APA, SAMHSA launch Telepsychiatry Learning Collaborative

APA and the SAMHSA funded STR-TA initiative have announced the launch of the Telepsychiatry Role in Medication-Assisted Treatment virtual learning collaborative that is set to start Monday, Dec. 17. The collaborative will be led by Dr. Hector Colon-Rivera, attending psychiatrist at University of Pennsylvania Health System and clinical associate attending psychiatrist in the Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.

 

This 12-week experience will focus on guidelines and recommendations surrounding the use of telepsychiatry, and the implementation of telepsychiatry in practice with a focus on caring for patients with substance use disorders in areas that lack access to traditional care. The collaborative combines live online interactions with on-demand activities and discussion boards to engage learners. Participants will also complete an individual project and earn up to 12 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits™.

 

To join the collaborative, fill out the registration form at Telepsychiatry Learning Collaborative and a group code will be provided to allow access to the collaborative.

 

Space is limited.
