Depression Screening & Treatment in Primary Care: Part Two

October 5, 2016
Video coming soon!

One in four individuals will struggle with a mental health or substance use disorder in their lifetime, yet only 40% of those seek treatment in a given year. Untreated mental health issues have a significant negative impact on quality of life and physical health, so addressing these issues in primary care could prevent health complications in the future. Join us for part two of this two-part webinar series that reviews the nuts and bolts of screening and treatment of depression in primary care. Universal depression screening is essential to meeting CCO metrics, but the processes and procedures that follow screening are essential to delivering comprehensive care.

Part 2 - Workflow and Engaging the Clinical Team - October 5, 2016

During this webinar, the presenters will:

  • Review of depression and other behavioral health screening tools
  • Share practical tools to address depression in primary care, including workflows, protocols, care pathways, ongoing evaluation - for practices both with and without a behavioral health provider
  • Present additional non-medication treatment options that expand on information presented in Part 1 of this webinar series
