Brief treatment protocols for PTSD have been used successfully in military PC clinics, but these results are not necessarily generalizable to other patient populations. Therefore, this case study will fill a significant gap in the literature by testing a brief nonpharmacological PTSD treatment protocol (Prolonged Exposure-Primary Care/PE-PC; 5 visits; Cigrang et al., 2017) in primary care within the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) consultation model.
- Understand the importance clinical pathways within the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model to identify patients who would benefit from a specific treatment.
- Describe how distrust of the healthcare system related to PTSD in vulnerable populations impacts the Quadruple Aim.
- Describe the features of the PE-PC PTSD protocol.
