The psychiatric consultant, will provide consultative support within Collaborative Care, primarily through regularly scheduled panel reviews, but also curbside consultations with the behavioral health care manager (BHCM) and primary care providers (PCP). This method of providing care may be new, but with practice, psychiatric consultants typically report increasing comfort and enjoyment with this type of patient care.
Many of the training materials outlined have been developed by the UW-AIMS Center and the American Psychiatric Association.
You should complete the activities outlined in the training plan to prepare for practicing Collaborative Care. The MCCIST training specialist will help facilitate scheduled activities.
We recommend allocating 2 months for training to ensure all activities are completed before patient enrollment.
