Module 14: Collaborative Care in Perinatal Populations

Speaker: Lori Raney, MD, Faculty Psychiatrist at MAHEC Center for Psychiatry and Mental Wellness

This webinar will cover the adaptations to the collaborative care model necessary for successful implementation in the perinatal population. It will cover the roles of the key team members including the OB/GYN, behavioral health care manager (BHCM) and the psychiatric consultant. Specific adaptations for the BHCM will be discussed in detail. Diagnostic consideration for different diagnoses seen in pregnancy and postpartum will be described and the screening tools to consider.


Module 15: Improving CoCM Quality Using Technology

Speakers: Nathaniel A Sowa, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor & John N Copeland, MD MPH

In this session, participants will learn about how technology can facilitate implementation and maintenance of a high-quality CoCM program. The course will demonstrate different ways that patient registries can be utilized to monitor patient progress, as well as fidelity to the treatment model. Construction and use of data dashboards that facilitate monitoring of program quality metrics will be examined. A brief description of how technology can be incorporated into the CoCM workflow to gather patient reported outcomes will demonstrate ways to utilize technology solutions to improve program efficiency and patient engagement.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has partnered with NC AHEC to provide educational and practice-based support to primary care practices interested in implementing the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) -- a team-based, interdisciplinary approach to deliver evidence-based diagnoses, treatment, and follow-up care for patients with mild to moderate behavioral health needs.

Our CoCM Training Series is comprised of modules which demonstrate how to apply this model to implement this modality. We will measure learner knowledge with an evaluation assessment tool following the completion of the series. Modules will be released on a monthly basis and will provide you with the initial steps to implement CoCM and the tools for ongoing support. Contact hours, CEUs, NASW-NC Contact Hours, AMA PRA Category 1 Creditâ„¢, and NBCC will be offered.
