The delivery of mental health care is rapidly changing. Evidence suggests the integration of psychiatric care into the physical care setting is imperative in the treatment of those with mental illness. However, many psychiatrists, primary care physicians and other professionals are unsure how best to make this happen.

Join us as we examine current cutting-edge research, evidence-based practices and models on integrated care. Explore the relationship between the mind and body, furthering your knowledge of the interplay between physical and psychiatric illness. Learn about the business of integrated care from national experts.

Speakers will present a balanced program of lectures and case scenarios to improve your understanding of these issues. Join us!

Current situation: The delivery of mental health care is a rapidly changing landscape with the integration of psychiatric care into the physical care setting.  Many psychiatrists and primary care physicians are unsure how to integrate their practices in an effort to provide quality, efficient service to their patients.  Physicians need to explore existing models and gather tools for successful integration.

Proposed changes:  It is hoped that as a result of participating in this program, physicians will have an improved understanding of the importance of coordinated care, they will understand proper coding for services, and they will have improved collaboration with medical peers thereby improving patient care and quality of life.
