This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the key principals of helping our patients via collaborating with and consulting to primary care providers. While this is essential knowledge for anyone hoping to work in a primary care-behavioral health setting, the information presented should also be of value to specialty mental health providers who intend to continue to practice in mental health settings, but hope to increase their referrals from and collaborations with primary care providers.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Presentation level: Introductory. Register today
- Summarize the benefits to collaborating with primary care providers in treating patients with common mental/behavioral health problems.
- Describe at least four ways in which the role of a primary care-behavioral health consultant differs from that of a specialty mental health provider.
- Write intake reports and progress notes that are more likely to be read and viewed as helpful by primary care providers.
Please note: These webinars are approved by the American Psychological Association and New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work for 1 continuing education credit/hour.
