The Collaborative Care Model integrates effective psychiatric care into primary care practices.  It is the only integrated care model with a clear evidence base and has been tested in more than 80 randomized trials.  Collaborative Care uses a team-based approach to address care for the ‘whole person.”  The care team consists of a behavioral health care manager, psychiatric consultant, and a primary care provider (PCP).

The training, led by John Kern, MD and Anna Ratzliff, MD, PhD from the University of Washington’s AIMS Center, will provide participants with the practical skills to work in collaborative care.  The course describes the delivery of mental health care in primary care settings with a focus on the evidence-base, guiding principles, and an introduction to implementation strategies.

In addition to the training, you will also hear from SAMHSA’s CMO and APA Past President, Anita Everett, MD, DFAPA on Using Collaborative Care to Reduce Physician Burnout, as well as Steven Chan, MD, MBA, a Physician with Palo Alto VA Health and Stanford University, Psychiatry, Addiction Treatment Service on The Virtual Consult: Current Trends and the Future of Telepsychiatry & Telemedicine Best Practices.
