A Welcome from Dr. Nash
Brooks Miller, CEO and Barbara Nash, Psy. D., Director of Behavioral Health Integration are excited to invite you and your Executive Team to a training on how to Integrate Behavioral Health into Primary Care! This will be an experiential training and we will have a limit of 20 attendees to better facilitate open discussions and questions and answers. We will provide an overview of an integrated care practice and information about administrative, operational and clinical components of an integrated care model. The relationships between each of these components will be explored as presenters address the identified learning objectives.
After attending the full program, participants will be able to:
Describe the clinical/treatment opportunities available to behavioral health providers within the primary care setting and describe at least two of the ways that patients benefit from integration within primary care.
Describe strategies for overcoming at least two of the common challenges for behavioral health providers within the primary care setting.
Describe three strategies for inter-professional collaboration/communication between team members (i.e. physician, psychiatrist, behavioral health consultant, case manager) in an integrated care practice.
Describe at least three of the clinical strategies and interventions used when a new patient, with both physical and psychological problems, presents in a team-based integrated care practice.
This program is designed for the administrator, clinical director, medical director, COO, CFO and clinician. The material is appropriate for those with intermediate levels of knowledge, skill and experience.
We look forward to discussions together, and sharing what we have learned over the past five years through integration of Behavioral Health into primary care.
