & Technical Assistance: Examples

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational Interviewing was developed as a counseling/communication method to help move clients struggling with behavior change along the stages of change. Motivational interviewing is designed to help staff who will see the same client over time work on their behavior change. This one and a half-day workshop involves didactic presentations, large group discussions, small group dialogs, video demonstrations, and skill-building activities to provide participants with an introduction to the fundamentals of motivational interviewing.

By the end of the motivational interviewing (MI) training workshop, participants will be able to: List the four MI processes | Describe the relationship between MI principles and basic counseling skills (OARS), and | Demonstrate basic application of MI skills.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

As the opioid crisis continues, healthcare organizations need to position themselves to effectively handle the resulting issues. JSI consultants have received the IT MATTTRs2 training program so they can deliver training to practices, giving them the knowledge and tools to adopt a comprehensive Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, effectively combating the opioid epidemic. IT MATTTRs2 is a Colorado statewide program funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that give incentives to providers to obtain their DEA X waiver required to prescribe MAT.

Payment Reform

JSI was chosen by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to work in collaboration with the MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation at Kaiser Permanente (MacColl), and the Center for Care Innovations (CCI) to launch The Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net, a national collaborative that aims to inspire innovation and change in value-based care and payment, both through policy and practice. This partnership combines strengths in policy and value-based payment in the safety net, delivery system transformation in ambulatory care settings, and sustainable change in organizations.

The Delta Center will provide technical assistance to primary care and behavioral health state associations to advance value-based payment and care.This multi-pronged approach will build the knowledge, resources, and relationships of state and national organizations to shape and respond to policy change and opportunities in the safety net.

Leadership Development

The Leadership Development Program can be tailored to different audiences spanning from emerging leaders to executive leaders, and is divided into the 3 Cs: Consciousness, Competence, and Commitment. The Consciousness segment focuses on the participant’s self-discovery to help them alter or expand their own conception of who they are and what is possible for them. Competence refers to the development of specific knowledge and skills, including: Interpersonal and Strategic Communication | Conflict Management | Leading Teams | Systems Thinking | Strategic Thinking | Change Leadership, and | Relationship Building. The Commitment portion will help participants develop their own leadership learning plan to address whatever additional personal development or skill development they believe will be necessary for them as they continue their leadership journey. Examples of key modules include: Time Management | Project Management, and | Emotional Intelligence and Resilience.

Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH)

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a primary care delivery model in which the provision of high-quality care is adjusted and coordinated to meet the different medical needs of patients. As patient-centered models and PCMH recognition becomes more mainstream, JSI is at the forefront of assisting providers to transform into these models.

In order to receive the designation as a PCMH, a primary care practice must go through the phases of: Assessment, Training, and Implementation. JSI has assisted many provider practices in achieving Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) designation through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) and the Joint Commission (TJC), advancing their recognition level, or updating their recognition to more current standards. JSI also recognizes the value in health centers working toward the new PCMH Distinction in Behavioral Health Integration recognition from NCQA and has extensive experience in assisting with behavioral health integration in primary care practices.

These are only a few examples of the curricula that JSI has developed and is by no means an exhaustive list. JSI provides many other training sessions and technical assistance that can be tailored to your needs and schedule. These can range from a one-day training to others lasting up to eight months.
