Book chapter stresses the importance of team building in Collaborative Care

In a new book on integrated care in psychiatry, AIMS Center director Jürgen Unützer,  AIMS Center Associate Director for Education Anna Ratzliff, and former AIMS Center staff member Kitty Christensen write about the importance of team buiding in collaborative care. The chapter discusses the process of building a high-functioning collaborative care team, from the need for strong leadership commitment to supporting the ongoing quality improvement efforts of the team. The concise summary maps to our team building section in our Implementation Guide and can serve as a fantastic companion.
