Behavioral Health Education

As primary care clinics have increased use of telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 WCAAP offered primary care providers who care for children education in effective behavioral health interventions via telemedicine. WCAAP members Dr. Larry Wissow, head of child and adolescent psychiatry for Seattle Children’s Hospital/UW and Dr. Francie Chalmers, pediatrician, Skagit Pediatrics, teamed up with Dr. Robert Hilt and the Partnership Access Line to author the curriculum and provide learning facilitation. 

The recordings and materials below were used during the education series and may also be useful to providers who did not participate in the series.
