130815| MentorHealth| Serious Legal & HIPAA Consequences of Improper EMR-EHR Usage|

Date: Tuesday December 11, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST


Overview:

I will address specific litigated cases I have worked where the covered entity had to pay out
nasty fines to the Federal government and high settlements to patients affected by
inappropriate usage of the EMR system - I will also address situations where the covered
entity DID NOT receive any fines or judgements (even in the event of a breach or malicious
actions) due to the fact they were using the systems in a "compliant manner" I will also be
addressing how practice managers (or compliance offers) need to understand how to properly
utilize the EMR system for HIPAA compliance.

I will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for
2017 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and
business associates these days. I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of
experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA
cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful
disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those
risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Why should you Attend:

EMR systems may be "HIPAA Compliant" out of the box but if not utilized properly they are NOT
compliant
Are you using your EMR system the way it should be utilized for HIPAA Compliance?
Are you aware there are serious legal consequences for improper usage of EMR systems?
An analogy would be, General Motors makes a car with a 5-star safety rating but if you don't
fasten the seatbelt, the car isn't very safe anymore
Omnibus has changed the HIPAA landscape for good
This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on
Protect your practice or business
These day's trial attorney's pose a higher risk than the Federal government
State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies
What factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit? are you doing these things?
EMR system usage plays a HUGE role in HIPAA enforcement as well as court litigation against
the practice

Areas Covered in the Session:
Proper Use of the EMR
Real Scenarios of Litigation due to Improper Usage of EMR
Things to Remember when Using the EMR
Training Staff on EMR Usage

130814| MentorHealth| Business Associates - What to Expect in 2019 - 5 Steps to HIPAA Compliance|

Date: Wednesday December 12, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

This webinar for HIPAA Business Associates will cover HIPAA law that applies to Business
Associates and the top HIPAA Compliance Priorities, broken into 5 steps needed for full HIPAA
compliance:

The HIPAA Compliance Official Who's in charge? - All HIPAA compliance responsibility rests
squarely with top management. But authority to develop and implement a HIPAA compliance
program is delegated to one or more Business Associate HIPAA Compliance Official(s). They must
do more than just develop and implement Security Rule Policies and Procedures. Business
Associate HIPAA Compliance Official's duties are a roadmap to develop, implement and maintain
a Business Associate's HIPAA Compliance Program
Risk Analysis and Risk Management - the basis of HIPAA Compliance broken down into its 3 basic
parts and explained step-by-step
Understand and implement the interconnected Business Associate Security Rule and Privacy Rule
Compliance responsibilities with appropriate Policies and Procedures
Learn how to investigate, assess and document Potential Breaches and if necessary, make
notifications required by the Breach Notification Rule
Understand Business Associate Agreements with a Covered Entity and a Subcontractor Business
Associate. Write your own Business Associate Agreement,recognize red flags, and avoid making
your Subcontractor Business Associate your agent under the Federal Common Law of Agency by
mistake

Why should you Attend: If you are a Business Associate you must know exactly what you have to
do to comply with HIPAA. But you have two hurdles.

First, your HIPAA responsibilities are new so you don't have the HIPAA compliance background
and experience of your customers - Covered Entities.

Second, you are liable for compliance with the entire HIPAA Security Rule - and parts of the
HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notification Rules. But at first, second and third glance it is
difficult to find your Privacy and Breach Notification Rule obligations and no one is in
charge! HIPAA only directs you to identify a Security Official to develop and implement
Security Rule Policies and Procedures. It gives you no direction at all about developing Your
Privacy and Breach Notification Rule compliance program.

This session will explain Business Associate HIPAA compliance responsibilities in 5 steps.
There is a secret to Business Associate HIPAA compliance. The secret is - HIPAA Rules are easy
to follow, step-by-step - when you know the steps.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Management Responsibility
Guide to Risk Analysis - Risk Management
Security Rule and Privacy Rule are interconnected - Policies Required for Both
How to Deal with Potential Breaches
Understand the Business Associate Agreement (BAA) and the Subcontractor BAA

Who Will Benefit:

130813| MentorHealth| Contracting with Physician Leaders An Examination of Medical Director Arrangements and other Administrative Contracts|

Date: Wednesday December 12, 2018 Time: 11:00 AM PST | 02:00 PM EST

Overview:

Several of the recent Stark Law cases and settlements have highlighted the risks of entering
into contracts for physician leadership.

In this webinar, Mr. Wolfe will discuss why these contracts must satisfy a Stark Law
exception, and why compensation paid to physician leaders must be at fair market value and on
terms that are commercial reasonable. He will also discuss key features of effective and
defensible contracts.

The webinar will include practical strategies that health care executives can use to enhance
the defensibility of these arrangements, including potential features of an organizational
policy.

Why should you Attend: In recent years, the health care industry has seen unprecedented
engagement of physicians leaders to serve as medical directors and in other administrative
roles. With increasing emphasis on clinical quality and value this trend is only expected to
accelerate.

It's critical for health care leaders to understand the rules surrounding these agreements so
they can spot and address issues to help mitigate risk. Many health care organizations are
developing policies that outline the structures, rates of compensation and documentation that
are required when entering into administrative contracts.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Provide a Legal and Regulatory Overview (e.g., Stark, Anti-Kickback, etc.)
Examine Critical Components of Compliant Arrangements
Discuss Best Practices for Drafting Contracts and the Related Financial Terms
Review Processes for Documenting Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness

130811| MentorHealth| The Neuropsychological Profile of ADHD: Treat the Symptoms Not the Disorder. How to Better Diagnose and Help those with ADHD|

Date: Monday December 10, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

This webinar will provide updated insights and better treatment for ADHD based on current
research. It is important to understand that roughly 70% of those with ADHD have an additional
diagnosis, and many of those individuals with comorbidity have an underlying condition that is
solely causing the client to meet criteria for ADHD.

As a result, it is important to learn how to identify the underlying symptoms and causes and
to not treat the disorder as a category. In this workshop we will discuss different
underpinnings of ADHD through imaging studies and areas of the brain that are most impacted in
those with ADHD. This understanding will help clinicians and parents better target
interventions.

We will discuss lower order causes found in the orbitofrontal and subcortical areas, as well
as higher order weaknesses such as working memory and mental flexibility. We will discuss the
DSM-5 criteria for ADHD and clinical profiles in the literature including those with the
predominantly inattentive subtype.

Finally, intervention ideas that target the underlying symptoms/causes will be discussed and
how to determine which type of services are needed in school (504 plan versus Individual
Education Plan).

Why should you Attend: Why are they not responding to stimulants? ADHD is deceptively
difficult to treat because the disorder has many different causes and a high comorbidity with
other disorders such as anxiety, ODD, and depression. Attend this workshop and learn about the
cognitive and behavioral underpinnings of ADHD with an emphasis on treating the symptoms and
not the disorder.

Why? Because ADHD is too heterogeneous to treat as a disorder in many cases.By focusing on the
clinical symptoms, strategies are more targeted and better address the underlying cause of the
diagnosis. Further, many with ADHD have a separate disorder that is responsible for the client
meeting criteria for ADHD in the first place. By attending this workshop, you will better
understand the nature of ADHD and a more targeted approach to treatment!

Areas Covered in the Session:

Intro: How is ADHD Characterized Based on the DSM-5
Imaging Studies: Is the ADHD Brain Different?
Behavioral Symptoms of ADHD and Ways of Measuring them
Cognitive Symptoms of ADHD and Ways of Measuring them
Which Medications Work the Best?
Services: 504 Plan or IEP?

130810| MentorHealth| Best Practice When Assessing Social Communication with High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders|

Date: Friday December 7, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

This presentation will offer participants a variety of tools to help evaluate the social-
pragmatic communicative features of High Functioning Autism Spectrum to acquire more relevant
information with which to develop intervention strategies.

Why should you Attend: It is well known that individuals with High Functioning Autism Spectrum
have deficits in social-communication skills. Engaging in one-sided conversational topics that
hold little interest to others, a tendency towards hyper-literalism, an inability to
understand idiomatic and abstract language are often present. Vocal tone may be flat and
monotonous or may come across as condescending or outright oppositional. Add to this problem,
the individual may have poor facial expressions which further serve to negatively impact how
others perceive them socially.

Reading nonverbal language is often a weak skill for individuals with High Functioning Autism
Spectrum. What many people fail to realize is how significant a role this skill plays in
social situations. When was the last time you told someone you didn't want to listen to their
conversation anymore? Did you ever state to someone you find his/her topic interesting? Likely
you did not. Instead people use subtle body movements and facial expressions to signal
approval and disapproval. We "read"these messages and alter our social interaction
accordingly.

But what happens if you fail to attend to these messages. People will continue to use these
techniques without success and eventually become overwhelmed and frustrated. That's when
problems really happen because they likely will express their extreme displease to the
individual and/or avoid them at all costs.

This behavior is seen by the offender as "out of the blue"and completely unwarranted. Is it
any wonder why anxiety is a major concern? Eventually the individual may view those around him
with extreme suspicion and become paranoid. After all, he thinks he's communicating in the
same manner as everyone else. That's why when it comes to social skills, it doesn't matter
what he thinks about himself, it's what others think of him that is more important. In simple
terms, if people don't like him, they will avoid him.

Diagnosticians are frequently called upon to address these issues both in terms of diagnostics
and goal development. However, few are adequately prepared to handle the unique idiosyncrasies
seen in this population. As a result, they may use standardized tools that are not designed to
assess the type of deficits seen in this population.

Diagnosticians have a responsibility to choose tests that are valid for the purpose in which
they are being used. Unfortunately, in the case of High Functioning Autism Spectrum, current
standardized tests for communication are not sensitive enough to provide the diagnostician
with appropriate information.

They assess the individual's cognitive social skills, not the functional social skills. Many
individuals know how to pass these tests. Inadequate and unobtainable social-pragmatic goals
are then developed based on these findings. Ultimately this negatively impacts effective
service delivery. We presume passing the test implies they know how to implement the skills.
This presumption is often faulty.

Areas Covered in the Session:

How to Recognize and Describe Social-Pragmatic Deficits in High Functioning Autism
Limitations of Standardized Tools when Assessing Social-Pragmatic Communication
Factors to Consider when Choosing Diagnostic Instruments
How to Extrapolate Meaningful Data From Social-Pragmatic Communication
How to write Meaningful Operant Goals for Social-Pragmatic Communication

Who Will Benefit:
Anyone who is charged with Diagnosing and Treating Individuals with High-Functioning Autism

Speaker Profile
Timothy P. Kowalski, M.A.,C.C.C. is a licensed speech-language pathologist specializing in
social-pragmatic communication deficits and an internationally known expert on Asperger

130809| MentorHealth| How to use the Environment to Address Arousal & Hyperactivity|

Date: Friday December 7, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

Our environments are becoming increasingly complex and stimulating. We take in more visual and
auditory information than ever before . With current research advances in neurology, there is
new evidence of the neurological impact such stimulation imposes. What is in our environment
greatly affects our function. Our sensory systems take information in to use it to produce
behavior. Even those with out diagnoses can be challenged by an over stimulating environment.

Furthermore, conditions such as Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing disorders pose even more
complexities and call for enhanced intervention approaches.This course reviews the connection
of context and environment to function. In order for an accurate review,it will include
psychological and neurological overviews.

The overviews allow the attendees to make connections and better understand the
neuroanatomical changes, alterations to neuronal rhythmic oscillations, and functional
presentations of the nervous system based on the context and environment. A brief review of
treatment approaches will include sensory work through the nine neurological senses,
Mindfulness,and Rhythm therapy. Following this session, participants will be able to describe
the related neurological dysfunction based on external sensory stimuli, the role of the nine
senses,define and describe neuronal oscillations and their connection to function, and relate
current research.

Despite your profession, practitioners can all agree. Working with our children today is
becoming more challenging. The rate of diagnoses such as mental disorders and conditions such
as Complex Trauma, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety disorder, Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing
Disorders is ever growing. Join Dr. Varleisha Gibbs, PhD, OTR/L, renowned occupational
therapist, self-regulation expert, and author for this full day workshop and learn clinically
proven neurological approach of Contextual Sensory Integration (CSI) to addressing pediatric
disorders in children and adolescence. While strategies directly address specific diagnoses
covered include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety, Autism, Sensory
Processing Disorder, and ADHD CSI is a global approach for all.

Knowing the underlying brain connections will help you better select and develop appropriate
interventions for challenging behaviors, such as hyper-activity, hypo-activity,
aggressiveness, self-stimulatory behaviors, and inattentiveness. In this course, you will gain
the essential knowledge of the underlying neuroanatomical connections to help you better
select and develop appropriate interventions for children who display mental health
challenges. The workshop also defines the "TEST" behaviors of tantrums, eating, sleeping, and
toileting. Interventions for those behaviors assist practitioners in further enhancing their
skills and success in treating such challenging presentations. Attendees gain knowledge on the
neurological connection to the various sensory strategies, current treatment techniques,
including, sensory friendly environments, activation of the Vagus nerve, music and movement,
and positioning. Active learning strategies will include a virtual brain dissection with video
wet labs and video case examples.

Attendees will walk away with neurologically tailored strategies, cutting-edge treatment
techniques, and sensory equipment strategies based on the CSI Approach. Additional strategies
to include, mindfulness, music and movement, and positioning techniques. They will learn the
underlying neurological components to connect the brain to clinical practice through briefly
reviewing neuroanatomy via brain dissection video wet labs, neurological pathways, function,
Autonomic Nervous System and behavioral presentations connected to stress, fear, and anxiety,
and video examples of children to link content reviewed to symptoms and appropriate
intervention. Session topics will also include activating the Vagus nerve and the nervous
system for regulation; how primitive reflexes connect to seating position, incorporating Dr.
Gibb's Self Regulation and Mindfulness approach and CSI approach to treatment intervention and
caregiver training.

Lastly, attending this webinar will allow for the application of knowledge gained through the
use of video case studies to examine the evaluation process, treatment planning, goal
development, and re-assessment of children displaying challenging social, eating, and sleeping
behaviors. Whether you are an new practitioner, experienced, mental health professional, or
clinical rehabilitation therapists, Dr. Gibb's makes it easy to understand and easy to
implement. You will leave invigorated by revelations exposed and ready to get to work
following your day with Dr. Gibbs' and this igniting presentation!

Why should you Attend: Currently, teachers, therapists, and parents find themselves challenged
with hyperactivity and other complex behaviors by children. Weather in the classroom or at
home, children's arousal levels can impact our lives immensely. Working with conditions such
as Complex Trauma, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing
Disorders can be a huge undertaking even for the experienced teacher or practitioner. In this
course, you will gain the essential knowledge of the impact of the context and environment on
function.

Additionally, it will review the underlying nervous system connections to help you better
select and develop appropriate adaptations to the environment and tasks for children who
display behavioral challenges, such as hyperactivity, aggressiveness, self-stimulatory, and
inattentiveness.

Attendees will walk away with various sensory strategies, current treatment techniques,
including activation of the Vagus nerve, music activities, environmental lighting, and
positioning strategies. Active learning strategies will include video case examples. Attendees
leave with newfound confidence following this invigorating webinar!

130808| MentorHealth| Get Ready for Increased Data Protection in the EU and US, Lets Navigate GDPR|

Date: Thursday December 6, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection
and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It
has been called the most comprehensive data protection law to date. For US business that do
work with the EU, welcome to HIPAA for business data privacy protection.

Known as GDPR, this law has vague guidelines for compliance with tough breach notification
requirements and heavy fines. Join us to discuss the measures required to comply with this and
other national and international regulations. First, we will discuss the data collected by an
organization, is it really necessary for business requirements or just the way we've always
done things. A detailed and documented analysis needs to take place so that you only collect
and store only the information required to accomplish your business purposes. Next up is
vendor management. Know your vendors, know your vendors security.

You are the responsible party under GDPR to ensure your vendors are compliant. The majority of
our discussion will address reasonable and appropriate security based on the level of risk for
your business. Starting with a comprehensive risk analysis we will discuss how to determine
where your security controls are adequate and where you need additional protection. For the
most part monitored systems is going to be key to compliance. Intrusion detection, review of
audit logs, good security practices.

Basically a good security framework using appropriate controls and monitoring. Compliance is
much more that a checklist, so be aware of compliance by design, your organization will need
comprehensive implementation of security controls after a through review of all systems and
dangers to your data, based on the type of data, methods of storage and transmission and who
you are using to aid you in your organization's goals.

Why should you Attend: Doing business in the EU? GDPR is the most comprehensive data
protection laws on the planet. There are massive fines for violation, especially for companies
that do not have Security Plans and implementation of he proper security measures in place.
Even if you do not do business in the EU, get a head start on data privacy protections coming
to the US that will be enforced by the Federal Trade Commission.

Data privacy is an important topic and most businesses are not sure if their IT company is
trying to make more profit or recommending security measures that are required. We will go
over what is appropriate and reasonable in a manner that will allow you to apply it to your
small, medium or large business. We will discuss vendor management and due diligence required
to reduce your risks under GDPR.

GDPR is said to have very vague requirements, but security frameworks can be implemented to
protect your business based on sound security practices. Attend our webinar to learn more
about how you can protect the privacy of your customers.

Areas Covered in the Session:

GDPR
Who is Covered by these Regulations
Basic Security Measures
Required Risk Analysis
Vendor Management
Data Minimization
Security Programs
Breach Response Requirements
Required Due Diligence

Who Will Benefit:
CEOs
IT Specialists

130807| MentorHealth| MIPS Risk Assessment - What,How,Why|

Date: Thursday December 6, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview:

Each year a HIPAA risk assessment is required by your practice. It doesn't matter if you are
not seeking MIPS or Meaningful Use money the HIPAA regulations require an annual risk
assessment anyway. MIPS and Meaningful Use simply tie your reimbursement money to
accomplishing this already required risk assessment, as they are well aware you will probably
ignore this requirement otherwise.

The risk assessment should not be "pencil whipped"; attorneys are licking their chops for a
chance to come after medical offices that don't have their "HIPAA House" in order. What may
start as an innocent mistake can quickly escalate to a huge settlement once an attorney gets
involved and begins digging into the level of HIPAA compliance at your office.

The other threat is the CMS hired guns who look back over many years seeking areas where you
may have dropped the HIPAA ball, all in an attempt to claw back money that has been paid to
you. The risk assessment may feel like a big burden, but done correctly it is not a burden but
a solid guideline to getting your practice to function in a more effective way.

Why should you Attend: Whatever the reason: MIPS or Meaningful Use the risk assessment is a
foundational tripwire to you getting your reimbursement check. This risk assessment is a HIPAA
risk assessment and is required every year, just like taxes. Skip it and, 5 years later, you
can get that request for more information or pay back the money they gave you. How much was
that check? $5000? Avoid having to pay back all of that money by doing your risk assessment
each year.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Recent HIPAA Changes
Fines
The Audit Process
New Patient Legal Items
Portable Devices
Ransomware
Business Associates Increase Burden
Breach Notification Process
Paperwork Updates
Risk Factors for Being sued or Audited

Who Will Benefit:

130805| MentorHealth| 2-Hour Virtual Seminar on Physician Employment Agreements, Contractor Agreements & Legally Complaint Compensation Models|

Date: Tuesday December 4, 2018Time: 09:00 AM PST | 12:00 PM EST

Overview:

This lecture will provide an overview of how to read and interpret a typical physician or
health care provider employment or contractor agreement. It is critical that any agreement
that an employee or contractor is required to sign be provided to the employee or contractor
well in advance of the start date with plenty of time and opportunity to review and revise as
needed.

The presenter will begin by outlining the difference between being an employee and a
contractor, and what the ramifications are of each classification, as well as providing a
general overview of other basic business considerations when considering an employment or
contractor position of any kind.

Attendees will learn how to interpret basic agreement terms and learn how to eliminate the
term “boilerplate” and “legalese” from their vocabulary when considering such contracts. Every
single word in a contract is there for a reason, just because the reason is legal compliance
does not mean an employee or contractor should brush off the need to understand those words!

The presenter will provide various alternatives to agreement terms in areas such as
compensation, scope of duties, reimbursement for professional fees and costs, and professional
liability insurance. Additionally, attendees will learn how to interpret differences in terms
that may seem innocuous to the untrained eye but could result in thousands – or tens of
thousands – of dollars in losses to the employee or contractor.

The presenter will also discuss potential termination of the agreement and what terms should
be in all agreements to prepare for potential termination in order to be sure everyone knows
what his or her rights and responsibilities are before there is a breakdown in the
relationship that would result in need to terminate.

After the nuts and bolts of a typical agreement are reviewed, the attendees will be provided
with an overview and description of the Stark and Anti-Kickback laws, why they were
instituted, what they do and do not cover and who they are and are not applicable to. Once the
basic constructs of the laws themselves are reviewed, the presenter will then go over the most
common exceptions to these laws and their application to contractor and employment agreements.
Exceptions include specific scenarios in which the law allows physicians, practices and
providers to participate in activities that may otherwise be deemed prohibited under both
laws.

Finally, attendees should have the basic knowledge and confidence to understand and negotiate
basic agreement terms as well as the knowledge to understand when they should call on help,
such as a qualified healthcare attorney, to negotiate on his or her behalf.

Why should you Attend: Are you currently working pursuant to an employment or contractor
agreement that you signed immediately upon receipt? Did you receive an agreement to sign on
your first day at your current position with no meaningful time to review or consider the
agreement? Too many individuals sign employment and contractor agreements either without
reading them (either due to lack of time or misunderstanding as to enforceability) or, once
having read them, making the incorrect assumption that all terms are “non-negotiable”. More
often than not, the terms are definitely negotiable and, even if they truly are not, a dialog
about what the terms mean and the reasoning behind their inclusion in the agreement can
provide critical insight into the employer’s motivation and practices.

Once the basic terms of an agreement are determined, medical practices, physicians and health
care providers must also be sure that those term are within a legally compliant compensation
model. Health care providers cannot accept payment for referrals, but do you know what the
federal government considers a “payment for a referral”? If you have a contractor agreement
that is not in writing, or is not quite for fair market value, you may be giving/receiving a
kickback. If you enter into an employment agreement where you are getting paid a very large
salary for minimal work, you may be giving/receiving a kickback. When it comes to federal law,
ignorance is not bliss and is certainly not an excuse or a defense when caught in the
crosshairs of the federal Stark or Anti-kickback laws. Educate yourself and protect yourself.

This seminar will provide an overview of what the various “standard” agreement terms really
mean and how to interpret them. Employees and contractors often fail to protect themselves
because they believe that they either cannot or, that the terms of the agreement cannot be
enforced. Far too often physicians and health care providers will not seek the assistance of
health care counsel to review a proposed employment or contractor agreement until it is
already signed and he or she is already in a hopeless situation with no feasible way out.

Areas Covered in the Session:

W2 vs. 1099
Basic Agreement Terms
Duties
Compensation
Professional Liability Insurance
Outside Employment
Termination
Restrictive Covenants
Current & Future Trends in Physician employment
Federal bases for allegations of healthcare fraud
The Federal Stark Law
The Federal Anti-Kickback Law
Common Scenarios that get providers in trouble

Who Will Benefit:
Physicians
PAs/APNs
practice managers
Health care providers
Financial managers/advisors
Compliance officers
Human Resources & Employee managers

130799| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - London - November 2019|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

The course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific "placebo" effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:

  • have HCPC physiotherapy registration
  • have CSP membership
  • be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts
  • give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant).
  • be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration. (see AACP website for safety guidelines)
  • attend all 6 days of the course

130793| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Workplace Investigations - Witnesses Interviews|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
Many employers struggle to gather information during witness interviews in investigations. Many employees for a variety of reasons are reluctant to be involved and can be less than forthcoming. Friends of employees and those accused of an offense are often downright angry and vengeful. In investigations, to meet its employer obligations, it's crucial that interviews are structured to capture and gather all available accurate information, notwithstanding employee emotions that are often running high.

This webinar will help investigators move through what often seems an investigatory maze. Some investigators, unable to gather information, turn to body language to make determinations of credibility. Not only can that approach be fraught with indefensible and challengeable findings, TV shows while entertaining, are not good training for interpreting body language. This webinar will cover ways to assess body language while combining with the facts as presented.

Investigations by their very nature tend to leave at the least some employee relations damage amongst employees. It's important that an employer learn how to take steps to avoid retaliatory behavior towards individuals involved in investigations or making complaints. Additionally there are steps an employer can take to minimize the inevitable gossip and side taking that disrupts business.

Why should you Attend: The assigned investigator in many workplaces is often an already overburdened employee to whom another time consuming project is now assigned, often to their dismay. This investigator may have had little to no training in how to perform investigations. Or they may have had training in the process of investigatory mechanics but never actually performed an investigation. In theory, investigatory interviewing sounds easy but in reality, it's often not.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • When are employees entitled to representation during an investigation?
  • How to prepare and what to do before an interview
  • Organizing your interview so you can ask good questions
  • Strategies for the reluctant witness
  • The angry "hothead". Dangerous or something else?
  • What about tape-recording: Is it a good idea?
  • Body language: Can you tell if a witness is giving false or skewed testimony? Developing behavioral baselines
  • Considering cultural diversity
  • The note taker and their role
  • Taking notes and pacing the interview
  • Starting and ending your interview
  • Educating all parties about retaliation
  • What about witnesses that are not your employee? Tips for customer complaints and joint employment interviews


Who Will Benefit:

  • Anyone who has to do Investigations, Fact Findings, or Solve Employee Relations Problems and Disputes
  • Plant Managers
  • Front Line Managers
  • HR Managers
  • Branch Managers
  • Those with Employee Relations Positions

Instructor:Teri Morning, MBA, MS, SHRM-SCP specializes in solving company “people problems.”

130791| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Employee Handbooks: 2019 Updates|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 Overview: The purposes and the scope of employee handbook policies and the practices are changing and expanding. From a siloed HR activity that creates insular documents concerned primarily with communicating the organizational work rules and benefits, employee handbook policies and practices have evolved into a critical component of an organization-wide management process that maximizes organizations' achievement of business objectives, enhances the value of their human capital, and minimizes legal risk. 

To increase the effectiveness of their employment policies, organizations will have to:

  • Enhance their business, operational, and legal intelligence to ensure they have identified the changing external and internal factors that affect their policies
  • Increase internal stakeholder participation in the handbook development process to obtain greater employee commitment and operational alignment
  • Establish new metrics to assess handbook policy and practices performance and measure the achievement of organization goals
  • Implement internal controls that identify and alert management when employee handbook process failures occur

Thus employee handbooks will increasingly have to ensure that they are aligned with strategic and business objectives, are properly drafted, and are effectively implemented. Additionally they will have to:

  • Enhance the employment brand
  • Play a key role in recruitment and retention
  • Enhance employee relations, employee morale, and productivity
  • Contribute to uniform and consistent application, interpretation, and enforcement of organizational policies and rules
  • Protect the organization against claims of improper employee/supervisor conduct
  • Reduce the organization's exposure to employment related liabilities

From this perspective, employee handbooks will continue to play an important role in communicating with and providing information for employees. 

Why should you Attend: Employee handbooks are a critical tool in providing important information to employees. They describe what employers expect of their employees and what employees can (should) expect from their employers. They provide critical information about employers and their workplaces and how employees are expected to fit in.

Employee handbooks further formalize the mutual expectations of organizations and their employees. In delineating these expectations employee handbooks create opportunities and risks for employers. Handbooks provide organizations with the opportunity to enhance the value of their human capital, make their organizations more competitive, and improve individual and organizational performance. Conversely, handbooks can impede the achievement of business objectives, increase employment related liabilities, and reduce managerial prerogatives by making promises or committing to certain procedural safeguards that the organization did not intend to make. As noted in the recent memorandum from the General Counsel of the NLRB: incorrectly designed employee handbooks can violate the law and having a "chilling effect" on employees' activities.

Thus employee handbooks increasingly provide for employers the opportunity to make their work force more committed and supported of their goals. Unfortunately they also provide the basis for employees' legal action and can significantly reduce employees' commitment to organizational success. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Key employee handbook issues in 2017
  • A review of the NLRB's recent memorandum on employee handbooks
  • How organizations can reduce the gap between policy issuance and effective implementation
  • Review the basics of employee handbook development
  • Discuss the expanding purposes and scope of employee handbooks
  • Learn the dimensions of critical handbook policies
  • Understand the framework of employee handbook audits activities

130789| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Importance of Proper Documentation and Retention|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
Document, document, document. Every employment attorney preaches this word to their clients. Not all documentation, however, is the same. Yes, employment attorneys want you to document - but only if you do it right. Good documentationhelps you win lawsuits. Bad documentation will inevitably help your former employee win his/her lawsuit against your company.

So how do you document so that it will hold up in court? Of course, we don't want to keep documentation around too long - particularly if it is bad documentation. How long does the law require you to keep documents? And, if you get notice of a claim being filed against you, what steps must your organization take to ensure that documentation is not destroyed?

Why should you Attend: You know you were justified in terminating that employee. Unfortunately, your documentation doesn't reflect it, and judges/juries seem to give more credence to documentation than testimony. Don't let poor documentation lose your lawsuit. But would be plaintiffs do have limitation periods to bring lawsuits, and you don't want to keep that documentation around too long? When can you destroy documentation? If you guess wrong, you may be facing one angry judge. Judges are becoming increasingly angry over companies failing to keep documentation relevant to the litigation, and they are showing their anger. Judges are imposing significant sanctions and even default judgments without regard to liability in particularly egregious cases. So when you destroy documentation legally?

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Strategies for Effective Documentation
  • Performance and Disciplinary Documentation Pitfalls
  • Documentation Dangers to Avoid
  • The Importance of Knowing the Difference between Misconduct and Performance Issues
  • What You Should Say in Termination Documents
  • Documenting Performance Improvement Plans and Using Them Effectively
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Performance Evaluations (and why some attorneys are saying don't do them anymore)
  • Why Courts and Agencies Are Reviewing Your Performance Evaluations with Greater Scrutiny
  • Record Retention Requirements under the Law.
  • How to Have an Effective Record Retention Policy
  • How to Work with Your Attorney When Litigation Calls

130785| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Workplace Behavioral Issues: Handling Employee Problems Confidently|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
Problem employees are lurking in every workplace and wherever they are, you can be sure they're costing your organization plenty - in lowered morale, lost opportunities and decreased productivity. In fact, the price can be so high it's foolish to try to overlook or brush aside the problem. Ignoring or mishandling problems can be very costly resulting in lawsuits, employee turnover, and poor morale. If you have an employee who has behavior or attitude problems, you need to take action - now!

Unlike performance issues, which result from a failure to meet goals and/or properly perform tasks, such as when an individual lacks the knowledge, skills or ability to perform the job, or where the work is consistently below standards in terms of quality or productivity, behavioral or conduct-related issues generally result in greater disruption to the work environment. 

Avoiding conflict is often the easiest way to deal with it. It does not, however, make it go away but rather pushes it underground, only to have it resurface in a new form. Keep in mind that conflicts do not resolve themselves, and they rarely disappear without some form of intervention. 

By actively resolving conflict when it occurs, you can create a more positive work environment for everyone. A timely, deliberate approach to navigating these situations and developing the skills to identify and deal with difficult employees will assist you and your organization succeed. 

Why should you Attend: Behavioral issues and conflict in the workplace are inevitable. Whenever you have diverse groups of people working together on a daily basis, conflict will arise. Each employee brings to the workplace a unique set of attitudes, ideals and beliefs that may differ from that of their co-workers. Unresolved conflict affects how well your organization functions. Unresolved conflict often results in loss of profit, productivity, the stifling of creativity, and the creation of barriers to cooperation and collaboration. 

Problematic behavior or conduct usually develops over time. As a Manager or Supervisor, the more proactive you are in dealing with these problems the more likely it is that you will increase your chances for a positive outcome. Conflict and behavioral issues that are avoided or ignored will only fester and grow into resentment. 

Participation in this webinar will provide participants with the necessary tools and information to effectively and confidently handle employee behavioral issues. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Positive v. Negative Outcomes of Conflict
  • Working Knowledge of Employment Law
  • Identifying Employee Issues
  • Role of Performance Management and Evaluations

130783| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Learn how to ask Probing Questions and Conduct Effective, Efficient Stay Interviews|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
The best way to find out what your employees want and how to retain them is to ask them. Ask questions to gauge how you're meeting your employees' expectations. Not just "How's it going?", but specific questions to get specific answers. Explore why these people remain with your company. Why did they join the organization? How well are their objectives or dreams being fulfilled? Which aspects of their work do they enjoy the most? Which do they least enjoy? Are they receiving sufficient opportunities for growth and development? What would influence them to look elsewhere?

The stay interview is a one-on-one interview between a manager and a valued employee. Its aim, quite simply, is to learn what makes employees want to keep working for you. Likewise, it's designed to elicit what might motivate them to leave. 

In an effective 30-minute stay interview, managers ask standard, structured questions in a casual and conversational manner. It's not a performance discussion but rather a "let me get to know you and your goals" discussion.

The stay interview is an opportunity to build trust with employees and a chance to assess the degree of employee satisfaction and engagement that exists in a department or company. Stay interviews are preferable to employee satisfaction surveys because they:

  • Provide a two-way conversation and a chance to ask questions
  • Get more in-depth understanding of that employee's current motivation
  • Offer managers the opportunity to quickly reinforce the positives and deal with the employee's concerns


Why should you Attend: A recent Harvard Business Review article 'How to Keep Your Top Talent' warns that 25% of your top talent plans to jump ship in the next year.The results for engagement and effort are even more alarming, since about a third of employees surveyed admit to phoning it in at work. That's bad news if you believe that staying competitive relies on the passion, drive and creative energy of talented people.

Many organizations use exit interviews to find out why employees are leaving their jobs. Unfortunately, asking an employee on their last day "why are you leaving?" doesn't provide useful information in time to prevent the turnover. A superior approach is a "stay interview." because it occurs before there is any hint that an employee is about to exit the firm. A stay interview helps managers understand why employees stay so that those important factors can be reinforced. They also signal frustrations that can be nipped in the bud before they drive the employee to start looking elsewhere. 

The Benefits of Stay Interviews:

  • They stimulate the employee: Most employees are excited simply by the fact that the organization is concerned about their future and that their manager took the time to consult with them
  • They're personalized: Unlike engagement surveys and many other retention tools that are focused on what excites a large number of employees, this approach is customized to a single identifiable individual and their wants
  • They include actions: Unlike exit interviews, which only identify problems, stay interviews also encourage the parties to identify actions that can improve the employee experience and actions that can help eliminate any major turnover triggers
  • They are inexpensive: These informal interviews don't require a budget. In most cases, a half to an hour of a manager and an employee's time are the only major cost factors


Adding stay interviews to your engagement and strategies can help your organization retain critical employees. It's the single best tool you can give managers. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Identify Five key Factors that impact an Employee's desire to Stay or Leave
  • Recognize Four Possible "Triggers" that cause the Employee to Consider Leaving
  • Learn how to ask Probing Questions and Conduct Effective, Efficient Stay Interviews
  • Survey a List of Eight Retention Actions to Increase Employee's Loyalty and Commitment
  • Review a sample of Stay Interview Questions and Develop your Own Customized List to ask
  • Discover how to Develop Stay plans for your Employees and Manage Accountability
