In this webinar, Overcoming Pre-Recorded Obstacles, clinician experts will explain how they identified behavioral health needs within their patient populations, and determined if and how they could meet this need in a primary care practice setting.
Experts will share tools, resources and case studies such as examples of how they can provide mild/moderate non-pharmacological behavioral health care within an appropriate and effective primary care setting for the patient.
