    About the Presentation:In an era of rapid changes in the healthcare marketplace, the psychologists and neuropsychologists face substantial challenges maintaining both access to services and a favorable practice climate. The Inter Organizational Practice Committee has developed a model of 360 Degree Advocacy that allows national psychology and neuropsychology organizations to identify and address practice threats and advocacy opportunities with maximal impact and efficiency by sharing best practices and activating the existing network of state psychological associations and regional neuropsychological societies. The result is a rapid advocacy response, using best national practices, with buy in and “boots on the ground resources” from local clinicians and state level leaders.

    This talk presents the 360 Degree Advocacy Model, including examples of the model in action, and lays out the rationale for how psychologists and neuropsychologists can become involved in effective advocacy efforts. 

    Learning objectives: Participants will:

    1. Discuss current threats to our practice climate in the era of healthcare consolidation and payment reform

    2. Understand the InterOrganizational Practice Committee’s 360 Degree Advocacy Model

    3. Identify how Connecticut psychologists and neuropsychologists can harness 360 degree advocacy to address their advocacy agenda
