Psychiatrists are uniquely positioned to improve access to effective mental health care in the context of rapidly evolving health care reform. Integrated care programs, in which mental health care is delivered in primary care settings, exist as a promising solution to common, disabling and costly behavioral health problems, such as depression, anxiety and substance use disorders. Collaborative Care, a type of integrated care, has emerged as the strongest evidence-based approach. Psychiatrists play a vital role as part of Collaborative Care teams, providing systematic consultation for a panel of patients cared for in primary care; however, few psychiatrists have been trained in Collaborative Care.

This course is supported by the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI). It provides training in Collaborative Care Consultation Psychiatry, focusing on the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to help psychiatrists provide high quality care for larger populations.
