Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Patients with mental illness are often undertreated, due in part to a lack of resources and access to specialty care for psychiatric concerns. Current evidence supports the use of the ECHO model in managing multiple chronic medical conditions, while the evidence for behavioral health is still preliminary. ECHO programs have been shown to increase primary care provider knowledge, competence, and performance, resulting in improved patient health outcomes on a cost-effective basis. Participants will learn the potential role of the pharmacist in advancing patient care through involvement in ECHO programs.
