The Interprofessional Primary Care Institute provides interprofessional learning experiences to inspire innovation in primary care. Join us for two sessions:

The First Consultation for Depression in Primary Care: “Talk First, Prescribe Later & Diagnose Rarely”

Practicing family physician, Dr. Bruce Arroll, is traveling from New Zealand to share evidence-based best practices with Oregon. He will discuss information from the FDA that shows the placebo-antidepressant difference for differing levels of depression severity. He promotes “talk first, prescribe later, and label people with diagnoses rarely.” Attendees will learn to:

  • Discuss the evidence base for the first consultation for depression in primary care .
  • Demonstrate use of Focused Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (FACT) in clinical practice.
  • Encourage interprofessional dialogue about depression care with Patti Robinson, Ph.D., co-founder of FACT & the Primary Care Behavioral Health model.

Florence Gerber, MBA; Bhavesh Rajani, MD, MBA; Valorie Orton, RN, DNP; Jeri Turgesen, PsyD, ABPP; and Celeste Jones, PsyD, ABCCAP will facilitate an interprofessional experience to remember. Attendess will learn to:
