Aging Well: Addressing Behavioral Health with Older Adults in Primary Care Settings

The number of adults in the United States age 65 and older is expected to exceed 82 million by 2040. Approximately 16 million of these older adults will have a mental health or substance use condition, and they’ll be turning to their primary care providers for care. What does that mean for you? Join this webinar to learn what you need to know and steps you can take to help your team be prepared to meet behavioral health needs of the older adults you serve. Learn how one primary care provider took steps to identify and address behavioral health concerns in older adults, and hear how integrated primary and behavioral health care can guide your patients toward healthy aging.

After this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the complex array of health, behavioral and social issues that should be addressed during clinical encounters with older adults
  • Distinguish the differences between common mental health, substance use and physical health conditions
  • Recognize the steps to develop an integrated behavioral health and primary care workforce that is ready to serve an aging population
  • Identify evidence-based practices and other resources for serving older adults in an integrated manner.

APHA Presentation: Using photovoice to ensure a right to health: Eliciting resident perspectives through the life course to support Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) policies

Title: Using photovoice to ensure a right to health: Eliciting resident perspectives through the life course to support Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) policies

Authors: Semra Aytur, Anna Adachi-Mejia, Emily Dollar, Beth Wheeler, Sara Rainer, Stephanie Kelly, Alyssa Henry, Emily Counts 

Description: The National Prevention Strategy recognizes healthy eating/active living (HEAL) policies as priority areas for preventing chronic disease. The practice of evidence-based public health policy requires understanding the needs, values, and perceptions of community members who will be affected by policies and interventions. We describe how data collected through photovoice, a participatory action research method, can support the development and implementation of HEAL policies. Photovoice integrates participant-initiated photography and facilitated dialogue about perceptions of health. We synthesize data from several photovoice/photo-elicitation projects conducted in New England over the past 5 years pertaining to healthy eating/active living, neighborhood safety, sleep, and adaptive sports participation. Participants ranged in age from pre-adolescent through older adult; they included rural residents, urban refugees, and youth with disabilities. We present lessons learned about how photovoice can facilitate resident empowerment and engagement with respect to multi-sectoral policies and planning processes. These lessons relate to federal policies (e.g., implementation of the National Prevention Strategy, the Individuals with Disabilities Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (ensuring equitable school athletic opportunities for students with disabilities)); state policies (e.g., implementation of the New Hampshire (NH) State Health Improvement Plan and the NH HEAL plan); municipal policies (e.g., joint-use agreements; strategies to promote access to safe parks/recreational spaces); and clinical-community strategies (e.g., enabling primary-care providers to better support patients in achieving physical activity goals). Photovoice can inform our understanding of barriers, enablers, and contextual differences that must be considered when developing/implementing policies to support healthy behaviors.

Title:  Do Incentives Increase Health Behavior Change for Obesity When Integrated Into Community Mental Health Services? A Statewide CMS-funded Demonstration

People with serious mental illness receiving community mental health services in the United States have a 25-30 year shorter life expectancy than the general population, primarily due to elevated rates of cardiovascular disease from nearly twice as much tobacco smoking and nearly double the rate of overweight and obesity.  Although fitness programs for people with mental illness demonstrate promise for some participants in clinical trials, approximately half do not lose significant amounts of weight nor demonstrate improvements in fitness.  Other strategies are needed to address this substantial health disparity.  New Hampshire’s Healthy Choices, Healthy Changes (HCHC) program was created in 2011 in response to Section 4108 of the Affordable Care Act, the Medicaid Incentives for the Prevention of Chronic Diseases program, which funded 10 programs in the US designed to test the effectiveness of providing incentives to Medicaid beneficiaries to encourage adoption of healthy behaviors.  We will describe the equipoise stratified randomized design employed in our evaluation of the HCHC program (offered at all 10 public sector community mental health centers in the state of NH) as well as the use of incentives to encourage engagement in fitness activities.  Baseline characteristics of the large, well-characterized sample (n=1348) of people who joined the HCHC program will be presented, as well as 12-month outcomes of HCHC.  Finally, we will discuss our plans for future use of behavioral economics in the design of interventions to enhance fitness among people with serious mental illness who are at risk of early mortality due to cardiovascular disease risk factors.

The Eighth Annual C. Everett Koop, MD Tobacco Treatment Conference: Tobacco Treatment in the Era of Accountable Care – Pushing Koop’s Vision Forward

Friday, September 23rd, 2016
8:00am - 4:30pm
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH

 




Overview
This conference asks what health systems can do to proactively motivate behavior change in tobacco users. In asking this question, we hope to envision how accountable care systems can proactively reach tobacco users to motivate and incentivize quitting or offer modified risk tobacco products. Presenters will describe programs that proactively contact smokers through telephone and mail and offer monetary incentives to quit. Other researchers will present novel programs examining e-cigarette substitution for smokers unable to quit, in the context of the new FDA regulations for these devices.

Title: “Conducting Tobacco Control and Health Persuasion Research via Social Media and Crowdsourcing Platforms”

Speaker Bio: Sunny Jung Kim (Ph.D., Cornell University) is a health communication scholar by training specialized in persuasive technologies and social psychological mechanisms of behavior change. She is currently a faculty investigator at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (www.c4tbh.org) at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine. Dr. Kim’s research focuses on psychological and behavioral outcomes of technology-mediated health messages and intervention content.  Her funded projects examine the effects of Facebook- and Crowdsourcing-based engagement and social support systems that are designed to promote smoking reduction and cessation.  Her recently published work includes emotion-framing tactics in antismoking campaigns, information processing models of deceptive health advertisements, so called advertorials or naïve advertisements, predictors and mechanisms of technology-based interventions for substance use disorders, and Facebook Psychology.  Dr. Kim’s research endeavors and productivity have been recognized with the Promising Anson Rowe Award for the top student in the Department of Communication at Cornell University, and received Top Paper recognition at a national conference. 

Descriptions: In this meeting, Dr. Kim will present a series of social media- and crowdsource-based experiments and interventions that examined the pathways of behavior change for smoking reduction and cessation. Sunny Kim will present theoretical frameworks, research methods, and intervention outcomes, including psychological reactance processes (boomerang effects) of antismoking ads exposure, health personation strategies, and social support mechanisms on social media. She will also present evidence-based antismoking materials for an antismoking intervention on Facebook, Email, and Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk).  Combined with persuasion strategies, utilizing these technologies was feasible and effective for smoking reduction and cessation interventions with 100% study retention rate.
