(AUGUST 1, 2022) Karen Lounsbury, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology and director of foundations and preclinical assessment, is quoted in an article in Social Work Today on integrating service delivery by medical or physical health providers, behavioral health providers, and social service providers. When integrated services function together with a focus on prevention and well-being, patients may experience fewer health-related disruptions in their lives and enjoy overall better physical and mental health. Systems-based practice is a primary competency at Larner. “Within that competency is the specific programmatic objective to demonstrate understanding of the essentials for collaborative teamwork, including interprofessional team dynamics, communication skills, and conflict resolution within the context of a well-functioning team,” Lounsbury says.
