In this continuation from session one, participants will become familiar with the clinical aspects of PCBH work. This will include screening for behavioral health concerns, learning how to conduct brief visits with targeted interventions, documentation, collaborative care work with consulting psychiatrists, the use of SBIRT, and other strategies.
