How Are They Doing It? Best Practices in Sustaining On-Site Training of Behavioral Health Clinicians

SAMHSA - HRSA Integrated Health Systems

Wednesday Mar 11, 2015 02:00 pm to 03:30 pm EDT
United States

As integrated care evolves as a foundation for health care design, quality and value, we must remain attentive to behavioral health workforce development needs. Join this webinar discussion on training and education from three perspectives – community provider, federal agency and area health education center (AHEC) – on everything from building community relationships for education and training to providing orientation programs for students and trainees and matching trainees with field sites. Learn how these programs develop protocols for how to effectively provide field placements, including accounting for mentor time, effectively dealing with the business costs of intern positions for health care provider organizations (field placements), and addressing the need to provide services while training interns.
