A Population Approach to Treatment Engagement in Behavioral Health Care


 

DCoE Webinar Series (Psychological Health):  August 2014
 

Date/Time: August 28, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

The webinar will address two major challenges relating to psychological treatment engagement in the military. First, many with psychological health conditions do not access timely services. Second, most who access services drop out of treatment before it is completed. Frontloading services in primary care can improve the first challenge. A recent Institute of Medicine report noted the growing burden of posttraumatic stress disorder among service members and veterans and recommended an integrated, coordinated treatment strategy and measurement based care with feedback to clinicians to improve treatment engagement once patients access care.

Webinar participants will review systems-level interventions that improve access and continuity of behavioral health care. Delivering high quality services in primary care can improve treatment access. Once in treatment, strategies such as motivational interviewing, behavioral activation and problem solving can increase continuity, help patients manage symptoms and improve functioning, adherence, outcomes and risk management.  The addition of a care facilitator into staffing plans and workflows further strengthens continuity through improved engagement.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Define a population approach to behavioral health care in the Military Health System
  • Differentiate patient level engagement strategies from system level strategies
  • Foster total care team involvement in engaging patients in care
  • Discuss examples and ways to improve treatment engagement
