The practice of healthcare professionals impaired by substance abuse or mental health issues threatens patient safety. No treatment or research program has focused on a broad-based plan to evaluate and treat a large and varied population of healthcare professionals. The Michigan Health Professional Recovery Program (HPRP) covering 272,000 health professionals in 17 professions offers a unique research opportunity. Using Donabedian's model of structure, process, and outcome, the purpose of the research is to determine, through the HPRP, the most effective clinical pathways for treating and monitoring health professionals so they may return to practice while protecting public safety. The sample includes all of the 2000+ professionals referred to the HPRP. Data for phase one of the longitudinal study is being collected by on-going chart review. Client surveys will be added in phase two. Analysis will include correlations and logistic regression. Initial results have shown: methods of referral; demographics; and characteristics of those who do and do not successfully complete the Program including diagnosis, profession, gender and drug(s) of choice. Demand for accountability in treatment is rising as methods of treatment are changing, e.g., from inpatient to outpatient settings. Ongoing analysis of these and other aspects of the Program's results provide an essential component in determining how to best rehabilitate impaired healthcare professionals for long-term recovery.
