Integrating Psychology Services Into Specialty Medicine Settings: The perspective of four different approaches

$50.00

Presenters:  Drs. Sivan Rotenberg, Jessica K. Salwen Deremer, Julie Hergenrather and Amy Williams

 

Overview:         

Integrating psychology services into specialty medical settings is becoming a more common practice, but there is little guidance on how to build these services and what factors to consider. What level of integration should the practice have? What services will the psychology practice offer? The goal of this webinar is to begin answering some of these questions and more, by sharing the experience of four different psychologists who work in different medical specialties and in different health systems. Additionally, many psychologists who do not work within a medical setting often have questions about integrated services (e.g., scope of practice, what patients can expect) which we hope to begin to clarify.  By the end of this webinar we aim to share lessons learnt and other helpful tips, and to highlight other potential roles for psychologists in academic medical centers and other medical settings.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Highlight factors to consider when integrating a psychology service
  2.  Describe services developed for different health conditions
  3.  Discuss models of embedded psychology services to fit different health systems
  4.  Compare integrated psychology services to others areas of psychology
