This presentation will take the form of a moderated panel discussion, bringing together leaders from some of the most established IBH programs across the state of WA (Community Health of Central Washington, Health Point, Swedish Medical, and Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic). These leaders will discuss subtle differences in how behavioral health is structured and implemented at their respective clinics, which include both small and large primary care clinics, in both urban and rural areas, as well as specialty clinics located within larger medical centers. Key discussion points will include differences in scheduling and program structure, specific type of behavioral health services provided, and best pieces of advice for IBH programs of varying sizes, types, and stages of development.
