Modification of the RDI protocol for inpatient use


A recent pilot project was initiated in an inpatient adult psychiatric unit to enhance programming and provide interventions to individuals in crisis. The project added a group component to the existing RDI protocol. This presentation will summarize the recent pilot study and results. It will include a review of RDI procedures, and guidelines for assessing patients' needs and choosing appropriate RDI protocols. ParticipaNTs will leave the workshop with new tools that will enable them to evaluate the clinical needs of their inpatient populations and modify the RDI protocol to suit them. Participants will also discuss data collection and research methods.
