Presentation Type: Panel Discussion

Pediatric and Clinical Child Psychologist are now challenged more than ever to develop better ways of using evidence-based practice principles across diverse settings. While only 2% of children with behavioral health needs meet with mental health providers, 75% of these children are regularly seen by their pediatricians (AAP, 2009).  Integrated care initiatives between pediatricians and psychologists are becoming increasingly more important for promoting more prevention, early intervention, and coordination of care for children with complex behavioral health needs. The brief, operationalized nature of behavioral and cognitive behavioral approaches are ideal for translating evidence-based psychological services to primary care settings.  This panel discussion will first provide an overview of common behavioral health needs presenting in pediatric primary care. Drawing upon experiences from panelists in co-located, integrated, and hybrid primary care settings, a variety of roles for psychologists and other behavioral health consultants are discussed. Panelists will present examples of behavioral and cognitive-behaviorally oriented clinical programs specifically designed for pediatric primary care settings. In addition, panelists will discuss “curbside consultation” practices, physician education, training of psychology learners, and system-level quality improvement projects that can enrich these collaborations. Finally, the panel will address common administrative, logistical, and care-related challenges when moving from tertiary care to primary care settings.
