The Collaborative Care Model is a systematic approach between primary care providers, care managers, and psychiatric consultants to work together and implement a measurement-guided care plan based on evidence-based practice guidelines for individuals (APA).
Past evidence has shown that the Collaborative Care Model has been effective in improving mental health in high-resource settings. In an effort to expand these findings, Dr. Acharya described implementing Collaborative Care in rural Nepal and Dr. Ngo spoke on the evolution of Task-Shifting Depression Care in Vietnam. Research in both Nepal and Vietnam has shown that the collaborative care model can be effective in reducing depression symptoms for individuals over time.
