Many economic, financial, and political factors influence the delivery of behavioral health healthcare, making healthcare reform a challenging task. In this course, students examine these factors and challenges, and they consider policy reform through legal, regulatory, ethical, societal, and organizational contexts. Topics include behavioral healthcare policy, advocacy, laws, mandates, contracts, and ethical obligations to provide quality behavioral healthcare by being stewards of their organization. They examine the political and policy process, including agenda setting, stakeholder analysis, and application of policy analysis frameworks.
