Coding for Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care

JOIN PEDIATRIC PRIMARY CARE PROVIDERS FOR A WEBINAR ON CODING WITH 2021 GUIDELINES 

2021 has brought in sweeping changes for coding.  Coding by time when treating mental health patients in the primary care setting is not necessarily the best option any longer!  Clinicians need to understand the new coding rules and how to apply them in order to be properly paid for their care and services.  Join us for a one-hour webinar given by a fellow primary care clinician explaining the new rules in plain language, including real case examples and a coding calculator.

Dr. Lashley has been in pediatric practice since 1990.  His undergraduate training was at Vanderbilt University.  Dr. Lashley finished his medical training at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, and completed his residency in pediatrics at The Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.  Dr. Lashley is Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Nassau Academy of Medicine.  He was president of the local chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics from 2013-2015, and now serves as an advisor to them.  Dr. Lashley also has been on the Executive Board of the Nassau Pediatric Society for several years as the Chairman of both the Membership and Immunization Committees and was President of the Nassau Pediatric Society in 2002.  He is a member of Allied Physicians Group of NY and is on their Board of Managers.  Dr Lashley has been appointed to the faculty of Hofstra Medical School and is a student mentor for them.  In 2018, Dr. Lashley was given the prestigious Top Doctor Award from NY TopDocs.

AAP Advocacy Conference 2021

2021 AAP Annual Advocacy Conference
formerly named the Legislative Conference
April 11 – 13, 2021

The Advocacy Conference for 2021 will be completely virtual because of the ongoing pandemic.  The new event name, the AAP Advocacy Conference, reflects the broad scope of content and skills that the conference encompasses.  While the conference this year will be adapted to a virtual environment, attendees should expect the conference to cover much of the same curriculum as it always has, including virtual Capitol Hill visits.

The conference brings together pediatricians and pediatric trainees from across the country who share a passion for child health advocacy.  This year’s virtual conference will have a jam-packed agenda, including distinguished speakers, advocacy skills and issue sessions and opportunities to learn how to be a strong voice for children.

On the final day of the conference, participants will attend virtual meetings with their congressional offices and other attendees from their state to discuss a timely child health issue.

Commissioner’s Medical Grand Rounds

Strengthening Community and Health Care Provider Resiliency to Adverse Childhood Experiences

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events in childhood that can have negative, lasting
effects on health and well-being that can be passed on to future generations.  These experiences range from physical,
emotional or sexual abuse to those concerning household instability, such as parental divorce, incarceration, substance abuse or mental illness, among others.  Panelists will discuss a guide for implementing best practices when addressing ACEs; tools to incorporate screening for ACEs, resilience and social determinants of health into primary care practice; approaches for assisting families; causes of staff burnout; and strategies for building a more resilient workforce.

Hosts:

  • Howard A. Zucker, MD, JD – Commissioner, New York State Department of Health
  • John M. Carrigg – President & CEO, UHS & UHS Hospitals

Presenters:

  • Nicole M. Brown, MD, MPH, MHS – Founder & Chief Health Officer, Strong Children Wellness
  • Chris Kjolhede, MD, MPH – Co-Director, Bassett School-Based Health Program
  • Michael Lavin, MD – Director of Psychiatry, Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Hospital

The Grand Rounds Program is free of charge for all providers in NYS. Advance registration is requested.  Please click HERE to register to attend in-person or via the live webinar.  Registration ID is not required.  Select “Not registered yet?  Click here to register.”
