Integrative Care: Primary Care and Mental Health

header-with-text.png

The Integrative Care network is an online professional learning community designed to increase the knowledge and implementation of integrative care involving primary and mental health care across Wyoming.

Integrative care is the care a patient experiences as a result of a team of primary care and behavioral health clinicians, working together with patients and families, using a systematic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population. This care may address mental health and substance abuse conditions, health behaviors (including their contribution to chronic medical illnesses), life stressors and crises, stress-related physical symptoms, and ineffective patterns of health care utilization.

Network participants include physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, counselors and others involved in primary care and mental health services.

UW ECHO in Integrative Care is a collaboration with the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, with funding by a generous grant from the McMurry Foundation.

Course Instructor:

Anne Bodmer Lutz, B.S.N., M.D.

Solution-Focused Therapy is a short-term goal-focused evidence-based therapeutic approach which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems. Healthcare practitioners can use this modality to empower clients to own their abilities in solving life's problems. Solution-Focused Therapy has exceptional value when used in the integrative care setting involving both primary and mental health care by offering brief solution-based techniques and a future-oriented vehicle for formulating, motivating, achieving, and sustaining desired behavioral change.

This course provides 15 CE credits. Attendance to all sessions is required, and the course is limited to 25 participants.

 

Instructions for joining Zoom are available. Zoom also provides access for users with physical disabilities, blindness, and low vision through a range of keyboard shortcuts.
