PCC webinar: Recommendations on Increasing the Uptake of Shared Decision-Making in Integrated Behavioral Health Care

This webinar focused on new PCC recommendations—ways to increase the adoption of shared decision-making (SDM) in integrated behavioral health care—informed by a literature review and the expert input of leaders across multiple stakeholder groups.

SDM is much less prevalent in the behavioral health space as compared to medical settings, potentially contributing to patient mistrust and poorer behavioral health outcomes. Presenters on this webinar will summarize the recommendations and discuss the implications for practices, policymakers, consumer advocates, employers and others interested in furthering SDM in integrated practices.

The effort was funded by a Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award for Community Convening

Presenting the recommendations: Michelle Dirst, MA, Director, Practice Management and Delivery Systems Policy, American Psychiatric Association

  • Jared Skillings, PhD, ABPP, Chief of Professional Practice, American Psychological Association
