Evidence-Based Screening, Assessment For Common Mental Health Disorders
1.25 / CNE Contact Hours (0.25 pharmacology credit, 0.25 psychopharmacology)
Recognizing the advantages of integrating mental health care into primary care, many accrediting and grant awarding bodies are encouraging screening, assessment and brief interventions (SBIRT) for common pediatric mental health problems in the treatment setting preferred by families – their pediatric primary care office. Age appropriate screening instruments will be demonstrated and experience in using the tools in primary care will be shared. What will set this session apart will be the presentation of early mental health interventions that are evidence-based and easily incorporated into the primary care brief office visit. There will also be a discussion of when referral to specialty psychiatric care is indicated and recommended. Resources for families will be shared and the presenters will share what works well in the busy pediatric office including the nuts and bolts of scheduling the interventions into an already busy practice day (in 20 – 30 minute visits), coding, billing, reimbursement and approaching practice management.
