Description of CME Course

The curriculum includes over 50 hours of training including, two-weekend intensive trainings (24-28 CME hours), live webinars on the second Monday and third Monday (21 CME hours), one hour per month of mentoring sessions with a TNT faculty member/mentor (11 hours), specialized Child and Adolescence Psychiatry Track, and lifelong learning for Alumni. This activity will: Assist physicians and healthcare professionals to gain competence and improve performance to provide high quality care in order to change patient outcomes and improve lives; Healthcare professionals will become more comfortable with the identification and management of patients with substance use, pain disorders, and personality disorders. Patients will benefit from appropriate identification of problematic/dysfunctional behavior and appropriate intervention to lead to improved health; and Traditionally medical care and mental health/behavioral health have worked in “silos” with little coordination or integration. Changes with the payment system (ACA), the aging population, and increasing rates of utilization of psychotropic medication demonstrate a need for assimilation and/or coordination of mental health into/with primary care settings.
