Through interviews, role-plays, intervention metaphors, and videos alike, primary care team members of all disciplines can learn the ins and outs of working efficiently and effectively within the primary care system. Additionally, the channel highlights contextual-based behavioral interventions (e.g., focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy [fACT]) commonly used in primary care.
