As behavioral health services in primary care settings become more widely implemented across the country, the need for skilled providers in this area grows. In response to this demand, initiatives to cross-train behavioral health providers are under way. The goal of these training programs is to ensure these providers can successfully integrate their various disciplines into the primary care field. This course is designed for direct clinical practitioners who deliver or plan to deliver integrated health services, and who serve populations often presenting with complex needs in physical health, mental health, and substance use. Participants will gain assessment, intervention, and consultation skills and learn strategies to apply these skills in the workplace. Methods for presenting behavioral health clinical needs in a primary care setting will be explored, in addition to envisioning the future model of integrated practice and setting goals. Furthermore, effective communication and role clarity as primary factors for successful teamwork practices are analyzed. The objectives of this presentation are:
- a. To define integrated behavioral health care and the purposes of having multidisciplinary providers work together collectively when treating patients.
- b. To explore integration of core competencies targeting enhanced health and mental wellness. To examine the process of care delivery and multi-level outcomes.
- c. To assess readiness for changes expected with the Affordable Health Care Act.
- d. To strengthen assessment, intervention and consultation skills critical to integrated care.
- e. To explore the benefits of integrated care for patients and practitioners.
- f. To assist clinicians with improving efficiency and productivity when working with individuals which benefits the organization and participant.
