Understanding what evidence-based Collaborative Care is and how it could look in your organization is extremely important. Everyone -- including the BH care manager, primary care provider, and psychiatric consultant -- needs to understand how things are going to change and why. Collaborative Care can mean different things to different people, so undertaking this part of the training together and providing a venue for sharing ideas, thoughts, and concerns is a terrific way to begin building your collective clinical skills.

  • Understand the Collaborative Care approach, including its evidence base and guiding principles
  • Understand key tasks, including patient engagement and identification, treatment initiation, outcome tracking, treatment adjustment and relapse prevention
