[Virtual] The Pros of a Fully Virtual Adolescent Partial Hospital Program: How a Multidisciplinary Team Works to REACH Teens and Families in Rhode Island and Beyond
May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm$49
Based on positive experiences of providing virtual care at the Bradley adolescent partial hospitalization program (APHP) during the COVID-19 pandemic and to help meet the needs of a stressed mental health care system, Bradley launched a unique fully virtual APHP program in October 2021, after in-person care had resumed. This virtual program, named “REACH,” treats patients from Rhode Island, Connecticut and southern Massachusetts. This program was modeled after Bradley’s in-person adolescent partial hospitalization program (APHP) which started in 2010.
The APHP is an intensive day treatment program which provide teens ages 13 to 18 with access to individual, group, family, psychiatric, and milieu-based treatment with a multidisciplinary team consisting of psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, nurses, psychology assistants, and behavioral health specialists. Staff, patients, and their families in REACH meet via Zoom six hours daily on weekdays for these therapies.
Initial data from the first year of REACH showed no significant difference in patient satisfaction or outcomes compared to the in-person APHP. In this presentation, participants will explore the treatment model of virtual APHP, especially from a cohesive, multidisciplinary team perspective. We will then look at clinical outcomes from parent, teen and clinician viewpoints.
- Target audience: psychologists, physicians, social workers and other interested health care professionals
