PC1: Toolkit for PCBH in Pediatrics

Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM


 There has been a consistent need to continue to establish mental health care in pediatric primary care, and considerable interest in gaining knowledge and skills to develop behavioral health in different settings. The physical and mental health needs of children and adolescents are distinctly different than that of adults and a preponderance of research supports the benefits of integrated pediatric care. The benefits of mental, physical, and psychosocial health related behavioral interventions for children, adolescents, and families are numerous.

With a shortage of pediatric medical and behavioral health providers, we must focus on quality evidence-based and best practice standards of team based care. This session will provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and a physical toolkit to begin operating in pediatric integrated care settings. Further, participants will explore critical decision making on best practice innovations for pediatric integrated care and return on investment analysis for successful and effective implementation.

With the growing interest and need in developing and maintaining successful mental health programs for pediatric primary care, we believe the audience will greatly benefit from this topic. We will continue to work closely with the conference committee to ensure that the material works well with the conference you envision and will keep you informed as we progress.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this pre-conference workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Discuss a broad range of best practices in pediatric integrated care.

2. Build and utilize a toolkit of integrated pediatric care resources for immediate implementation in medical settings

3. Identify common care pathways, brief interventions, and screening measures/ assessment strategies for the most common issues in pediatric integrated care.
