  • The DIMENSIONS: Work & Well-Being Toolkit for Physicians is designed to assist physicians with their personal wellness and to prevent burn-out. It was created by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus School of Medicine in partnership with the Colorado Medical Society.
     
  • The Guide to Clinical Preventive Services includes U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on screening, counseling, and preventive medication topics and includes clinical recommendations for each topic. This new pocket guide provides an authoritative source for making decisions about preventive services.
     
  • A recent study suggests that there is a shortfall in childhood obesity training in primary care residency programs. However, this deficit may change with innovative programs beginning around the country.
     
  • Patient Centered Primary Care Training Programs is a searchable online database of nearly 100 training programs from academic and training institutions throughout the United States. The database includes programs that are supporting students, resident, clinicians and health professionals in their efforts to deliver primary care that is patient-centered, inter-professional and collaborative. 
  • Time is limited in busy primary care settings, yet depression screening measures may help physicians to identify clients with depression. Targeted screening in high-risk clients, such as those with chronic diseases, pain, unexplained symptoms, stressful home environments, social isolation, people who are postnatal, or elderly may provide an alternative approach to identifying patients with depression.
     
  • The Macarthur Initiative on Depression & Primary Care Toolkit helps primary care clinicians recognize and manage depression and provides simple instruments and information sources for use in primary care settings.
     
  • The University of Washington - AIMS Center provides resources for clinicians such as prescribing instructions and a summary of psychotropic medications. These resources are geared towards clinicians involved in treating mental illness in their practices.
     
  • Mental Health First Aid is an in-person training for anyone who wants to learn about mental illnesses and addictions, including risk factors and warning signs. This 8-hour training teaches participants a 5-step action plan to help a person in crisis connect with professional, peer, social, and self-help care.
     
  • HHS' Think Cultural Health website offers a wealth of resources for building cultural competency. Their continuing education programs are designed to help individuals at all levels and in all disciplines promote health and health equity. Courses include:
    - A Physician's Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care
    , an e-learning program accredited for physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners
    - Culturally Competent Nursing Care: A Cornerstone of Caring
    , an e-learning program accredited for nurses and social workers
