This webinar introduces basic concepts about taking a “scientist practitioner” approach to delivery of primary care behavioral health services. Presenters include Patti Robinson, Heidi Joshi, and Javier Luna. In the CFHA mentor program, Patti has served as a mentor to Heidi and Javier over the past year. The mentoring program offers an opportunity for clinicians to further develop their research and program evaluation skills. Heidi will present data related to systematic implementation of the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model in a large healthcare system with many primary care clinics. Javier will present data related to evolving a PCBH program in a small rural clinic, including addressing Primary Care Clinician stress and identifying high impact patient groups. Participants registered for the webinar will receive copies of the tools used in data collection.
