CIHS workforce site assembles training resources for integrated care team members: Integrated care teams blend the expertise of providers from various disciplines. Team members include but are not limited to psychiatrists and other physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, psychologists, addiction counselors, care managers, community health workers, peer support specialists, medical assistants, nurses’ aides, and representatives from community agencies. Because of cultural and clinical differences between team members, a successful collaboration, although powerful when realized, can be a challenge to establish. Special training focused on collaboration skills is critical for all team members. The Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) has created a Web site (www.integration.samhsa.gov/workforce) with links to training for various team members. For example, social workers are directed to the Integrated Healthcare Curriculum for Schools of Social Work (www.cswe.org/CentersInitiatives/DataStatistics/58020.aspx), a downloadable curriculum that introduces social work students to the practice of integrated behavioral health in primary care and develops skills in engagement, assessment, intervention planning and implementation, and practice evaluation. For addiction counselors, the CIHS workforce site links to a five-hour self-paced online course (www.thedatabank.com/dpg/423/donate.asp?formid=meetb&c=3845416) designed to help them decide whether working in a primary care setting would be a good fit. “Case to Care Management Training” (www.integration.samhsa.gov/Case_to_Care_Training_One_Pager.pdf) is a one-day course that expands the traditional case manager role from helping clients with serious mental illness change their behaviors to helping them learn to manage co-occurring general medical and mental illnesses. These and other training resources, along with a report outlining nine core competencies of effective integrated teams, are available on the CIHS workforce site. CIHS is jointly funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Health Resources and Services Administration.
