Psychiatrists are in a unique position to help shape mental health care delivery in the current rapidly evolving healthcare reform landscape using integrated care approaches, in which mental health is delivered in primary care settings. In this model of care, a team of providers, including the patient’s primary care provider, a care manager, and a psychiatric consultant, work together to provide evidence-based mental health care.

This course includes a combination of didactics and interactive exercises to provide a psychiatrist with the skills necessary to leverage their expertise in the Collaborative Care model, the integrated care approach with the strongest evidence base. The course describes the delivery of mental health care in primary care settings with a focus on the evidence–base, guiding principles and practical skills needed to function as a primary care consulting psychiatrist. Topics include supporting accountable care, leadership essentials, and an introduction to implementation strategies. This live educational format will also allow participants to hear about programs that may be adapted to replicate, connect with experts, other psychiatrists, and mental health providers, and learn about pitfalls and possibilities of implementing integrated psychiatric care into other medical settings.

Expert trainers in the Collaborative Care Model, as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI), will provide a workshop emphasizing the key elements of the model (team-driven, population-focused, measurement-guided, and evidence-based) with emphasis on tools and resources for practice redesign. Supported by Funding Opportunity Number CMS-1L1-15-002 from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid. Please join us, and expect that you will walk away from the course with increased knowledge, motivation, and practical strategies for mental health care in the primary care setting.
