2016 Build a Clinic Webinar Schedule

On March 15, 2016, The Behavioral Health and Wellness Program and its partners at ECHO Colorado and the University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine launched the Build a Clinic Program (BAC).

BAC is a six-month intensive learning community comprised of practices from around the country engaged in integrated care in rural or medically underserved areas. Its purpose is to provide these practices with a comprehensive knowledge of the evidence-based clinical best practices in tobacco cessation and the necessary case-based best practices regarding supporting and sustaining those services.

Program participants watch six themed webinar, engage colleagues from the participating practices in six live collaborative learning sessions, and they work independently with nationally recognized subject matter experts during three individual technical assistance calls.

We are pleased to be able to provide the webinars publicly to any individual or organization with an interest in learning how to efficiently integrate tobacco cessation services and supports into existing workflows.

The webinars are available on the Build a Clinic Materials page.

For more information on the Build a Clinic program and how you can participate in future sessions, please contact Jim Pavlik, BAC Program Manager for the Behavioral Health and Wellness Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine at Jim.Pavlik@UCDenver.edu.
