WPA 2018 Fall Conference, September 27 & 28, 2018
Alcohol: Advocating for Change, Addressing Culture, and Advancing Public Health

Optional Pre-Conference Integrated Care Training Workshop
Thursday, September 27, 2018; 12:00-4:00 pm

Applying the Integrated Care Approach: Practical Skills for the Consulting Psychiatrist
John Kern, MD, University of Washington AIMS Center

This course is offered as part of the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) and presented by APA. Space is limited. Full conference registration includes participation in this workshop. A workshop-only registration option is also available.  

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 workshop 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–base, guiding principles and an introduction to implementation strategies. 

Workshop Objectives:

  • Discuss the importance 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.  This training is supported as part of the TCPi.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The APA is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation: The APA designates this live activity for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
