    Deployment Healthcare Workshop: RESPECT-Mil Champions

    The Deployment Healthcare Track sponsored all day workshop on Monday 6 Aug entitled "RESPECT-Mil Champion Workshop". RESPECT-Mil is a program designed to enhance the recognition and treatment of depression and PTSD for Service members in primary care settings. The Army Surgeon General has authorized the implementation of RESPECT-Mil at 15 Army installations world-wide. This workshop targeted RESPECT-Mil primary care, behavioral health, nurse case/care manager (NCM), and administrative assistant champions at the 15 sites, but others with interest also attended.

    The workshop included updates from an overall program level perspective, as well as updates from specific discipline/role perspectives (i.e., primary care and behavioral health providers, NCMs, and administrative assistants). Best practice presentations were offered for major processes to include screening, provider treatment, care management, quality assurance/program adherence strategies, working relationships with specialty care, and program evaluation. Problem-solving discussions on program implementation challenges/obstacles were conducted.
