Agenda Details

 

Session One: January 11, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PST

 

Models of Integration: The Primary Care Behavioral Health Approach
with Patti Robinson and Kirk Strosahl

 

This webinar will provide an overview of the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) approach to integrating behavioral health and primary care services. The evidence for this approach will be briefly described. Participants will complete a self-assessment regarding their clinic’s approach to integration and set targets for further evolving integration efforts.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn to use the GATHER mnemonic to describe the PCBH approach.

2. Gain knowledge of the evidence for the PCBH approach to integration.

3. Use the PCBH Big Ten Checklist to assess the features of your clinic’s approach to integration.

 

Session Two: February 8, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PST

 

Exploring and Addressing Barriers to Integration
with Patti Robinson and Kirk Strosahl

 

Implementation of PCBH services involves attention to many details, ranging from training to substantial change in operational processes. This workshop introduces tools for participants to use in identifying barriers to use of behavioral health services in primary care and more specifically to use of behavioral health visits on a same-day basis. Participants will complete a survey to identify possible barriers and then participate in a discussion about how to address these barriers successfully.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Master skills for understanding barriers to primary care clinician (PCCs) use of primary care behavioral health services.

2. Learn to score PCC and nursing staff survey results and provide feedback to PCCs, nursing staff and clinic leadership.

3. Brain storm strategies for addressing identified strategies.

 

Session Three: March 8, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PST

 

Treating Depression with Compassion
with with Patti Robinson and Kirk Strosahl

 

In this webinar, the presenters will provide a basic overview of depression – including its definition, pertinent prevalence rates, and common comorbidities. We will also discuss common screening tools that can be used in the primary care setting. The goal will be to help medical and behavioral health professionals in primary care to treat individuals who are experiencing symptoms of depression in a compassionate way through the use of evidenced based behavioral medicine.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe depression and its rates, common comorbidities, and screening tools.

2. Gain knowledge of basic behavioral interventions for depression.

3. Apply the behavioral skills learned to a real-world case example.

 

Session Four: April 12, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT

 

Optimal Treatment of Anxiety in Primary Care
with Bridget Beachy and David Bauman

 

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern treated in the United States. However, and similar to depression, anxiety concerns often go undiagnosed and are less often treated in the primary care setting. This webinar will provide background information regarding anxiety concerns seen in primary care and appropriate behavioral and medical treatment. We will also have a real world case example that prompts attendees to apply a contextual framework as well as discuss appropriate evidence-informed interventions.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe anxiety concerns and its rates, common comorbidities, and screening tools.

2. Gain knowledge of basic behavioral interventions for anxiety concerns seen in primary care.

3. Apply the behavioral skills learned to a real-world case example.

 

Session Five: June 14, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT

 

Making a Difference with Diabetes
with Bridget Beachy and David Bauman

 

Diabetes (DM) is one of the most common chronic conditions seen in primary care, with 1 out of 11 Americans having DM and 1 out of 3 adult Americans being prediabetic. Due to lifestyle factors playing such a crucial role in this disorder, behavioral health providers are primed to support healthcare systems in addressing this growing concern. This webinar will provide an overview of DM, evidence-based behavioral interventions for DM and a case example that will allow participants to apply their clinical knowledge.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe basic information regarding DM (e.g., etiology, prevalence rates, etc.).

2. Gain knowledge of evidenced based behavioral treatment approaches to DM.

3. Apply and adapt these evidence based treatments to real-world PC settings.

 

Session Six: July 12, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT

 

Brief Interventions: Sleep Concerns
with Bridget Beachy and David Bauman

 

Sleep concerns continue to be universal problems addressed in primary care. Due to the overlap of medical and behavioral causes for sleep concerns, it is paramount that such concerns are treated from an integrated approach. This webinar will detail specifics regarding sleep concerns in primary, evidence-based/informed interventions, as well as provide attendees a relevant case to discuss the applicability of interventions.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe sleep concerns and its rates, common comorbidities, and screening tools.

2. Gain knowledge of basic behavioral interventions for sleep concerns.

3. Apply the behavioral skills learned to a real-world case example.

 

Session Seven: August 9, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT

 

Brief Interventions: Substance Abuse
with Bridget Beachy and David Bauman

 

Addressing substance abuse concerns in primary care are becoming increasingly commonplace. Furthermore, regular screening, brief interventions, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) are increasingly being recommended for primary care clinics. However, providers, both behaviorally and medically, find themselves often wanting to do more, particularly due to the low follow-up rates of individuals to specialty mental health and substance abuse referrals and pervasiveness of the concern. This webinar will provide a background and overview of substance abuse in primary care, as well as specific pathways and interventions clinicians could implement and utilize that goes beyond referrals to specialty settings.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain knowledge regarding the realities of substance abuse in primary care.

2. Describe evidenced-informed interventions for substance abuse appropriate for primary care.

3. Gain knowledge regarding the shift of focus from substance abuse being seen as a disease to substance abuse being seen as a symptom of an individuals’ greater context.

 

Session Eight: September 13, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT

 

The Pain Matrix: Starting an Engaging Conversation
with Patti Robinson

 

Persistent pain is a complex problem, and clinicians may improve their sense of satisfaction as well as patients’ satisfaction by starting a new conversation with patients. Participants will learn an approach for engaging patients in developing a new perspective on pain, one that is more accepting and mindful.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the difference between public and private behavior.

2. Explain “away” moves that patients may take in regards to pain.

3. Explain strategies for patients to use to choose “toward” moves in regards to values.

 

Session Nine: November 8, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PST

 

Tackling Obesity Head-On in Primary Care
with Bridget Beachy and David Bauman

 

Obesity continues to be a growing epidemic in the United States impacting 1/3 of Americans (with another 1/3 being overweight). Increasing the mortality rates of all leading causes of death, obesity is one of the more serious and pervasive problems seen in primary care. While specific guidelines regarding the assessment and treatment of obesity are available, effective treatments are few and far between, particularly for the primary care setting. This webinar will provide individuals a contextual approach to weight concerns in primary care, as well as evidence-based/informed interventions to address the obesity epidemic that plagues the primary care system.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe obesity and its rates, common comorbidities, and screening tools.

2. Gain knowledge of basic behavioral interventions for obesity.

3. Apply the behavioral skills learned to a real-world case example.

 

Session Ten: December 13, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 PM PST

 

Wrap Up: The Psychological Flexibility Model
with Kirk Strosahl, Patti Robinson, Bridget Beachy, and David Bauman

 

This webinar will describe a trans-diagnostic model for promoting health in primary care—for providers as well as patients. This evidence-based approach emphasizes mindfulness and value-based actions in daily life. Participants will have the opportunity to clarify a value related to their delivery of health care services and to plan a specific value-consistent goal for 2018. This final webinar in the 2017 series will also offer participants a time for questions to promote consolidation in learning and connection with others in the NW region.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe two core features of the psychological flexibility model.

2. Use the Bulls-Eye Plan to clarify a value and plan a specific behavior change experiment.

3. Anticipate how the Bulls-Eye Plan can be useful to supporting patients with challenged by both medical and psychological problems.
