Given the growing emphasis on collaborative and integrated care, psychologists have been given unprecedented training, employment, and funding opportunities to expand their work beyond specialty mental health and to integrate into medical settings. Psychologists are also increasingly called upon to provide interprofessional training across these integrated settings in an effort to enhance collaboration and patient outcomes. However, many psychologists lack the training and skills to effectively educate providers, and formal training opportunities in this area are limited. Indeed, there is a growing emphasis in the literature on the need to provide psychologists with more training on interprofessional education in clinical settings, and a primary initiative of the APA is to offer resources for training interprofessional learners on the competencies needed to effectively collaborate in an integrated healthcare team (APA, 2016). For psychologists to be effective teachers and collaborators in integrated settings, an understanding of medical culture, specific considerations for teaching medical learners across contexts, and best practice models for competency-based curricula and evaluation are necessary.

This mini-workshop will present the development and implementation of behavioral medicine curricula specific to primary care physicians and residents, specialty medical providers, and allied health professionals. Data on the perceived utility and effectiveness of the curricula will also be presented. Workshop leaders will address the following key areas: (a) evidence-based treatments relevant for various interprofessional learners that enhance comprehensive collaborative care, (b) special considerations and challenges in interprofessional training, (c) competency-based curricula and evaluation of learning outcomes for health care professionals.
