Integrated Care Psychiatric Consultant Learning Collaborative

About the Integrated Care Psychiatric Consultant Learning Collaborative

The University of Washington is excited to welcome Psychiatric Consultants to our Integrated Care Learning Collaborative. The CME-approved Learning Collaborative is designed to provide additional support to psychiatric consultants to deliver integrated care and Collaborative Care in community-based settings.

The one-hour Learning Collaborative sessions are offered once a month via videoconference, with a short didactic presentation followed by questions and discussion on a variety of integrated care topics. Sessions are held on the second Tuesday of the month from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.

The four main aims of the Learning Collaborative are to:

  • Create a statewide learning collaborative that provides support to psychiatric consultants (MDs, DOs, ARNPs, and PAs) that are currently engaged in an integrated care or Collaborative Care practice. 
  • Build upon psychiatric consultants’ prior integrated care training and/or experience by further developing their skills in delivery of effective integrated care.  
  • Target a current gap in integrated care efforts in Washington State by promoting sustainability through longitudinal support for practicing psychiatric consultants in their integrated care programs. 
  • Assist Washington State psychiatric consultants in building a support network, especially in remote and underserved areas of Washington.
