Core Competencies for Integrated Care
The Annapolis Coalition on the Behavioral Health Workforce (www.annapoliscoalition.org), under the auspices of CIHS, created the Core Competencies for Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care. Divided into nine categories, these competencies provide organizations and individual professionals a “gold standard” for the skill set needed to deliver integrated care. They represent the long-term goal of workforce development for professionals with careers in integrated care. The core competencies provide a reference for the vision of an integrated workforce, and the six categories of workforce development provide practical and logistical assistance to building that vision.
The full report and other key teachings from the Core Competencies for Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care can be found throughout this website and below.
