Free CE: Pediatric Behavioral Health in Primary Care
Access to behavioral healthcare for children and teens is at a crisis point in the United States, and primary care providers are increasingly addressing these concerns due to decreased or delayed access to specialists. Use this module to review existing frameworks of integrated behavioral health, learn about the Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist role in facilitating this care, and see an introduction to charting elements that support coding for reimbursement when providing behavioral care in your practice.
