Wisconsin Child Psychiatry Consultation Program Online Education Series
This series of online modules provides education about psychiatric diagnoses and treatment, with an educational emphasis on psychopharmacology, to Primary Care Clinicians. Given the shortage of Child Psychiatrists nationally and in Wisconsin, in particular, Primary Care Clinicians are being tasked increasingly with assessing and treating children with mental health issues. Primary Care Clinicians report having had insufficient education about psychiatric diagnoses and treatment during their residency training, but they increasingly are asked to perform mental health assessments and to provide treatment for their patients. The goal is to provide education about psychiatric assessment and treatment to Primary Care Clinicians, thereby supporting them in their role as front-line providers of mental health care to children.
