Many health care providers struggle to meet the urgent mental health care needs of their patients. Forming collaborative partnerships with other community stakeholders, including paramedics, law enforcement, and care management professionals, can help providers assist patients in accessing needed care more quickly and effectively. This webinar will highlight two different approaches – one using resources in an urban setting, the other in a small rural setting. Through better coordination, these interdisciplinary teams improve patient care, change ED utilization, and reduce inpatient readmissions.
This webinar will devote a portion of time to open Q&As with the presenters to answer questions related to forming community partnerships. If you would like to submit a question prior to this webinar, please email Jane Gendron at the email address below.
