Effective Clinical Practice. 1998;1(1):2-4.] “…in essence integrated health care is the systematic coordination of physical and behavioral health care.

  • What was the process like of getting to the change?
  • What helped?
  • What didn’t help? Think about a time you have supported someone else in making a change :
  • What did you do that worked?
  • Habits & Health Behavior Change
  • “40% of the actions people perform each day weren’t actual decisions, but habits.”
  • Bad habits never die they are replaced by better habits.
  • All habits have a Cue-> Routine-> Reward
  • Golden Rule of Beh. Change: Use the same cue & the same reward but replace the routine Charles Duhigg--The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life & Business
  • Motivational Interviewing basics: what we know about change
  • Motivation for change is malleable & particularly formed in relationships & through belief
  • Motivation is gained in the presence of active collaboration and shared decision making
  • People have inherent resources for change when the change is connected to their goals, values and dreams
  • Honoring the right not to change can make change possible.
  • Four key strategies
  • Listen for change talk
  • Deal with ambivalence
  • Look for degree of commitment
  • Look for degree of confidence

  • Anything is better than nothing
  • Adding a small change will improve health
  • Small steps can lead to big changes
  • Support and accountability contribute to change

  • Cause?
  • Impacts?
  • Management?
  • Diabetes and Persons with SPMI Routine medical examinations and tests for people with diabetes*

  • Check feet for sores at every visit, and give a thorough foot exam at least once a year
  • Give a hemoglobin A1C test at least twice a year, to determine average blood glucose level over the past 2 to 3 months
  • Test urine and blood to check kidney function at least once a year
  • Test blood lipids (fats) – total cholesterol at least once a year

  • Know your diabetes ABCs
  • Talk to your health care team about how to manage your A1C, Blood pressure, and Cholesterol. This can help lower your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or other diabetes problems. Here's what the ABCs of diabetes stand for:
  • A for the A1C test (A-one-C).
  • It shows what your blood glucose has been over the last three months. The A1C goal for many people is below 7. High blood glucose can harm your heart and blood vessels, kidneys, feet, and eyes.
  • B for Blood pressure.
  • The goal for most people with diabetes is below 130/80.
  • High blood pressure makes your heart work too hard. It can cause heart attack, stroke, and kidney disease.
  • C for Cholesterol (ko-LES-ter-ol).
  • The LDL goal for people with diabetes is below 100.The HDL goal for men with diabetes is above 40.The HDL goal for women with diabetes is about 50.
  • LDL or “bad” cholesterol can build up and clog your blood vessels. It can cause a heart attack or a stroke. HDL or “good” cholesterol helps remove cholesterol from your blood vessels.
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • An approximate measure of body fat based on height and weight.
  • A BMI between 19 and 25 is considered a normal amount of body fat.
  • If someone's BMI is 25 to 29.9, that person is said to be overweight.
  • A person is said to be obese if his or her BMI is 30 or higher.
  • The higher your BMI, the greater your risk for diseases such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Arthritis, and certain cancers.

  • Self Checks of Blood Glucose
  • My Game Plan for Diabetes
  • Does the organization collect the needed lab work for diabetes?
  • With substantial credit to Chronic Illness challenge: vascular disease Vascular Disease Coronary Artery Disease (CAD):
  • Caused by a thickening of the inside walls of the coronary arteries. This thickening is called atherosclerosis.
  • A fatty substance called plaque builds up inside the thickened walls of the arteries, blocking or slowing the flow of blood.
  • If your heart muscle doesn't get enough blood to work properly, you may have angina or a heart attack. Angina is a squeezing pain or pressing feeling in your chest
  • Reducing Risks for Vascular Disease
  • Don't smoke.Nicotine raises your blood pressure because it causes your body to release adrenaline, which makes your blood vessels constrict and your heart beat faster. If you smoke, ask your doctor to help you make a plan to quit. After 2 or 3 years of not smoking, your risk of CHD will be as low as the risk of a person who never smoked.
  • Control your blood pressure. If you're taking medicine for high blood pressure, be sure to take it just the way your doctor tells you to.
  • Exercise. Regular exercise can make your heart stronger and reduce your risk of heart disease. Exercise can also help if you have high blood pressure. Before you start, talk to your doctor about the right kind of exercise for you. Try to exercise at least 4 to 6 times a week for at least 30 minutes each time.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Add foods to your diet that are low in cholesterol and saturated fats, because your body turns saturated fats into cholesterol
  • People receiving integrated services report higher quality of life and greater satisfaction with: Access Attention to their treatment preferences Courtesy Coordination & continuity of care Overall care Consumers’ take on integration Druss et al, Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2001; 58(9): 861-8. Unutzer et al, JAMA. 2002; 288(22): 2836-2845. Ell et al, Diabetes Care. 2010; 33(4): 706-713. Integration as Part of the Strategy
  • Integration does not mean return to a medical model
  • Provides access to multiple services at one time and place
  • Improves the quality of all services
  • Creates space within the current public sector for more consumers
  • Ultimately reduce the early loss of life for those with a serious and persistent mental illness
