Description: Last year, the Veterans Access Research Consortium (VARC) and the Office of Veterans Access to Care (OVAC) funded 4 pilot projects. VARC is pleased to present this Cyberseminar, where attendees will have the opportunity to hear from each Principal Investigator (PI). Dr. Matthew Augustine will discuss his work examining the association of the new Timely Care Metric with Veterans’ experiences with access to care from the Survey of Healthcare Experiences. Dr. Bryann DeBeer will outline her work developing an intensive case management intervention for Veterans who are at risk for suicide, disengaged from VA mental health care, and are receiving VA community care. Dr. Karen Goldstein will discuss her work with co-PI Dr. Leah Zullig. Their study explores experiences with video-based primary care among systemically disadvantaged populations to inform the development of a novel algorithm for promoting clinically appropriate, equitable video-based care. Dr. Kyle Possemato will present her work on a pilot study of a one-day Acceptance and Commitment Therapy workshop aimed at increasing access to mental health care for veterans who are not currently engaged in treatment.
Intended Audience: This presentation is intended for researchers, clinicians, operations, and anyone interested in access-related research.
