Psychologically Informed for Better Results

Course Description

12 Contact Hours / 1.2 CEUs

This online course provides learners a critical foundation for becoming a complete clinician to achieve better outcomes. While biopsychosocial is widely accepted as an important component of patient care, many are struggling to fully understand what it means and how to put it into practice.  This online course will guide learners through a simple but comprehensive understanding of what is necessary to be psychologically informed. From this knowledge, learners can begin a process of transforming themselves and their practice to more effectively connect with their patients for better results.  While this course can stand alone, it provides the necessary background for the 1-day, hands-on, live course.
