How do you involve the patient's family during treatment?
User Submitted Interview Answers
When necessary and appropriate releases have been signed to do so.
You can consult with patients families if a consent form has been signed on their behalf.
Not unless the patient gives me consent to talk to their family regarding a specific issue, and that information will benefit the patients treatment.
As long as my patient offers a release for me to communicate with them, absolutely.
It is up to the patient if they are adults. I would decide based on the history disclosed by the client with their family if it would be in their best interest to be involved in recovery. It is always best if it is possible to ensure they have a support system who has the tools to help them help themselves.
I do if the patient wants this and I have the patient sign a release or information.
Yes if it is permissible. Family is very important in the treatment and recovery process.
Only if the patient gives permission or requests that I do so.
If the patient has given me consent.
Not unless the patient is under 18
