Transforming Your Practice Webinar
April 30, 2018
As the health care system evolves, so can the role of practicing psychologists.
During this 60-minute webinar, viewers were invited to learn more about the growing movement toward integrated health care and the opportunities available for psychologists. The presenters discussed the benefits and steps necessary to transform your clinical practice. Participants learned about a free long-term technical assistance program to help psychologists embrace integrated care and move toward alternative payment models that reward quality rather than quantity of clinical care.
