Webinar Explores Planning Integrated Care for Underserved Populations

Shoulder to Shoulder: A Guide to Planning Integrated Care for Underserved Populations

Date: Wednesday, January 28
Time: 3:30 to 5 p.m. EST

Just in time for those planning to apply for SAMHSA’s $1.6 million Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) opportunity, our integration experts will discuss key factors for successfully planning, coordinating, and delivering integrated healthcare to high need, vulnerable populations in any setting.

Our panel of experts will explore critical considerations for successful outreach, engagement, and treatment, including:

  • Key considerations for culturally responsive health care based on federally mandated CLAS standards
  • Effectively hiring, training, and managing integrated teams—the “who, what, and how” of delivering integrated care
  • Strategies for incorporating effective health promotion and chronic disease management practices, and
  • Critical factors related to compliance with treatment protocols and practice standards

Learning Objectives

By the conclusion of this presentation, participants will:

1)  Deepen their understanding of multiple collaborative possibilities for integrated primary care

2)  Enhance their appreciation for patient clinical and practitioner benefits from participating in an integrated care team

3)  Further their understanding of how integrated care positively contributes to treatment and adherence planning

4)  Have an understanding of key planning considerations that will inform their design of integrated care for high need populations in any treatment setting.
