In 2005 Dr. Maggie Bennington-Davis co-authors a book "Restraint and Seclusion: The Model for Eliminating Their Use in Healthcare". Maggie will be joining us for a discussion of how she has influenced change in an acute psychiatric inpatient unit.
Maggie is Chief Medical Officer at Health Share of Oregon, a Coordinated Care Organization serving 400,000 people enrolled in Medicaid. She led the development of a cultural change model at a regional medical center for the implementation of trauma-sensitive services with the subsequent elimination of seclusion and restraint on an acute psychiatric inpatient unit (based on the early work of Dr. Sandra Bloom). Maggie co-authored a book, published articles and chapters on the subject, and has done numerous consultations and presentations nationally and internationally regarding organizational change, trauma-informed, engaging environments, and leadership.
Maggie completed her MD and psychiatry residency at Oregon Health Sciences University where she remains on faculty and a Masters of Medical Management degree at Tulane University School of Public Health.
