Recognizing Hypermobile Connective Tissue Disorders: a Primer for Integrative Providers
12:00 pm ET/11:00 am CT/9:00 am PT

Presented by Alena Guggenheim, ND, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, OHSU

OVERVIEW: 

Hypermobile spectrum disorders (HSD) and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) are often overlooked and highly debilitating. Integrative providers are particularly well situated to provide comprehensive care for this patient population as we have been trained to take a holistic rather than a compartmentalized approach. This talk will cover recognition and diagnostic approaches to hypermobile connective tissue disorders and common comorbidities.

OVERVIEW:

In this session, we present findings from a mixed-method evaluation of the Whole Health System of Care (WHS) as it is being implemented at 18 flagship VA medical centers. We will describe this large-scale evaluation and our partnership with OPCC&CT as they implement the WHS. We will first describe the WHS and its components, highlighting the role that CIH plays within the larger person-focused system.

We will then present findings on:

1) the levels of WHS implementation achieved at the 18 sites and barriers and facilitators to implementation;

2) the impact of the WHS on patient-reported outcomes, focused on patient engagement and well-being;

3) the impact of WHS implementation on cost and healthcare utilization and;

4) the impact of WHS implementation on employee engagement, and its association with burnout and facility-level performance measure.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to describe the components of the Whole Health System of Care (WHS) in the VA, and barriers and facilitators to its implementation.
  • Understand impact of the WHS on patients' health and well-being.
  • Understand the cost of implementing a WHS.
  • Understand the impact of the WHS on employees providing WH care.
