In this mode of care, a team of providers, including the patient's primary care provider, a care manager and a psychiatric consultant work together to provide evidence-based mental health care.  This course includes a combination of didactics and interactive exercises to provide a psychiatrists with the skills necessary to leverage their expertise in the Collaborative Care model, the integrated care approach with the strongest evidence base. The course describes the deliver of mental health care in primary care settings with a focus on the evidence-base, guiding principles and practical skills needed to function as a primary care consulting psychiatrist.  Topics include supporting accountable care, leadership essentials for the integrated care psychiatrist and an introduction to implementation strategies.
