The Massachusetts Association of Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses (MAAPPN) will hold our next quarterly meeting on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at Papa Razzi in Wellesley, Massachusetts from 5:45pm – 9:00pm.
David Matteodo, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Association of Behavioral Health Systems will be our speaker. Mr. Matteodo will be addressing improved access to mental health services in Massachusetts and the role that Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses will play in accomplishing this mission.
MAAPPN (The Massachusetts Association of Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses) is a non- profit organization in the state of Massachusetts that exclusively represents the interests of advanced practice psychiatric nurses – both psychiatric clinical nurse specialists and psychiatric nurse practitioners.
Our 2018 efforts will be on supervisory independence, signatory equivalence of CNS/NPs; collaboration with other organizations to make advances in continuity of care, parity, telehealth, relief from excess paperwork, independent prior auth and medical necessity determination from Psych BH providers who best know the patient, and so much more!
New legislative leadership need to be educated about our role. Payers need to be engaged in fair reimbursement practices and New NPs need to be engaged in our mission. MAAPPN ensures that we have effective relationships with legislators, payers, colleagues and professional peers.
