Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care Training Institute
Behavioral health issues such as addiction, anxiety and depression are often thought of as secondary, although they have an impact on health outcomes. That’s why it’s so important to treat behavioral and physical health together with an integrated care plan. The Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care Academy offers a variety of office-based training and education specifically focused on this integrated care model. Through the Training Institute, Mercy Maricopa helps support medical professionals in providing integrated care services through a series of office-based training sessions. Training sessions target primary care physicians (PCPs), skilled nursing facilities/assisted living facilities and behavioral health professionals. The Training Institute offers free CME credit to medical professionals.
