Culturally Responsive Clinical Practice
Jan 06, 2023
UT Southwestern Medical Center
This series will increase children’s access to mental health care by increasing primary care providers’ knowledge and comfort in managing behavioral health concerns. Pediatricians and their medical team will learn ways to assess and make simple diagnoses for common behavior/mental health concerns in children and adolescents. Tools learned in this educational series will lessen referrals to mental health practitioners for simple behavioral concerns and decrease the frequency of Emergency Department referrals.
