National Health Reform is now considered inevitable, and many mental health practitioners are expecting this will rejuvenate their declining practices. Be aware, however, there will be strict standards on what conditions and interventions will be covered, and the list of what will be expected and what will likely be eliminated may shock you. Be prepared, tailor your practice appropriately now, and you will prosper.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe what training and attitude changes are necessary to implement necessary changes in practice.
  2. To describe two methods available for implementation of innovation.
