Teaming Up: Policies to Support the Integrated Care Workforce

This event has passed.

An extensive and growing body of evidence shows the benefits of delivering more mental health and substance use services through—and in collaboration with—primary care providers. Integrated primary care and behavioral health services are shown to increase patients’ access to services, improve health outcomes, and enhance cost-effectiveness of care.

But how do we ensure that the workforce is equipped to deliver integrated care services? What makes up a successful integrated care team? Recent policy changes have begun to tackle the issue, but more work is needed to continue to train, support, and finance the workforce needed to deliver integrated primary care and behavioral health services.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Commonwealth Fund as we discuss federal policy solutions to make better use of the existing integrated care workforce and expand opportunities to grow the supply.
