Applying the Integrated Care Approach: Practical Skills for the Consulting Psychiatrist and Primary Care Providers

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 | 8:00am - 12:00pm

In partnership with the American and Utah Psychiatric Associations, the Department will host Dr. Lori Raney, a leading authority on the collaborative care model and the bidirectional integration of primary care and behavioral health, for a distinctive 4-hour workshop on integrated behavioral health services in primary care.

This workshop, targeted at both primary care providers and psychiatrists, provides participants with the practical skills needed to work in collaborative care. The course describes the delivery of mental health care in primary care settings with a focus on the evidence-based, guiding principles, and an introduction to implementation strategies. The workshop will include discussion of the compensation model for psychiatrists and primary care providers to provide collaborative care.

Workshop Objectives:
  • Make the case for integrated behavioral health services in primary care, including the evidence for collaborative care
  • Discuss principles of integrated behavioral health care
  • Describe the roles in an integrated care team
  • Apply a primary care-oriented approach to psychiatric consultation for common behavioral health presentations
*As a Support and Alignment Network (SAN) in the CMS Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi), APA is partnering with the AIMS Center at the University of Washington to train 3,500 psychiatrists over 4 years in the clinical and leadership skills needed to support primary care practices that are implementing integrated behavioral health programs.
