How a Psychologist works with Medical Professionals
As a primary care provider, you are likely to see patients presenting with emotional and psychological conditions and issues, such as adjustment to chronic illness, depression, anxiety, addictions, chronic stress, or lack of adherence to medical treatment. Such problems may require psychological services that your practice may not have the time or resources to provide.
Using evidence-based practices, licensed psychologists can help your patients learn self-management strategies to deal with their chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, and adjust to the emotional impact of health problems and situational stress.
