Lori Raney, M.D., discusses the principles of effective collaborative care:

“It has been 15 years since the publication of the Improving Mood-Promoting Access to Collaborative Treatment (IMPACT) trial, which established an effective approach for treating older adults with depression in primary care settings. Since that 2002 publication, this model of care has demonstrated effectiveness for a variety of behavioral health diagnoses including anxiety disorders, attention-deficit disorder, substance use disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, dementia, and others, with new research on the model being published on a steady basis.”
