Medical treatment is quickly moving toward personalized care and services that specifically meet the individual patient's needs rather than a programmatic approach that provides basically the same care experience for everyone. Recent advances in knowledge and treatment effectiveness allow providers to truly personalize patient care and improve outcomes. This webinar will help you examine your program's culture of healing and identify opportunities to implement precision care, including a discussion of psychotherapeutic approaches, biomarkers for medication decisions, measurement-based treatment and use of recovery-oriented systems of care.
