With the recent shortage of integrated care professionals in healthcare settings, developing a sustainable workforce of providers has become increasingly important. Areas such as mentoring skills, trainee competencies, and motivation challenges in these settings may add to this shortage problem. This workshop will highlight the importance of mentoring and training professionals from different disciplines to be adequately equipped for careers in integrated healthcare and medicine positions. The presenters will offer a series of content lectures, facilitate roundtable discussions on key topics, and lead a brainstorming session on the future vision of workforce development.
- Identify the current climate of workforce development across professional disciplines and the workforce shortage in healthcare.
- Acknowledge the various paradoxes inherent to teaching and mentoring in healthcare
- • Discuss how to navigate challenging situations with learners and mentees by promoting psychological safety and personal investment.• Present a framework for mentoring that includes ways to assess for interests, develop goals, and guide completion of scholarly activities of mentees• Introduce the role of “care enhancers” in behavioral health services, and how this impacts the future roles and recruitment of behavioral health clinicians
