Primary Care Provider Training

Effective Collaborative Care is a team of providers working together on a single treatment plan. Its success relies on each member of the treatment team understanding their role and having the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill that role.

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) offers a FREE training that will prepare Primary Care Providers (PCPs) for success in their role. This training is part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI).
