Integrated Health Care for Racial and Ethnic Minorities: An Opportunity to Improve Access and Reduce Disparities Katherine Sanchez, LCSW, PhD and Teresa Chapa, PhD, MPA
March 21, 2014
Integrated health care is gaining significant momentum across the nation as a preferred approach to providing optimal care for both physical health and behavioral health conditions. Research shows that treating physical health and behavioral health conditions as early as possible, holistically, in a coordinated fashion, close to a person's home and community, and in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner leads to the best health outcomes.
This presentation is designed to enhance the audiences' knowledge in the delivery of integrated health care to racial and ethnic minority populations based on a collaborative project led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health and the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. A national consensus report outlining guiding principles, recommendations and best practice innovations related to the delivery of integrated health care services to racial and ethnic minority communities will be presented. Key science, practice, and policy recommendations outlined in this report will form the basis of the presentation and establish a direction for the transformation of the current behavioral health care system from a "treatment as usual" and singular focused approach to an integrated, whole health approach designed to improve the physical and behavioral health status and well-being of racial and ethnic minority communities and persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP).
This webinar is presented by The Office of Integrated Healthcare Research and Policy in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The webinar series is made possible with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority Integrated Behavioral Health Project in partnership with the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, the AHRQ Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care, and the Advancing Care Together project of UC-Denver Dept. of Family Medicine.
