September 19, 2013

The Nicholas A. Cummings Doctor of Behavioral Health Program at Arizona State University is hosting the Fall 2013 Integrated Behavioral Health Care Conference, Oct. 16-18, at the Westin Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The focus of the conference is advanced clinical and practice management skills taught by industry leaders. With a health care system that is constantly evolving, the conference aims to provide attendees with techniques on improving patient experiences, treating a variety of entire patient populations and reducing the cost of care.

“Just a few years ago, integrated behavioral health care was only just emerging,” Ronald R. O’Donnell, director of ASU’s Doctor of Behavioral Health program said. “Due to changes in health care, hospital CEO’s and other leaders are seeking professionals who can deliver on the promise of improved health outcomes to more people at lower costs. This conference will help arm those professionals with the skills they need to succeed in these areas.”
