The topic of these messages varies from a directive from DHS regarding a programmatic change to informing a participant their budget has been reduced to discussing health and safety issues to reporting events such as critical incidents about abuse and neglect. Due to the sensitive nature of some of these messages, at all times, it is important to maintain the strictest confidentiality with all participant related information including HIPAA and other personal or organizational information. - Work collaboratively with other IRIS Consultant Agency staff in order to ensure a successful implementation of participants plans. - Attend face-to-face monthly team meetings with other ICs and their supervisor.
