Event description

Description

Description:

As part of a new approach to the education of health care providers, the Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA) is offering the Medical Psychiatry Collaborative Care Certificate (MP3C), a continuing education program to support learning in integrated mental and physical collaborative health care. The program aims to provide education resources for health care providers who would like to be better equipped to assess and manage patients with co-existing mental and physical health needs.

The assessment, management and prevention of integrated mental and physical health remains a challenge in our health care system. Health care providers and their teams are faced with increasing complexity of patients with co-existing mental and physical health needs as a common, clinical issue in daily practice. To address these needs, the MP3C will provide innovative and accessible education for practicing health care providers across health care sectors and patient populations.

As the MP3C and its modules are being developed, the program will be continuing consultations with current and future participants to understand the continuing education gaps and requirements for integrated collaborative care across Ontario.

Who should register?
The MP3C modules are designed for all healthcare providers (i.e. nurses, physicians, social workers, occupational and physical therapists, primary care, etc.), as well as managers and administrators in primary care, hospital, long-term care and community care settings who are working with patients and families to address complex care needs, with a particular focus on co-existing mental and physical needs.

MP3C: Bridging the Gap Between Physical and Mental Health

The assessment and management of co-occurring physical and mental health issues remains a challenge in our healthcare system. Individual clinicians and healthcare teams are faced with increasing complexity and physical and mental health co-morbidity is a common clinical issue in daily practice. The following MP3C module will provide clinicians with practice and evidence-based approaches to identifying, engaging and managing co-occurring physical and mental health issues. Participants will develop an integrated approach to care for these patient issues and will obtain access to practice-ready toolkits to implement in their setting.
