Free AAFP Webcast Discusses Benefits of Integrating Behavioral Health

Evolving patient needs and primary care-centric payment models have sparked major behavioral health integration (BHI) innovations in family medicine. It’s now easier than ever for family physicians to choose a sustainable BHI model that’s right for their practice.

The livestream will be held on November 16 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will explore the many benefits BHI can provide, including better patient outcomes and greater practice satisfaction.

During this one-hour panel discussion, family physicians can discover where they fit in today’s BHI environment and learn how to start or move forward with integrating behavioral health in their practice.

At the conclusion of this session, learners will…

⎼ Understand the current U.S. landscape in BHI, including existing challenges in addressing behavioral health needs of patients.

⎼ Be able to identify the need for and promise of integrating behavioral health into primary care.

⎼ Be familiar with a variety of successful BHI models and pathways for implementing them in practice.

Participants can ask questions, chat with colleagues, and earn 1 CME credit as they set themselves and their patients up for behavioral health success. Members can also join an online community to exchange insights with experts and peers.

This livestream is the first in a series of CME sessions about practice implementation aspects of BHI.

Online registration for the session is now open.
