• Analyze the pros and cons of the behavioral health carve-out methodology.

CE Registration/Documentation

Each CE type costs $50 (no additional fee for ethics) and should be included on the conference registration form along with all associated license numbers or using the Continuing Education form in your on-site packet. As in previous years, people seeking continuing education must complete and submit paperwork prior to leaving the conference. Paperwork is included in each registrant’s welcome tote bag.

 

RCPA ensures that a formal validation of CE credits is sent to those who register and complete paperwork. The certificates will be generated through Drexel University and/or RCPA and will be sent to the email address indicated on returned documentation. Other questions regarding CE program offerings can be addressed to staff working at the CE table.

Drexel University College of Medicine, Behavioral Healthcare Education

Behavioral Healthcare Education (BHE) was established in 1980 with contractual funding from what is now the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. The purpose of its creation was to turn clinical knowledge from biological and programmatic research into information and skills that are directly useful to practitioners in the behavioral health fields, particularly those working with persons in the public and Medicaid managed care arenas who have serious and persistent mental disorders. Since that time BHE has added expertise in the areas of substance use disorders, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and child and adolescent diagnoses and treatment. The mission of the Division of Behavioral Healthcare Education is to support behavioral health practitioners in providing high quality services to people of all ages. We fulfill this mission through delivering continuing education, consultation, technical assistance, and conferences, using evidence-based and promising practices, research findings, and program and policy advances.
