Description & Implementation

  • Who will present the cases?

Case Example:  One PACT-ICU site’s explicit goal was to integrate mental health into primary care. As a result, patients were selected based upon psychiatric commodity and complexity. Presentations are alternated between mental health trainees (psychology, psychiatry) that work in primary care and primary care provider trainees (NP residents and IM residents).

Case Example:  The Boise PACT-ICU utilize a high-risk patient registry that lists patients who are at the highest risk of dying or being hospitalized in the next 90 days. PCP trainees (NP or IM residents) select a high-risk patient from their panel and present this individual to the team. The discussion incorporates the interprofessional team in the development of the care plan.
