September 18 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm MDT
Patty Gibson, MD
With the increasing need for mental health care and the shortage of all mental health clinicians including psychiatrists, it is important that principles of psychiatric stewardship are utilized to redefine the roles of psychiatrists in integrated behavioral health teams.
By describing psychiatrists’ training and the current models of financial reimbursement and roles for psychiatrists in integrated care, this workshop will provide background for the subsequent panel discussion about past experiences and future strategies to leverage psychiatric expertise.
- Review the concept of psychiatric stewardship
- Describe the education pathways of psychiatrists
- Discuss current models and roles of psychiatrists in integrated behavioral health
- Identify current financial strategies to reimburse psychiatrists in primary care
