This webinar series was developed by VHCF to provide continuing education for health care professionals who provide primary care to individuals with mental health conditions, and may not have mental health specialists available either onsite or in the community.
Based on the priority needs identified in an April 2013 survey of Virginia’s safety net medical directors conducted by VHCF, two modules were developed: Pharmacotherapy for Psychiatric Disorders in Primary Care, and Diagnostic Considerations for Psychiatric Disorders in Primary Care. Each module is approximately 1.5-2 hours in length, and the cost to register is $25/webinar.
In addition to physicians, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants, other health professionals who may be interested include pharmacists, dentists, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors and registered nurses. Both webinars are approved for CME credit, and thePharmacotherapy for Psychiatric Disorders in Primary Care module also is approved for ACPE credit.
