Course Overview

With an ever-increasing frequency, primary care organizations are seeing more patients who have multiple comorbidities. A patient with a poorly-controlled physical chronic disease and a mental health comorbidity can not only decrease quality outcomes through compromised care, but increase costs as well. This module will explore collaborative care practices of patients with poorly controlled chronic illnesses who are also living with anxiety.
